I worked at Perkins Restaurant and Bakery full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Flexible with my school schedule, good way to make money if you're a student, good coworkers. Any of the cons listed below really only apply to the individual and not the company as a whole.

Cons

If you aren't good at serving and aren't a people-person, you won't make as much money or get the good shifts. Sometimes they'll take advantage of you if you have free time; live close by; and are a hard worker. It's hard, but you have to learn to say "No."

    Pros

    There are always some great people in every company and Perkins has plenty of them. Proud of Perkins partnership and commitment to "Give Kids the World".

    Cons

    bankruptcy was a very demoralizing event- dealing with vendors and customers and the perception that it carries. Also the reality of not being able to maintain or improve the facilities to keep up with customer expectations. Hopefully the new owners have the bankroll and the patience to work it out and get it right.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Figure out what Perkins market is - or is going to be and execute to it. The Perkins ship has sailed to too many different winds over the years.
