Former Employee - Host, Waiter, Cook in Memphis, TN

I worked at Perkins Restaurant and Bakery full-time (more than an 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.

    Not a permanent job, but a decent one.

    I worked at Perkins Restaurant and Bakery part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Tips, server culture, fast-paced energetic environment, when you're done you're done - unlike a corporate desk job - you get to go home and be done.

    Cons

    long hours, pissy customers, unstable income, little respect, loud, physical, hot, tiring, and at my location - not very lucrative.

    Former Employee - Server in Forked River, NJ

    I worked at Perkins Restaurant and Bakery part-time (less than an 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 ManagementAdvice

    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.
