    A way to make a living throughout college

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThe hours were very flexible and can make quite a considerable amount off of regulars and on the weekend mornings.

    ConsThe customer is always right so no matter what you say or do, if the customer says you are wrong you ARE wrong and that is that.

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to the employees sometimes they may know how to handle a certain situation because they have delt with a similar one like that before

    Bad management

    Maintenance (Current Employee) Davenport, FL

    ProsReally not a good reason to work here to be honest poor team work in Davenport Florida unorganized

    ConsWell multitasking as in washing dishes and busing tables cleaning rest rooms at the same time unirrelevant for one person

    Advice to Senior ManagementUnderstand employees more ask them are they alright and don't take advantage of them well that's what they did to me in Davenport and more sanitizing as cleaning the work place better..oh good food

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    "Server/ Certified Trainer/ Host

    Host/Cashier/Server/Certified Trainer (Former Employee) Flemington, NJ

    ProsGreat money, Good hours, opportunities for SMALL advancements (host to server or server to trainer). Turnover was low because most of the management was professional and courteous.

    ConsAfter training a new server she became my manager in 3 weeks. Eventually she was fired and arrested for stealing from the company.

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagement is necessary for any company to function, but it needs to be qualified management

    Never a dull moment.

    Anonymous (Former Employee)

    ProsIf you love people this is one of the best places to work. They always have something entertaining going on there. Great fun people to work with.

    ConsSometimes the rush hour can be overwhelming and if you're busy at work and you have an appointment that same day there is a high chance you will miss that appointment.

    Server

    Server (Current Employee) Fridley, MN

    ProsPerkins is a great place to work for college students. Tips, short hours, and also usually the available times are nights and weekends, as the morning crew are lifers.

    ConsIt is basically a fast food joint with servers. You will be expected to take on many tables at a time, and move fast. It can be very stressful, but once you get the hang of it, you can make a lot in tips.

    Okay

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    Prosfun environment laid back Training is alright there are not many perks no paid breaks but at least free pankckes

    Consschedualing sucks get your schedual one or two days before work managment sits on their but and eats while on the clock, there shouldn't be so many managers different policies with different managers makes it complicated to do your job. For instance I was writain up for something that happened while on the shift before mine. (how was i supposed to know tha that had happened)

    Advice to Senior ManagementBetter training for managers and oh yeah stop closing stores so not everyone has to share shifts

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

     

    Not a permanent job, but a decent one.

    Server (Former Employee)

    ProsTips, server culture, fast-paced energetic environment, when you're done you're done - unlike a corporate desk job - you get to go home and be done.

    Conslong hours, pissy customers, unstable income, little respect, loud, physical, hot, tiring, and at my location - not very lucrative.
