go Cashier | Enumclaw, WA | Aug 22, 2019 A big first time caper or in need of excess cash.

I’ve worked here for a little under 3 years and had had 3 different bosses within that time. I started in high school and honestly it was a fantastic first job for me. I used to be very shy and quiet, so this job definitely broke me out of my shell. However, now that I’m older, I’ve been here longer, I know how this place runs and I’ve moved up to managing as well as being a driver, cook and server, I can tell you this..
-the hours are horrible if you really need money. They recently cut hours so no employee works over 20 hours a week.
-corporate is a joke and expects things that are seriously impossible. They also don’t listen to the suggestions from people who actually work in the store. It’s always their way, or no way.
-half of the employees are lazy and the store manager refuses to fire anyone, even after multiple, and I mean MULTIPLE customer complaints against these employees.
-even only working 20 hours a week, you’ll still get scheduled 5 days a week.
-if it’s slow when you arrive to work, you have to wait until it gets busy to clock on. I’ve waited 2.5 hours before.. and trust me, I understand the labor and why it’s important to watch it and make sure the labor isn’t negative, but sitting at your work for an hour almost every shift, not being able to go home, just waiting to clock on, is insane.
This place isn’t horrible. Like I said, it’s great for a first time job. Or even as a second job if they’ll actually agree to give you a set schedule. You’ll get n

Pros

Easy job, discounts, great coworkers

Cons

Corporate and some managers, hours, scheduling

lead Cashier | Corpus Christi, TX | Jun 17, 2018 Learn how to be human.

I’ve worked at two different pizza huts as both management and team member and these things don’t change.
Even across state borders.

No tolerance for sick employees- people get sick, but you could be throwing up blood and your manager is still going to be very angry if you call in. Company says those with chronic illnesses will be worked with, but they do not work with you – if you work at pizzahut be prepared to come to work sick or loose your job.

Pay- your going to be underpaid and overworked.

Harassment- is going to happen, worked at two different places and been temporarily placed in several others- kitchen work is drama work and HR won’t do anything about it. If you work at Pizza Hut in south Texas HR doesn’t even exist so good luck.

Management- Serious favortism

Pros

free food after certain shifts

Cons

often refuses breaks, no tolerance for sick days, favoritism, poor pay, poor benefits, lack of team work, drama, drug usage

star Cashier | Tucson, AZ | Jan 25, 2017 Fast paced and enjoyable if you have a big crowd.

A typical day starts out with the opening cook making the prep for the day. The driver gets the prep ready for the following day. Managers start creating duty lists for the day’s workers. The day starts to get busy around lunchtime. The lunch rush starts to decrease around the 2-4pm time frame and picks back up by 4. The most hectic part of the job is if someone forgets to do their job correctly, the entire store fails. Each employee is a major part of a machine. If one piece breaks, it all breaks. The most enjoyable part of the job is that if you have a good crew, it’s like working with a second family.

Pros

50% off food, up to $10

Cons

If management doesn’t know what they’re doing, everyone becomes miserable and lack of effort sets in.

lead Cashier | Portland, OR | Oct 23, 2014 fun position to work at but sometimes can be very nerve-racking if you are a student.

management was not very good there, it seem that store manager didn’t care about their people. I did learn so much, I learn so many new management skills, the big importance of customer service, food safety, how to be a team player, dealing with busy and slow day, to maintain OTD at a good percent without having to affect any of the customers and employees. Most of the time at Pizza Hut was really stressful because it was all the time busy and learning how to deal and resolve the customer need and problems was really fun and I enjoyed a lot.

Pros

Some discount on food and meals

Cons

we were only allowed to take a 5-10 minutes break. no lunch time.

moderate Cashier | Stone Mountain, GA | Jun 6, 2012 A nice location to enjoy the things we love to eat and different personalities.

A typical work day at Pizza Hut moves at a steady pace. We try to make sure every customer is satisfied everytime they come to our restaurant. The management is good. We all are a team that tries to work together to have a positive and growing company. The most enjoyale part of my job is puttng a smile on the customers’ face. I’ve learned that the working industry is not as easy as it looks. It takes patience, positive attitudes, and many others things dealing with work ethics.

Pros

an employee meal of the day, good customer service, etc

Cons

short breaks, no benefits, etc

lead Cashier | Houston, TX | Mar 29, 2017 everyday can be fun or nerve-racking

I have to do the work load of two to three people most of the time. The job can be stressful due to low staff. Management is bad and good. Keep the place running if very hard at times. Working with others is the best part of the day. When your not alone and someone has your back is the best part of everyday for me. Pay is low to how much work you do. The raise is a joke. The job can be stressful. I learn a lot from my job. I learn what its really like to work really hard. How to manage and handle work everyday. Its a good learning experience. I wish the pay and work load was better.

lead Cashier | Fresno, CA | Apr 5, 2012 It was fun and happy home to work but you had to do your share to keep it that direction.

A typical day would be, coming in during the evening when it is rush hour and help cook the pizzas. If the drivers are slow then I would have to do deliveries untill things get caught up. If things are slow I would start on other things like checking to see if inventory are low or if hours may need to be regulated. Then after the night is done, my team members and I close the store usually by one or two in the morning.

Pros

free lunch

Cons

hours were really regulated

lead Cashier | Machesney Park, IL | Jan 31, 2021 adequate job while in college

The job was decent. Cashiers don’t get very many hours but if you’re willing to learn different positions more hours are available. It didn’t seem worth it to stay and move up just because they didnt want to pay mangers much. I left to work a retail job, at an entry level I was making .25 cents more then I would’ve, had I stayed to become a manger at Pizza Hut.

Pros

Pretty easy

Cons

Management pay could be better

run Cashier | Elkview, WV | Oct 6, 2014

shift Manager

I usually arrived to work early to see what kind of prep needed done asap. Then I clocked in and proceeded to get prep done, take orders, cash customers out, and at the end of the shift, we did basic cash handling duties. Actually, i believe I taught more employees/ management more, as I had worked for Pizza Hut in the past (1989).
