    Did Laundry service try to blackmail Papa John? Just watching a story about Papa Johns and at the end, it says John alleges the agency tried to blackmail him for $6 million. Anybody know anything?

      Pros

      None really maybe free small pizza if you open or close. I think end of shift when you can leave this god forsaken place os a huge pro

      Cons

      To many Indians talking in their language so you can understand them. Owner is a complete and utter jerk, very cheap $8 an hour plus $1.50 a delivery, the kicker is, is the area goes from Oshawa to courtice over 20km to deliver a pizza and the owner is to cheap to pay more. Avoid papa johns oshawa south like it’s cancer

      Pros

      pays 1.25/delivery plus 100% of tips. payment in cash

      Cons

      pay is only as good as the number of delivery orders made in an hour. If orders are low, shouldn't that be the employer's burden as an establishment, and not the employee struggling to pay their bills?
