    I have been working at Denny's full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Decent benefits, flexible shifts, decent bonuses, good food, some of the staff is nice

    Cons

    Most of the staff are constantly grumpy, the training process is a joke, they make promises that they don't keep, they overwork the management, they severely under pay the management ( based on the expected 50 hours a week)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The training process needs an overhaul at the store level. They don't have many training stores and the ones they do have aren't even run up to standards. You learn the wrong way to do things before you even start.

    I worked at Denny's part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Company values, Teamwork, Fun atmosphere, Laid back, Fast paced.

    Cons

    Sometimes you get to busy to complete all task accordingly. Micromanagement. Drunks on graveyard shift.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is room to grow within the company. I was there just under a year and I was trusted to perform management duties, and was promoted to a trainer for newly hired servers.

    Pros

    Discounts on food and free drinks at times you can make good money when not overstaffed.

    Cons

    Long hours management scheduled too many waiters at once so you couldn't get enough tables.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Schedule the right amount of waiters to work at the right times.

    I worked at Denny's part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Was pretty slow/easy on 3rd shift--could get by without having great waitressing skills. System for submitting orders to kitchen was user friendly.

    Cons

    There were many rude customers, as I imagine is the case at many restaurants. Many employees do not put forth proper effort.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice
