    I worked at Denny's full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The hours and the pay are pretty nice and working at Denny's looks nice on a resume

    Cons

    Not to many complaints just the job I was doing there should be a custodian somewhere the person that's gathering dishes to wash shouldn't have to stop washing dishes to go sweep up a mess that a server who is not doing anything and standing right there can clean up or hire a janitor who's whole purpose for being there is to clean

    Advice to Management

    Get a better system set up for your employees scheduling that way their personal life and the job have a time of seperation because people do have a life outside work that has to be dealt with a person can always find another job but family first

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

    Pros

    Great tips when taking care of multiple customers, morning shift is the best!

    Cons

    Dennys provides a cheap 2, 4, 6, 8 menu so although you can provide great service customers still leave $1-2 so you work twice as hard to flip your tables to make more.

    Advice to Management

    If server is sat a table five minutes before they're cut let them transfer it as long as the customers are satisfied. Plus don't punish us and keep us on a floor chart with more servers than we need just because you're in a bad mood. It effects all of us.
