Pretty standard cooking experience.

I worked at Denny's part-time for more than a year

Pros

If you can handle the pressures of a high-volume kitchen, the work is great. Nothing on the menu is particularly complicated and Denny's kitchens are often designed for high speed.

Cons

If you love cooking and want to learn more about food, this place isn't for you. I had the experience of working at a Denny's that was mostly staffed by college kids. This meant great energy, but also a certain level of apathy on the part of some employees. I found myself working alone a handful of times. Not easy.

    Pros

    Good processes in place (test the heck out of everything), decent number of talented employees, solid leadership, great work/life balance, marketing has turned things around in past 2-3 years

    Cons

    Pay is pretty bad, good amount of silos, no diversity, little training

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You will never attract and retain top-level talent unless you pay more

    Pros

    Challenging, Benefits including bonus', and good employers.

    Cons

    Sometimes a revolving door with employees, and resolving problems with customers can be very stressful.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Praise the people who work under you and always remember that you are only as good as your team.
    Work with the team more to understand the full operation of the business. Never ask someone to do something you would not do yourself. Never judge a persons work ethics. Be compassionate.
