    Pros

    Discounts on food and free drinks at times you can make good money when not overstaffed.

    Cons

    Long hours management scheduled too many waiters at once so you couldn't get enough tables.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Schedule the right amount of waiters to work at the right times.

    I worked at Denny's part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Was pretty slow/easy on 3rd shift--could get by without having great waitressing skills. System for submitting orders to kitchen was user friendly.

    Cons

    There were many rude customers, as I imagine is the case at many restaurants. Many employees do not put forth proper effort.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None

    Pros

    Very sound financially. Great leadership overall and especially in Finance, Marketing, and HR. Very down to earth, "real" CEO who has taken Denny's to new heights. Very collaborative and supportive culture that makes me wonder why I ever left. Free Coke Freestyle soda machine with a ton of drink choices.

    Cons

    Some people take the "casual" in business casual a bit too far sometimes. That's really about as bad as it gets.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the great work!
