    Pros

    Waffle House designs their system to always be looking out for the customer and its employees. They reward their employees on all levels based on time with the company, sales success and even personal successes. They have incentive programs during shifts, weeks, quarters or years. Their employee support policies are really quite good. They allow maternity and paternity leaves, even for adopted children.

    Cons

    Working at Waffle House can be real work, on your feet, long hours, poor attitudes from customers and coworkers alike.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to motivate and encourage your employees especially with good attitudes.

    Pros

    Decent salary and bonuses, especially when you manage your numbers well. Three weeks vacation after five years, 401(k) match available.

    Cons

    Work-life balancing is decidedly against your favor. Management support, both above and below is limited. Eight day work week--six on, two off--becomes exhausting.

    Pros

    Co-workers are good for the most part and lower managment works HARD. They are expected to not have a life but do it with a smile. Bonuses are preformance based.

    Cons

    Upper Managment sucks and I was one of them. Too much is expected of you for the money and very high turover rate. Wont get rid of the people they need to cause they are "connected"

    Advice to Management

    Stop all the "hanging out" and get your head in the game

    Pros

    Where else can you go to work and get paid to yell lol. Good teamwork.

    Cons

    Days with no teamwork. Being understaffed.

    Advice to Management

    It would do alot of you some good to spend some time to as just a back up cook. I loved it back when i first started and my manager worked with me but the last few years its been more my manager's have worked against me and everyone else. Now all those managers have moved on up and i have quit guess all i have to say now is good choice in that.
