I worked at Denny's full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Fast paced days. Pay can be alright for a not so glamourous job. Usually plenty of hours, especially during peak seasons.

Cons

Often incompetent managers that don't even care. Loose food standards, especially when very busy. Can be crappy hours - bar rush hours.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Provide more incentive for employees to strive for great service.

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

    Pros

    Fun clientele, easygoing environment, tips can be good when it's busy or if you've established regulars. Nice to leave everyday with money in my pocket.

    Cons

    When business is slow, it is SLOW. Everyone is struggling to stay on the clock the longest to make money, and most of us have one or two other jobs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This goes way up the management chain, but there has to be a better way to promote business other than low prices and the 2,4,6,8 menu - pricing that low is killing our sales, and giving the impression that Denny's is just a "cheap place to eat" so customers come in expecting fast food service and a full meal at a value menu price.
