    I worked at Denny's full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The customers and co-workers were the best part of the job. Going to work was easy and enlightening because of the co-workers. I was made acting manager at night because of my being so caring and responsible.

    Cons

    Management was lax in the job and had a favorite shift that was treated better than others. That made for animosity in the workplace and was hard to deal with.

    Advice to Management

    Please be fair to all employees and try to treat everyone alike, even if you have a favorite.

    Pros

    Customers are friendly, outgoing, employees are easy and fun to work with.

    Cons

    General Management is very unprofessional, curses in front of customers, is very loud while families are trying to enjoy their food. Always yelling at the employees. If she doesn't like you she will make sure your time there is miserable until you have had enough to quit.

    Advice to Management

    Act more professional
