    I have been working at Denny's full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The customers were interesting and the hours were flexible. These places are located in almost any city and the hiring process was simple.

    Cons

    Bad tips. Terrible food, not a very progressive company. Tips were not always the best. certain locations were not kept up to standards.

    Could be better, but it's a foot in the door.

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.
