I worked at Perkins Restaurant and Bakery part-time

Pros

Great working environment. The other servers I worked with were friendly and for the most part worked together to get through each shift. Managers could get a little frustrated at times, welcome to working in the food industry.

Cons

Dealing with irate customers who expect everything from you, but offer nothing in return. Tips were usually minimal and expectancy of service was usually pretty high.

Advice to Management

Streamline the whole process with better training for those helping the servers.

  1. "I enjoyed working for this company with the exception of how many servers were on the floor at one time. Too many."

    I worked at Perkins Restaurant and Bakery full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    You do have the ability to make good money provided that you get good shifts and are willing to work a lot of hours.

    Cons

    They do put a large number of servers on the floor at one time. If they have one busy night they treat every night like that from that moment on when its clearly not needed.

    Advice to Management

    Cut down on the amount of servers and you could also save money on labor costs while keeping your employees happy.


  2. "Unprofessional management"

    I worked at Perkins Restaurant and Bakery part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I loved my coworkers
    The work was easy
    Easy to get time off if needed

    Cons

    Management played favorites to an extreme.
    The amount of side work was insane.

    Advice to Management

    Just because you don't like someone on a personal level doesn't make them bad at their jobs. If someone is a hard worker, good at what they do, and dependable then they deserve to be treated like it.
