    I have been working at Denny's full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    There are great people that you work with, as well as great people that come in and out of the area.

    Cons

    The cons are that you will work late some nights, and then work the next morning. It is a demanding, but rewarding job.

    Keep doing great!

    I worked at Denny's part-time

    Pros

    Management treated me with a lot of respect. Made sure I had plenty to do. Job also comes with good food perks.

    Cons

    Very dirty and difficult. Had to clean all tables and wash all dishes. Consistently understaffed, and swamped with dishes.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more people to help out to do dishes. It is very difficult to do dishes for eight hours straight.

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

    Pros

    Its a family restaurant so that obviously makes it a family type of environment which I love cuz I have children as well, and makes it easier being away from home and my kids when I get to meet new people on a daily basis who for the majority are very friendly and I also get to come home with money (tips) every day I work, plus a check 2x monthly

    Cons

    Servers don't control what happens in the restaurants kitchen so if the food is not cooked to order, the customers usually first get upest with the server, and it's up to us to keep the situation under control and replace menu items in a prompt, friendly, and courteous manner.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the awesome work!!!
