I have been working at Denny's part-time (more than a year)

Pros

Wonderful guests, tips add up quickly so i made a lot of money, more or less an easy job, very laid back as long as you get job done

Cons

management is incompetent, they cut your hours on your paycheck, management doesn't organize, doesn't plan, animosity between day and night shifts. managers don't side with employees, tend to customers every request no matter how ridiculous

Advice to ManagementAdvice

pay more attention to certain stores, my experience working here has been horrible.

    Pretty standard cooking experience.

    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.

    I worked at Denny's full-time (more than a year)

    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

    No opinion of CEO
