    Pros

    You can make a lot of money plus it's easy to move up in the company . And if you ever have to move its easy to get a transfer any where in the south.

    Cons

    Dealing with a staff and been the only manger for that store can be difficult and even can become overwhelming at times

    Advice to Management

    Communication is key it's very important to show up not only during the busy shift but the slow ones also to help coach and train

    Pros

    Corporate is great to work for, you are treated with lots of respect. Praised all the time for good work. Especially if your good. Worked for franchise and was once a week if not more the unit would scream and cuss you out on the floor. I have worked for waffle house for 15years. This is my career, my job. I love it

    Cons

    Franchise would be my con. Not professional at all cuss employees out all the time loads of favortism and management has to many family members working for them, if your not family you dont stand a chance.

    Advice to Management

    franchise needs badly to become corporate to get rid of these awful managers.

    Pros

    Waffle House offers a good salary package. Just not for the amount of hours

    Cons

    Hours required to work. Upper management controlling what the managers are allowed to do as far as recruiting and termination.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your manager's. They are the ones that actually run the store. If a store is in a increase with minimum complaints, leave it alone.
