    I worked at Perkins Restaurant and Bakery full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The customers are great and my regulars made it fun to work with.

    Cons

    The employees were very rude and thought that their way was the only way.

    Advice to Management

    Work as a team instead of just playing favorites, and rotate server stations and shifts.

    Pros

    Ability to develop managers and employees, while maintaining the day to day restaurant operations.

    Pros

    Decent money without much tax deduction. Easy to work around schedule.

    Cons

    Can easily make more money elsewhere as a waitress. Working with the public can always be challenging, especially when they are hungry on a busy day.

    Advice to Management

    Strive for better benefits for staffing.

    I have been working at Perkins Restaurant and Bakery part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    You can make just as much money on one Sunday morning here as a minimum wage employee makes in 20 hours elsewhere. It has provided me with the ability to work, go to school, and still have fun. Overall, my coworkers are friendly and welcoming. I've had about a 50/50 experience with store level management. Regular customers can be very friendly. Plenty of opportunity to take on multiple responsibilities (serve, host, bake, cook..) and move up (certified trainer, service lead, management...) if you desire.

    Cons

    Customers can be crazy, whether they're regulars or one time visitors. Side work can be gross and take a while if it isn't regularly taken care of. Many servers do know what they can get away with skipping and race to get out once they're cut. I'm sure that's standard for any restaurant though. Serving is a physical job that gets very tiring.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure you check EVERYONE's side work, even the employees that have been there for years.


  9. Very good starter job.

    Pros

    People interactions. Can be very light-hearted and fun work environment. Potential for good money in various positions.

    Cons

    People interactions. Working with those new to workforce. Some have no understanding of proper etiquette having to do with responsibility to employer.

    Advice to Management

    Value your employees and find ways to give them what they are worth even if not monetary.

    Pros

    As a server, you make great money and see lots of different kind of people. The staff that you work with varies as turnover in restaurants is typically high.

    Cons

    Long hours often with random breaks as you take them to match business flow. As with all customer service jobs, occasionally have to deal with people who think you are beneath them.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of those who take care of your customers. It goes a long way towards keeping good staff.
