    Advice to Management

    If you are a great manager then this job is very easy. On the other hand if you aren’t accustomed to long hours or being able to job code every now and then, then it won’t be for you

    I have been working at Denny's full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The franchise I work for is very understanding when it comes to life’s struggles and try to help they best they can . Running a store, and understanding first hand the labor and food cost , sales the store actually does , and what goes right back into it was interesting . On average , the owners of any Denny’s will only bring in about 10 percent . Everything else goes into the store, or its employees . We got offered medical and dental , 401k for salary managers , 2 weeks paid vacations (hourly employees 32 hours a week) employee meals .

    Cons

    Long hours , and demanding job if you’re doing it correctly . I was scheduled 58 hours but always worked about 70 to get what was needed done . Pay was fair , honestly is a great place if you find the right stores

    Advice to Management

    Stay involved . Get to know your employees and their needs . Continue training to standard if you want to exceed all expectations
