What is the craziest order you have received?
JimenezCLJ45 karma2013-07-10 03:53:55 UTC
a cheeseless pizza with every meat topping we had on it with a LOT of ranch on top. thing was a pain in the ass to cut lol
kilroyishere8917 karma2013-07-10 05:48:02 UTC
That sounds only slightly disgusting.
JimenezCLJ12 karma2013-07-10 06:26:51 UTC
it didn't look appetizing to me
TrollinAtSchool5 karma2013-07-10 14:26:42 UTC
Do people request ranch on top frequently?
JimenezCLJ8 karma2013-07-10 14:44:48 UTC
yep. some get pissed cuz they gotta pay extra

What's the grossest thing you've seen happen in your establishment?
JimenezCLJ34 karma2013-07-10 04:05:05 UTC
honestly, we have a pretty clean store. but i will tell you that closing clean up and seeing the pepperonis that employees drop and get kicked under the "make-line" gets pretty nasty.
hawkeye80736 karma2013-07-10 04:08:02 UTC
High five for keeping your place so fresh and so clean clean.
JimenezCLJ20 karma2013-07-10 04:09:40 UTC
i'm pretty strict, not gonna lie, when it comes to the "close to open/open to close" policy.
Enzonoty10 karma2013-07-10 05:20:28 UTC
I work at LC, and pepperonis that DONT get kicked under the makeline and just stick to the floor and everyone steps on them are disgusting
JimenezCLJ14 karma2013-07-10 06:30:08 UTC
i hate when that happens, even with slip resistant shoes, you have no hope of survival.
navymmw3 karma2013-07-10 15:08:45 UTC
just like lemon wedges where I used to work (outback steakhouse). Those things were little land mines waiting to kill someone

in winnipeg there is a little ceasers and starbucks next door to each other in quite a bit of areas.
JimenezCLJ2 karma2013-07-10 16:55:52 UTC
yes and no, here in AZ, it's usually LC, Wendy's, and Dominos next to Starbucks.
kikaider198719 karma2013-07-10 07:30:38 UTC
lookin for a good breakfast pizza? use the nacho cheese sauce for the sauce and use breakfast like toppings ex: ham, bacon green peps. for some strange reason the cheese sauce kinda tastes like eggs when cooked. i used to work at lc for 6 years, everyone loved it.
JimenezCLJ17 karma2013-07-10 07:33:12 UTC
dude, we've done that lol. except we made it thin crust lol
SaddestClown18 karma2013-07-10 04:20:21 UTC
Should I get the deep dish? I've been meaning to but the store is out of the way.
JimenezCLJ26 karma2013-07-10 04:21:20 UTC
try the Deep Deep Dish. it's so good, and instead of cornmeal for the pans, we use a garlic butter and it adds such flavoring
Vetheron18 karma2013-07-10 06:08:32 UTC
I'm a Domino's manager. We have garlic butter for the crust ring on hand tossed pizzas, but use plain butter sauce in our pan pizzas. I'm going to have to try the garlic butter in the pan of the next pan pizza I make myself. That sounds delicious.

What is your opinion on the Golden Corral whistle blowing, and do you think it was necessary to make more people aware of the need for quality in restaurant/delivery chains? I know that you said that your store follows strict policies involving cleanliness, but did the recent event change your view at all?
JimenezCLJ18 karma2013-07-10 04:46:37 UTC
i'm going to be honest with you, i have never heard of this. however here in the state of AZ, there is a HUGE risk when you have one small flaw or even sell a product that is under the minimum requirements or even violates the policies. Health inspectors always give us an A rating. i also believe that if a business "needs" more quality, then it should be removed from the books.
nedmonds2413 karma2013-07-10 04:57:39 UTC
They're basically infamous for rodent infestations and overall low health standards, and just last week an employee exposed their habit of placing its All You Can Eat food by their dumpsters in preparation for inspections.
I appreciate the answer; every experience I've had at Little Caesar's was always good affordable pizza.

Do you guys use any secret ingredients for the Crazy Bread to make it taste so delicious, or am I only tasting the fatty butter?
JimenezCLJ20 karma2013-07-10 04:25:24 UTC
it's just butter and parmesan. but i will admit, the butter made for LC is a special recipe cuz i have never tasted butter so good.
Richman7775 karma2013-07-10 12:22:24 UTC
It's not butter if you notice the packaging. The wording of it is weird in that you can definitely tell its not butter. Its (at least when i worked there) worded something like buttery spread or buttery sauce.

because we at Little Caesars honor the "Quality! Quality!" rule

Lol, the one I worked at was right next to a military base. We had them order 250+ pizzas for pickup at 7 am one day. It was hilarious walking in and seeing 250 pizzas stacked up in our small output store. It wasn't so hilarious when we got the call at 8 am that they cancelled the order
JimenezCLJ3 karma2013-07-10 14:42:01 UTC
omg dude that's happened with an order of 20 for a high school, i got pissed.
arnie_apesacrappin5 karma2013-07-10 04:54:17 UTC
So way, way back in the day my favorite pizza was the square Meatsa! Meatsa! It came in a two pack on what seemed like a three foot long piece of cardboard. I would destroy that thing. At some point, Little Caesars quit making square pizzas and it was gone. It didn't taste the same when round. I think they were different crusts.
So my question is, does the new deep dish taste like that old square pizza?
JimenezCLJ5 karma2013-07-10 04:55:47 UTC
the new deep deep dish is the same way as you described. you get 2 square pizzas that guaranteed that chewy cheesy crust, and i do believe we sell a 3 meat version too, just ask
arnie_apesacrappin1 karma2013-07-10 05:28:55 UTC

JimenezCLJ8 karma2013-07-10 03:55:39 UTC
definitely, when working in a super fast paced food environment, we just grab a cheese bread, mark it in the waste log, and have at it
monkeyman804 karma2013-07-10 06:36:34 UTC
what tips can you give to get a better order?
read on a forum a long time ago that we should order extra butter on everything to make sure you're getting a fresh baked and also extra delicious pizza.
JimenezCLJ9 karma2013-07-10 07:28:59 UTC
just say you want a fresh one out of the oven, a pizza from LC should never take more than 5 minutes to 5 minutes and 20 seconds depending on temps. and if they're not producing pizzas almost every 5 minutes cuz of rush hour, etc. then they need to get new people working. for a "best" pizza, get crazy crust which is butter and parmesan. some stores charge $1. some don't. we usually do, unless i'm in a good mood (i never charge honestly) lol
sniperhare4 karma2013-07-10 03:51:44 UTC

That may be to old for you to remember but in early 90's LC's made a fuckin' jawsome pizza that was rectangular in shape, and delicious in taste.
JimenezCLJ3 karma2013-07-10 14:45:36 UTC
the original deep dish is rectangular and some stores still offer those and the deep deep dish
sniperhare5 karma2013-07-10 03:59:07 UTC
We don't sell nearly that many at my store, but they're pretty popular. You guys do $5 for a large one topping, $8 for your Deep Dish?
JimenezCLJ6 karma2013-07-10 04:07:20 UTC
$8 deep deep dish
$8 3 meat treat
and then $6 for one topping other than pep

Do you still eat Little Caesers outside of work? I worked at a Little Caesers for 4 months once, I couldn't eat pizza for a while after that - eating pizza almost daily for 4 months will mess with you pretty bad haha
JimenezCLJ3 karma2013-07-10 04:54:23 UTC
i could eat pizza somewhere else like Geno's, Sbarro, etc. but if it's at an LC, it's my store and if i make it myself

What is your favorite pizza to make for yourself?
JimenezCLJ11 karma2013-07-10 05:04:32 UTC
Animal Style Deep Deep Dish. it's my own creation that uses Buffalo Ranch to replace the pizza sauce, then topped with sausage, bacon, and ham, then butter and parmesan. thing is a heart attack in a box lol

Hey there, I've been an employee at Little Caesars for about two months now. I won't be eighteen for another year and a half, but when I turn eighteen is it worth going through the process of becoming a part time manager?
JimenezCLJ5 karma2013-07-10 07:23:47 UTC
depends on the requirements your GM/franchise has. mine was not about being the fastest at sheet outs or dressing pizzas, it was all about leadership and maturity
FlowerChild72753 karma2013-07-10 03:53:28 UTC
How much money does the company actually make on the $5 pizzas? It's a great deal, but there has to be a profit margin for the company... I'm just wondering what it might be?
Also, I'm planning a pizza party for my niece who is going away to basic training (AF) in a few weeks. Any "specials" or deals I should ask for if I decide to go through LC for pizza instead of another chain?
JimenezCLJ6 karma2013-07-10 04:00:19 UTC
all stores are different in grossing profit but i can tell you that each day my store ranges from 1,900-4,500 a day in sales.
try to call a week in advance, and ask for a "school" deal, at my store that deal is tax free, idk where you live so it may differ. it can save a lot of money.

I worked at Little Caesars for about a year and a half while in high school as my first job. My neighbor owned all the franchises in the area and I was required to get a job by my parents...
Place was fun as hell to work. My manager was awesome (impromptu water fight in the middle of a Saturday night like it was no problem) but the co-manager was sort of insane. She was mean but knew she was and if you proved yourself, she would be respect you.
I started working there right when we (not sure if it was national) started doing Hot n' Ready. Back when I worked it was only on Mondays and you didn't have to get out of your car. We had a table set up out in the parking lot with the to-go bags full. Running that table sucked. There'd be like 30 cars waiting to get pizza.
I also got robbed at gunpoint right after close one night. That was not fun.
JimenezCLJ2 karma2013-07-10 14:35:01 UTC

MrDeadlyHitman1 karma2013-07-10 16:38:29 UTC
Is it true that you can ask for an "old" (like 1-2 hours old) pizza and get discounted/free?
JimenezCLJ2 karma2013-07-10 16:54:01 UTC
nope. we never keep pizzas past 30 minutes to ensure freshness and any store that does should be shut down. you want a discount, just ask the manager for a deal
I_Am_Waters1 karma2013-07-10 05:44:01 UTC
Do you guys do any other deals on specialty pizzas. When I was in California last year the LC, they had a white chicken pizza for I believe $8. I had never heard of a white chicken pizza from LC since then. Also you guys should make cinnamon sticks!!!

JimenezCLJ7 karma2013-07-10 04:15:19 UTC
too many rude customers, but the rudest person had to be when they wanted wings and i explained to them there are 8 flavors and they yell "i don't have time for this crap, are you hot-n-ready or not?!" so i jsut gave them the plain wings no flavoring. :)
Erthern2 karma2013-07-10 04:22:58 UTC
Good call. I probably would've given them the spiciest flavor just so they could suffer.
JimenezCLJ6 karma2013-07-10 04:24:21 UTC
haha. it's Franks Red Hot, it's not too spicy
Erthern1 karma2013-07-10 04:26:33 UTC
Dammit. Then I definitely would have given him the plainest kind. And last question, what pizza do you recommend?
JimenezCLJ4 karma2013-07-10 04:30:31 UTC
depends. i'm a meat lover and a little spice so i invented the "animal style" which is a pizza that has the buffalo ranch instead of the tomato sauce and no pepperoni. basically, it's sausage, ham, bacon, buffalo ranch sauce (from the dip cups) and cheese with parmesan and butter crust.
Erthern2 karma2013-07-10 04:31:30 UTC
Can I order that? Like is that even request able?!
JimenezCLJ4 karma2013-07-10 04:34:14 UTC
there is no pizza there called the animal style but the sauce replacement, i'm sure if you pay for the dip cup, they should be able to, ask a manager. in my opinion, if you're paying money, they should have no problem.
