    Pros

    Really did enjoy the job and most of the people that I worked with.

    Cons

    Corporate didn't supply the needed of anything. Budget, management, repairs, or well really anything else.

    Advice to Management

    Increase the amount afforded to the individual stores.You can't raise sales when your food budget is to tight to order what is needed; or when equipment breaks down and it can't get repaired because the home office wont approve the costs.

    Customers CONSTANTLY trying to get food for free.

    Advice to Management

    Don't put the sales quota so high that Managers can't make the bonuses. We work VERY hard for the money!!!!!

    I worked at Denny's part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Employee discount was awesome. Made great tips during busy season. My schedule was very flexible, usually I could get whatever day off I needed. Was able to cross-train for other positions. Had opportunity to further my career, as I was offered management training.

    Cons

    Unprofessional work environment at times. Cooks were overworked and underpaid, which led to high stress and occasional outbursts during busy hours. Some workers were able to avoid doing their sidework correctly, which made more work for everyone else.

    Advice to Management

    Offer a little more money to cookspend and raise your standards for workers. With more decent people that care, this would be a great place to work.
