    Pros

    The manager was very organized and always handled the customers that were really rude. The job is fast paced so the shift goes by very quickly. After one year, I got a dollar raise.

    Cons

    My coworkers had attitudes that made it really hard to work with. Lots of customers expect the employees to magically sit them when the restaurant is full and serve then when other customers have been waiting longer, so the customers can make it really stressful

    Pros

    Best reasons to work at ihop is, they are always hiring, great money in the weekends, flexible shifts, and again easy to get into

    Cons

    Some downsides to working for ihop are, management is very unprofessional, management is unorganized, and management gets away with sexual harassment.

    Advice to Management

    Advice to management is, keep it professional at all times, treat you employees as well as you treat your customers, treat your employees better as a whole.

    Pros

    I loved my coworkers. I've never worked somewhere before where we all got along like this and had so much fun at work, and even hung out off work. That factor (plus the great tips) made the bad management almost tolerable.

    Cons

    The general manager is unprofessional, dishonest, and seemingly racist. She plays favorites and will not keep her word. Frankly, I don't know how she's managed to keep her job this long.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your long time employees with respect and fairness, especially ones who bring in regulars and positive customer reviews.
