Former Employee - Host, Waiter, Cook in Memphis, TN
Positive Outlook
No opinion of CEO

I worked at Perkins Restaurant and Bakery full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Trained me to be a "jack of all trades" in the restaurant business.

Cons

Management told me they were going to train me in all areas of the restaurant, ending with management about 6 months after I started. I was trained and working as a cook, bus boy, host, and waiter and no longer offered the job. They would just move me around wherever they needed me. I then got a stomach infection and called in to work because I was in the hospital and was fired.

    I worked at Perkins Restaurant and Bakery part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It was a new store opening, so the training was very thorough. The training staff was also extremely up-beat and encouraging.

    Cons

    The specials were so cheap it was nearly impossible to have a worthwhile day in tips. A lot of servers were also fired within the first week or two for silly things such as not wearing black socks, or trying to sign into their shift a minute early.

    Advice to Management

    Keep an eye on servers not claiming their tips. I watched employees walk out with $50 in tips and still get a full paycheck to meet the minimum wage requirements.

    Pros

    Amazing having a place where employees can come on here and say their stores were dirty...yet the next employee doesnt think they should have scrub or clean anything .....gotta love it.

    Cons

    I have no cons all rest are the same different people . We choose where we are and can create a shift to be whatever we need it to be . I work for another company .
