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

Pros

Friendly staff, quick training. It's an easy job and was pretty flexible with hours. Discounted food was nice, as well.

Cons

Despite your performance, if your tips were low - you'd be out the door pretty easily. Management was lazy.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Pay attention to the cameras to see who really does the job.

    Pros

    The pay is reasonable. If you do your job, hit sales and budget targets, you will be rewarded by bonuses.

    Cons

    The hours... as much as 80 hrs a week because area manager can't (won't) hire help.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Thanks for the fair pay but please make up for the extra hours we work by paying for the time or giving extra days off to compensate.

    I have been working at Denny's full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Good money as server and perfect schedule around school..

    Cons

    Open all holidays including Thanksgiving and Christmas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I know that the upper management is home with family for the holidays, while those of us that work out in the field are working long hours on Thanksgiving and Christmas. You guys care more about money than your staff. Morale is always low these two days every year.
