    Pros

    You get to meet all types of people; You get to work with all kinds of people the potential of having fun while working is non-stop. We have great bosses. Our regulars become part of our family and it's always nice to seem them with a smile.

    Cons

    I do not make enough money at the Waffle House.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I feel like you should promote within more, and not just family members and family members, I also feel that if you paid minimum wage AND let the servers keep their tips you may find that the employee turn over is not as high and that they would like to stay and keep their jobs.

    I have been working at Waffle House full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Active work environment, stock ownership, great support from upper management, fair pay, very autonomous if you do a good job.

    Cons

    I can see how this job would be very difficult for some people, work holidays, requires master production skills, 24 hour niche always presents interesting challenges.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to evolve systems and communicate. Update facilities in older stores. New stores look great.
