enferex27 karma

What is the craziest order you have received?

JimenezCLJ45 karma

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 karma

That sounds only slightly disgusting.

JimenezCLJ12 karma

it didn't look appetizing to me

TrollinAtSchool5 karma

Do people request ranch on top frequently?

JimenezCLJ8 karma

yep. some get pissed cuz they gotta pay extra

promthean1 karma

You still made it? Props to you.

JimenezCLJ5 karma

well yeah, if you pay for it, i'll make it

hawkeye80726 karma

What's the grossest thing you've seen happen in your establishment?

JimenezCLJ34 karma

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 karma

High five for keeping your place so fresh and so clean clean.

JimenezCLJ20 karma

i'm pretty strict, not gonna lie, when it comes to the "close to open/open to close" policy.

Enzonoty10 karma

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 karma

i hate when that happens, even with slip resistant shoes, you have no hope of survival.

navymmw3 karma

just like lemon wedges where I used to work (outback steakhouse). Those things were little land mines waiting to kill someone

JimenezCLJ3 karma

haha my buddy works at outback and he complains about the same shit

lawlessk24 karma

Are there any rules at your store?

JimenezCLJ57 karma

keep your shirt on

awesomemanftw17 karma

No pants? Sweet

JimenezCLJ45 karma

i keep the AC on high so you better have a good excuse for the ladies XD

JimenezCLJ13 karma

nevermind, after reading your username, you won't get the joke

deadpa19 karma

Do you trade pizza for food at other restaurants?

JimenezCLJ30 karma

oh yeah, there's a starbucks next door and we have great trades

werkasaurus4 karma

haha is that a common thing in winnipeg there is a little ceasers and starbucks next door to each other in quite a bit of areas.

JimenezCLJ2 karma

yes and no, here in AZ, it's usually LC, Wendy's, and Dominos next to Starbucks.

kikaider198719 karma

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 karma

dude, we've done that lol. except we made it thin crust lol

SaddestClown18 karma

Should I get the deep dish? I've been meaning to but the store is out of the way.

JimenezCLJ26 karma

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 karma

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.

JimenezCLJ18 karma


monkeyman807 karma

any way the general public can request it? i'm addicted to your pan pizza.

JimenezCLJ10 karma

ask, the worst they can say is no

lovesickremix4 karma

WHY don't they advertise THAT!, buying one today thanks!

JimenezCLJ7 karma

they have like 3 commercials

nedmonds2415 karma

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 karma

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 karma

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.

JimenezCLJ8 karma

jeez thank god i hate golden corral already lol

Tylerddrummer4 karma

Wait, you're in az? Please tell me that's what you meant by here in az and more specifically, please be in Tucson.

JimenezCLJ4 karma


CrippleDrifting4 karma

Where in Mesa? I'll come see you if you give me a reddit discount

JimenezCLJ4 karma

right now i'm in Gilbert, my main store is in Mesa.

Tylerddrummer1 karma

Damn, I wanted that animal style...

JimenezCLJ2 karma


Tylerddrummer5 karma

"Mom, do you need anything in Mesa?"

JimenezCLJ1 karma

haha you wanna drive this far?

Tylerddrummer2 karma

Well geez if she needs something :p

JimenezCLJ3 karma

true son right there lol

XDJacobDX14 karma

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 karma

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 karma

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.

JimenezCLJ12 karma

idk but that shit's good lol

ladykansas13 karma

What was your funniest/most embarrassing moment at work thus far?

[deleted]33 karma


ladykansas10 karma

The first photo totally made my night. :)

JimenezCLJ9 karma

lol i had to show the customers who were waiting, it was too epic. they laughed too

[deleted]13 karma


JimenezCLJ26 karma

our GM makes us dump the pizzas out of the box then throw the box in. This happened when one of our employees was harassed by a homeless person. i usually leave a garbage bag of crazy bread by the dumpster so they can be happy

kingcreon11 karma

How many people have you banged?

JimenezCLJ5 karma

um...what? lol

kuddle9 karma

why is the crazy bread so good?

JimenezCLJ12 karma

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

awesomemanftw5 karma

Maybe you do at your little Ceasars, but that is certainly not true at any Little Ceasars I've ever been to.

JimenezCLJ9 karma

how so? do the ones you've been to suck? because i've been to ones that are terrible. but i am doing this IAMA cuz my store has bragging rights lol

ladykansas6 karma

After working there and knowing all the behind the scenes details, would you still eat there?

JimenezCLJ14 karma

it really isn't bad at all. not the freshest but i can tell you that i will eat a pizza if i myself make it. i'm from New York, so i know what a real pizza is

SubzeroMK6 karma

This man knows his shit

JimenezCLJ4 karma

thank you

iwanttofork6 karma

Whats the largest order you ever had?

JimenezCLJ13 karma

10 Pep, 5 cheese, 10 3 meat, 25 bags of crazy bread, 15 cheese breads, and 15 2 liters assorted.

ifelldownlol4 karma

Holy fuck.

JimenezCLJ15 karma

haha yeah i had the same reaction on the phone with the customer. get this though, it was for a SWEET 16

WingAndDing7 karma

Sad twist: No one got the invitations :( Happy twist: Got all of the pizza :)

JimenezCLJ2 karma

oh haha

Piratian4 karma

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 karma

omg dude that's happened with an order of 20 for a high school, i got pissed.

arnie_apesacrappin5 karma

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 karma

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 karma

Thanks for the reply. I know what I'm having for dinner tomorrow night.

JimenezCLJ1 karma

lol great!!

Diptura5 karma

So why this job? Sounds like a cool job. Do you have dreams to make it any further up the business?

JimenezCLJ12 karma

actually this is my pedestrian job. i am actually an artist and i sell art. i only do it locally though, brings in a bonus every now and then

Bojangopoli5 karma

You cant just leave us hanging I need to see your pizza art, on another note I see you posted pictures of feet in another thread, neat.

JimenezCLJ6 karma

yeah i know, two totally different worlds. lol. i have made art on pizzas, lemme look for a pic

yarneytheyarnosaur2 karma

Do you have an artist website or a portfolio or examples of work we can see?

JimenezCLJ3 karma

i'm still building it. i wanna be able to have an online store set up. right now even with this job, money is a tight matter

Reddit4Giggles5 karma

Dude i always get the 5$ pizza deal and crazy bread, i love LC! ON you're breaks do you ever just munch out with you're co workers a box of pizza?

JimenezCLJ8 karma

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 karma

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 karma

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 karma

How many Deep Dish pizza's do you guys average?

JimenezCLJ7 karma

recently we started selling the new Deep Deep Pizzas and we sell about 100 a day. they became so popular within the first week

FyreWulff6 karma


JimenezCLJ3 karma

what? lol

gunitto886 karma

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 karma

the original deep dish is rectangular and some stores still offer those and the deep deep dish

sniperhare5 karma

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 karma

$5 cheese/pep $8 deep deep dish $8 3 meat treat and then $6 for one topping other than pep

OriginalDokument3 karma

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 karma

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

OriginalDokument2 karma

What is your favorite pizza to make for yourself?

JimenezCLJ11 karma

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

thechinskyguy3 karma

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 karma

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 karma

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 karma

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.

Entar03 karma


JimenezCLJ4 karma

30 minutes max. and it depends the flow of customers

ProfBatman2 karma

Why are you at work on your day off?

JimenezCLJ3 karma

i got hungry for crazy bread lol

hawkeye8072 karma

There's no rules....There's one rule!

JimenezCLJ6 karma

that's right, keep your shirt on

hawkeye8072 karma

I met Dave Warden, the guy in the commercial, he's hilarious.

JimenezCLJ1 karma


Richman7772 karma

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 karma

i'm sorry to hear about the robbery. but that sounds like a busy store!

guyatrandom1 karma

Dumb question: do you know where i can buy the parmesean garlic wing sauve?

JimenezCLJ2 karma

i honestly don't know. i doubt it's an LC special sauce. you can try at like Target or walmart

MrEdman41 karma

I stand by the fact that chain restaurants can never meet the standards met by NY pizza. Care to reply?

JimenezCLJ1 karma

dude i agree. i'm from Long Island so i know what a real pizza tastes like

ladykansas1 karma

Any ingredients or methods that people wouldn't expect in mass market pizza? (Like you actually have to make dough from scratch each day etc)

JimenezCLJ4 karma

honestly, it's very simple "start with a pitcher of water" kind of method

MrDeadlyHitman1 karma

Is it true that you can ask for an "old" (like 1-2 hours old) pizza and get discounted/free?

JimenezCLJ2 karma

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 karma

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!!!

JimenezCLJ3 karma

i would love to have white pizzas here. and no, we don't have the cinnastix

cold_ass_honkee1 karma

honestly, how much does it cost you to make a hot and ready?

JimenezCLJ3 karma

idk, probably around $3 a pizza

Metallus1 karma

My neighbor, who used to be a manager at LC, told me that there was exactly 17 cents in a hot-n-ready cheese pizza, not including labor. Slightly more for pepperoni. Not sure how accurate that is, just what I've been told.

JimenezCLJ2 karma

maybe. i'm not sure

mykidsaresleeping1 karma

What's your policy/practice on witnessing people leaving kids in their car to pick up a pizza?

JimenezCLJ2 karma

i give them dirty looks, sometimes i'm just a dick to them. like i take my sweet ass time to get their order and kinda hint it to them that they have kids waiting

Erthern1 karma

Who's the rudest person who's ever come in? What's the dumbest thing anyone has ever done there? What dumb stuff have people done near/outside the store?

JimenezCLJ7 karma

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 karma

Good call. I probably would've given them the spiciest flavor just so they could suffer.

JimenezCLJ6 karma

haha. it's Franks Red Hot, it's not too spicy

Erthern1 karma

Dammit. Then I definitely would have given him the plainest kind. And last question, what pizza do you recommend?

JimenezCLJ4 karma

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 karma

Can I order that? Like is that even request able?!

JimenezCLJ4 karma

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.

AznEpic1 karma


JimenezCLJ3 karma

There's a company called "Crescor" that makes a giant metal box kinda like a heat refrigerator.

411_WAS_AN_INFO_JOB1 karma

What do managers make there?

JimenezCLJ2 karma

depends on the franchise owner.
