I worked at Denny's full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Fast paced days. Pay can be alright for a not so glamourous job. Usually plenty of hours, especially during peak seasons.

Cons

Often incompetent managers that don't even care. Loose food standards, especially when very busy. Can be crappy hours - bar rush hours.

Advice to Management

Provide more incentive for employees to strive for great service.

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

    Pros

    I liked some of my staff

    Cons

    Grueling work hours, no work/life balance, benefits too costly, no PTO, no vacation for 2 years, franchise owners make it chaotic to work here, dirtiest kitchen I've ever seen.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your lower level managers that have outside experience; fix things that need fixed such as organization and cleaning/maintenence of equipment; have more than 3 managers running 24/7/365 operations so that they can have a life outside of work; KNOW WHAT IS GOING ON INSIDE YOUR FRANCHISES and get the corporate liaison out that just "turns his head" to all the wrong doings of the owners.


  2. "Horrible, disfunctional and dishonest"

    Know what you are doing before you do it, your company is headed for serious problems if you do not train and pay your employees
