A large pizza move
Papa John’s used to have this one fun system to reward its employees who succeeded in convincing customers to upgrade their medium pizza orders to large ones. There was no cash reward. Instead, if you got a certain number of points, you could score free movie tickets.
And that’s exactly what one employee decided to exploit. Instead of convincing customers to upgrade their mediums to larges, he’d input all large pizza orders as “successful upgrades” and reward himself. His ingenious plan actually worked! With no questions asked, he got himself a couple of free tickets to the movies. Bravo, Papa John’s employee!
