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

    Pros

    I was able to get a lot of experience and pick up things along the way to improve in many ways.

    Cons

    The place wasn't that big and there were only about 2 other Hostess, a lot of people would come in, so we would have to take names, clear down all the tables, place the costumers and bring them their drinks if their servers were busy.
