Stressful due to low staffing levels and expectations.
Shift Manager/Delivery Driver (Former Employee) – Santa Maria, CA – May 4, 2018
Very stressful for a shift manager during peak hours when its almost always understaffed. They also have timers for the various stages of making the pizza that are used, I assume for bonuses, to calculate store performance. However, they encourage everyone to falsify the data by pushing through orders before they are actually completed to maintain the best performance numbers. They also have very little to no time for on the job training for new hires, other than watching some online videos and tutorials, due to a high staff turn-over rate. The staffing schedule was always being changed by the district manager during the week and it was rarely available more than a day before the next weeks schedule started!

I grew into this workplace began, as a Delivery driver and maintained store management for a few years. Great place to develop social skills. Various problem-solving skills are required and further developed on the job.

Everything about working for Pizza Hut is terrible. You are paid way below a livable wage - even as management. Their product is so horrible, you spend your shift apologizing to unhappy customers about the awful quality of the food.
General Manager (Former Employee) – Long Beach, CA – September 19, 2017
Customer service and hospitality were typical days. I learned how to defuse and situations (angry customers) I had the privilege to overlook an entire staff of great employees. Friendly and fast paced environment. There wasn't anything really difficult about it. Enjoyed working with customers and my work team.
My experience at Pizza hut is a good one. I learned so much from being there.
Shift Manager (Current Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – February 8, 2012
I have been working at Pizza Hut for a little over 2yrs now. I started when I was in Highschool and I am still curently working there. I started as a sign shaker outside doing advertisment and going door to door dropping off coupons. I have went up in the company and I am now a Shift Manager. Working at pizza hut definetly helped me grow into a responisible and dedicated young woman. Some would say its just a job, but for me, its a beginning into the working world. Everyone has to start somewhere and I'm glad at started at Pizza Hut.
