    Pros

    Employee turnover makes it very easy to go into management. Easy training, and a relatively competitive salary. Of course it depends on the franchisee, but interaction among your restaurant, your franchisee and corporate can be very thorough. There seems to be adequate opportunity for advancement, but at the end of the day, you have to remind yourself that it is only Denny's.

    Cons

    Extremely long hours (55+/week), little to no benefits, no bonus opportunity, and very little recognition. Management is often under very little scrutiny to do more than strive for mediocrity and go unnoticed.

    Advice to Management

    In Denny's efforts of the past twenty years to revitalize and give a positive new image to the brand, they seem to have lost sight of the fact that employment standards needs to rise accordingly. If you want a high-quality, casual dining restaurant to run as such, then stop paying your management as if they work at a Burger King.

    Pros

    non traditional hours & days off

    supervisors try hard to give you the days & time off you request whenever possible

    Cons

    no career pathing, growth opportunities; all advancement depends on who you know, not what you know; job security is next to none (constant reminders you can be replaced & the pay does not reflect the level of knowledge or professionalism they expect of employees); management communicates as little as possible & only when absolutely necessary with appropriate spin, of course; this company has problems keeping private business & personal matters confidential. Would NOT recommend working here unless you are just passing through & need the job.

    Advice to Management

    get to know whose backs you sit on to earn your paycheck & consider treating them like diginified human beings with respectable rates of pay. This company could do greater things than you give it credit for - no matter who is sitting in the CEO's seat - but you don't pay attention to the people who do the work. You also put WAY too much emphasis on United Way (forced) "giving".
