Benefits and Perks
To plan for old age, slightly more than half of workers maintain savings accounts through the company's 401(k) plan. Benefits include paid time off, but Papa John's Pizza hands out more vacation days than sick days; more than half of workers report receiving the former, but only 29 percent report receiving the latter. Health insurance comes as part of the deal for just over two-fifths of workers, and two in five workers report receiving dental coverage as well. Papa John's Pizza folks also make good use of a casual working environment, free drinks, life insurance, and a company cell phone.
