    I have been working at Denny's full-time for 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
