Team Member - Full Time (Former Employee) – Ebbw Vale, Blaenau Gwent – 16 February 2018
It was a very friendly working environment. I enjoyed my time there but wanted more money. I wasn’t earning enough for the hours I was doing. I would push myself to the limit and try to push my hours up everything to earn a good monthly salary but it wasn’t enough. I feel like dominos pizza wasn’t for me.

The work can be difficult at times especially during the rush and when your first starting at the Job . Your co workers can really make or break your experience here. Usually short shifts especially as an in-store but can be longer days shifts . Management in my experience usually okay but has been faults . Good flexibility for hours and good at taking into consideration any prior commitments . Hours unpredictable could be anywhere from 10-30 hours
Free Pizza, Good co workers, Ability to progress, easy work

You learn lots of new skills and meet some fantastic people. The workplace is a good environment and the atmosphere is great. It can be a very busy day at times and some can be quiet days but overall it is a good working day.
Generally nice atmosphere with good co workers excluding managers

Managers often place blame on individuals and can over work individuals. Favouritism is often shown to individuals. There’s a lack of progression. As often you can be stuck doing one job in the shop without the option to progress in the shop

domino's is a great place to work it always keeps you busy not a single second just hanging around, its very clean and hygienic. they had to let me go for something that wasn't their fault, i have a surface piercing and can only remove the ball but they still couldn't allow it

Working at Domino's is a good FIRST job. It taught me a lot if key skills that would advance me and become better at future jobs. For me, I got the job on a part time basis, and was working from around 12- 20 hours per week. I was 16 and was offered £5.50 as a starting wage which i was very happy with at that aged as I was expecting minimum wage (£4.05). When I first started, it was quite hard but enjoyable. I started on learning how to make the pizzas and how much toppings I should put on etc. Then after a couple of months, I got the grasp of things, I was able to make pizzas quickly and efficiently throughout busy times to help keep the flow steady and I was answering the phones with confidence and taking card and card payments as well. I was really enjoying my job until after a few months when I started finding my job quite easy to do and wouldn't have the motivation like I did when I first started. It wasn't a challenge for me anymore so my interest started to slip and I was starting to make a lot of mistakes but I was forgiven. The most enjoyable part of the job was simply socialising with my colleagues. Mostly everyone there was really nice to me and would talk to me to get me settled in. But, other Domino's shops may not be like this as I had only worked in 1. The hardest part of my job was working weekends. For me, I was only put on weekend shifts. Thursdays - Sundays, 5PM - 9 or 10 PM. I would never have time to socialise with my friends outside of work and this definitely took away my social life as I was not meeting with my friends and only always working. The managementmore... was VERY good at my store, everything had a neat structure and everything was time well and organised.
I learned a lot from this job, I learned how to speak to customers with confidence and how to take cash and card payments. I also learned how to work in a very fast paced environment.
Another downfall is that, I had to work on public holidays (Christmas eve and New Years Eve) without extra pay. I was really frustrated when I had been told that I had to work on New Years Eve.
To summarise, this job is a good first job but has a lot more Cons than Pros.less
50% discount and free 7" pizza after everyshift
Have to work weekends and have to work public holidays without extra pay. Also, you will hardly ever see your friends unless you take a day off on the weekend

Terrible management and unsociable hours. They abuse your sero hours contract, asking you to work atleast every tuesday, friday, saturday and sunday, then will send you home after an hour if they dont need you. Minimum wage and no respect from management.
Instore Team Member (Former Employee) – Haydock – 9 November 2017
My overall experience with Dominos Pizza was not good but not altogether bad. I found the management staff to be extraordinarily professional but also friendly and personable. Also the atmosphere in the store was one of a cooperative and happy environment. However the work itself I found to be quite stressful at times, coupled with the poor hours and low pay this amounted to a memorable experience in more ways than one.
Team Member (Former Employee) – Flitwick – 30 October 2017
little hours as the contract is flexi hours.nice people to work with, but poor interest from the franchisee managers. no proper training provided. poor conditions of work as it's always understaffed :( it's ok rather than no job but not to make a career .
free meals, friendly team members
the schedule is always unsure, you may get hours, you may not
Instore Team Member (Former Employee) – Torquay, Devon – 26 October 2017
Usually busy but on odd days it’d be so quiet, but still had multiple tasks to complete as in food preparation, store hygiene and when it’s busy you have to work well with other team members to make it a steady flowing work place or else it’ll mess up the speed of everything
Instore Team Member (Former Employee) – Waterlooville – 16 October 2017
As for someone who worked for the company for 5 years. With this job I found it was long hours without brakes. The rate of pay was poor. When it comes to moving up the ladder in the company didn’t praise at any point. You have to work every weekend. With this job you will find no matter what role you take. In the job discription it said (flexible hours) this is a complete lie! When ever trying to get days of requested even on days of personal needs. This company only thinks about its self and work their employees to the bone. I was so gutted about the way Dominos pizza treated me as a person and an as employee.
Instore Team Member (Current Employee) – Swinton – 3 October 2017
This is a really fun, busy workplace where you can have fun with your colleagues. But I have had many issues with the management at the Swinton store. Ranging from them not listening to they employees to just completely not training me on things I wanted to be trained on.
Team Member (Current Employee) – Birmingham – 18 September 2017
A typical day at dominos is stressful, tiring and mentally draining. What's I have learned from this job is that if you aren't surrounded by people you can have a laugh with and people that support you it make work a nice place to be. Under pressure on a busy day management is not very good , there is a lot of shouting and mistakes, which puts the worker on edge. The most enjoyable part of the job is having a laugh with other colleagues.
