Good for a first job, but not something I wanted to stick around for

Pros

I started out as a hostess at Perkins as my first job. It was rough, as I was not used to the hustle and bustle of busy Sunday mornings, but once I got the hang of it, I learned how to multitask and think on my feet, skills that I first practiced in this job. There is some career advancement depending on your location; I became a server about a year after I first got my hostessing job. I was fortunate that I had some great supervisors who were willing to work around schedules and let me go home if I was waiting on one final table for the night to finally leave.

Cons

Working at Perkins became more frustrating when we changed general managers. Our new GM often did not understand what was going on. And while many servers did have the tendency to call out last-minute, he misdirected his frustration at me one morning when I caught a stomach bug and had to call out of work for the day. Our store was also quite dirty.

Advice to Management

Listen to servers and hosts/hostesses who are dissatisfied and give them ways to feel like they're valued.

    Pros

    Some co-workers are great to work with

    Cons

    Expectations of some salaried manager( the least paid of the three) are great. Corporate (meaning franchise) upper management make demands that seem to be unrealistic

    Advice to Management

    they wouldn't listen anyways
