    I have been working at Perkins Restaurant and Bakery part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Ability to move around in the company, upward mobility, employee has a strong influence on scheduling, most MC's restaurants have young cohesive employees who get along in and out of work

    Cons

    Have to work every holiday, no wage raises, they strongly hassle you for being sick even if its one time in five years, poor training program, bureaucratic, outdated, just not a place that one would be proud to say they work at, there is no table limit you can be seated upwards of 12 parties at once.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Audit cash reconciliations, Most store managers are too young and are not prepared to manage, Increase the companies training for all positions, rewards your employees instead of only threatening them as a way of motivation.

    I worked at Perkins Restaurant and Bakery

    Pros

    Good atmosphere. Easy to keep your job. Relatively easy work. Flexible schedules. Food discounts while working. Not a high pressure environment.

    Cons

    No real training program. No support for employees wanting to move up in the company. If you already know the job....you are good to go! If you need to be trained...go somewhere else where the employees count and are considered an asset to the company not just a warm body to fill in the scedule gaps.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in your people. Provide a training program for those interested in advancement. Insist that your GM's invest time in hourly and management employees looking to advance their careers. Tell your GM's to be interested in helping everyone, not just the pretty young girls. I currently work for another company and God has blessed me with a very good career where I am positively impacting the growth of my new company. With a little effort I would probably have stayed with your company.
