    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We are located by a college, we need to cater to that crowd. I give maaayyyybe 4 senior discounts on senior nights, while college students walk right past our empty restaurant. There is no reason our place should be so empty night after night. Get rid of the stinking 4 for 20 menu and do a college night! Also, there are 3 military bases by us. We should have a military discount as well, if you want to bring more people in. It doesnt have to be BOGO, it could be as small as 10%! They dont know it will only cover the tax!

    Current Employee - Assistant Manager in Hickory, NC

    I have been working at IHOP full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    good day time hours, steady business, established concept.

    Cons

    hours and bonus program. assistant managers are required to work at least 55+ hours a week and really see no benefits. They are not family oriented whatsoever so if you have kids or a homelife this isn't the job for you. They are open on every holiday and the pay is less than average for management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take better care of your long-term employees.

    I worked at IHOP part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Quiet nights, friendly clientele, tips reflected service most of the time. Regulars could be very nice to see.

    Cons

    Drama even within small amount people working, sub-par food, overbearing management. The wrong regulars could be a pain to see. People expect a lot regarding the food.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you want us to do our best and be our best, show us through your work ethic and attitude. If you don't want to be there, neither will we.

    I have been working at IHOP

    Pros

    cash in hand every day, meeting new people every day, free shift meal, knowing this is only temporary

    Cons

    extreme favoritism going on, most of the people there are extremely rude and insulting, management is extremely rude and insulting actually

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you want your employees to do better work and act like they want to be there, treat them like you want them there. Constantly insulting people and yelling at them about how stupid and terrible they are will get you nowhere. It does nothing but create a hostile environment that no one wants to be in.

    I worked at IHOP full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Given freedom to do what was necessary to increase sales. Worked with Chamber of Commerce and local High School to increase sales and renew interest in hometown activities.

    Cons

    You can do everything right and still it won't work out due to home office personnel's shortsightedness and misuse of finances. Results were company's loss of franchise.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at results (such as profitability increased by almost 100% ) instead of listening to one person's personal opinion. Initially sales were $13,000 weekly but after programs were implemented sales increased to $25,000 week average.
