Good environment and friendly people working cohesively usually.
head customer service representative (Former Employee) – Maidenhead, Berkshire – 23 February 2018
Working at domino's was very enjoyable due to the (mostly) friendly staff. The work distribution was not the best i have seen though. The management led well in the labouring aspect but worked younger workers much harder than their older friends. Overall it is a cool place to work though.
Pizza Maker (Former Employee) – Birmingham, West Midlands – 9 January 2018
I was at college when I worked at dominos and they wanted me to quit my college course to work for them, I was only doing 4hours a day in the evening from 6-10 I was at college rein 8am-3pm most days disgusting
In-store Crew Member (Former Employee) – Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire – 7 January 2018
Excessive work for insufficient pay. The managers were generally unhelpful with the exception of one individual regional manager, the working culture was not enjoyable and it was not an environment I would recommend anyone should work in.
Delivery Driver (Former Employee) – Cumbernauld – 7 January 2018
Paid 90p per delivery using your own car...think about it!! No guarantee on hours and sent home when quiet. No guarantee on shifts they go to the "managers" favourites. Managers (god love them) are usually promoted from way way beyond their capabilities and therefore are usually inept because one day they are making pizzas next they are managing the store but...they are cheap and usually last about 3 months and then another pizza maker takes over. You know the story (hopefully)
Driver (Former Employee) – Boston, Lincolnshire – 5 January 2018
This job was enjoyable, the people there were great. Awful that you have to use your own car for deliveries and you only get a measly 75pence per delivery, hardly covers the use of fuel let alone anything onyour personal vehicle, the store struggles to keep staff for this reason.
Zero hours contract, the minimum wage and management that don't care about staff mean you have no way of knowing if you can actually pay your bills or not.
Managment favours certain people and give them all the benefits and ignore the rest. During the busy hours, you can expect to do everything by yourself as the management go to their office and ignore calls for help and then blame you if anything goes wrong.
Training is given by other instore members who have probably just started or you'll be on yourself as a new starter and expected to figure out toppings by pictures.
If you complain about not getting enough hours Management will look for any reason to fire you
In-store/Pizza Maker (Former Employee) – Cardiff – 3 January 2018
During the winter months it gets depressing as managers care only for bonuses and not employees. You will have to work over every public holiday including christmas and new years. You will rarely get time off to do anything you want.
You can learn great skills as well as move up fairly fast if you have the capacity for it.
Free Food, Good workers, Can be a good laugh
Long hours, Treated like robots, Employee happiness isn't cared for.
Generally nice atmosphere with good co workers excluding managers
Team Member (Former Employee) – Caterham, Surrey – 3 January 2018
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
Shift Runner (Former Employee) – Lincolnshire – 2 January 2018
I worked at Domino’s for 5 years as a driver and then as a shift runner. I loved the place and the job, was really proud to work there and was very happy there for the most part. However, as a driver you are expected to drop everything & cover shifts all the time, & if you are reluctant to work on your day off they will emotionally blackmail you into doing it, and as a shift runner you have to work 50-60 hours a week so you cannot have any kind of work/life balance. You also don’t get each week’s rota until the weekend before so it’s impossible to make any plans in advance, and if you need to book childcare it’s an absolute nightmare as everything is so last minute. Shift runners have a lot more responsibility than they do at other similar jobs, eg food ordering, stock management etc, which I enjoyed. Generally there is a fantastic atmosphere amongst staff and a proper team spirit, with everyone looking out for one another, and there are only a few childish or unprofessional people trying to spoil things for the others, but generally people see through them. It’s only a problem when it’s the managers acting like that. You get a free pizza at the end of your shift, 50% staff discount, free uniform and drivers keep all their own tips. If it’s a quiet day you sometimes get to eat during your shift, but that’s rare. As a shift manager I would often work 12 hour shifts without even a chance to use the loo let alone eat or drink! It’s a very VERY demanding environment if you’re in a busy shop, but that also adds to the enjoyment a lot of the time as everyine’s full of adrenaline.more... Staff generally have a good laugh together, and that keeps you going through the busy times. Due to the hours, going to work becomes your ‘social life’, which is why there’s such an upbeat atmosphere. I would thoroughly recommend working at Domino’s.less
Free pizza & staff discount, fun atmosphere, nice staff, team spirit/‘family’, fits around uni/another job/School times
Long & antisocial hours, min wage even on bank holidays, no breaks, no pattern to hours
Brilliant workplace and environment, work hours not so great
Shift Manager (Former Employee) – Ormskirk – 1 January 2018
The workplace had a great feel always enjoyable and I always enjoyed being at work, the work itself was very easy and low stress. At the end of a shift it was nice to be able to leave and not worry about anything that had happened during it.
The senior management quite often made debatable decisions (in my opinion) in terms of other managers and staff and poorly communicated nationwide deals which lead to incorrect stock and staffing levels
A typical day at work would involve delivering pizzas to customers in nearby locations. While back at the shop i help out the team with tasks there. Positive atmosphere, enjoyable job with a good community of people Hardest part is driving long hours
delivery driver (Current Employee) – Willesden – 27 December 2017
At dominos there are a lot of things to learn as a new employee, its not simply just making pizzas and deliver them, there is a lot more to it, such as food hygiene is one of the most important thing and preparation of ingredient before the store gets very busy etc.
