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

Pros

Trained me to be a "jack of all trades" in the restaurant business.

Cons

Management told me they were going to train me in all areas of the restaurant, ending with management about 6 months after I started. I was trained and working as a cook, bus boy, host, and waiter and no longer offered the job. They would just move me around wherever they needed me. I then got a stomach infection and called in to work because I was in the hospital and was fired.

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

    Pros

    It was a new store opening, so the training was very thorough. The training staff was also extremely up-beat and encouraging.

    Cons

    The specials were so cheap it was nearly impossible to have a worthwhile day in tips. A lot of servers were also fired within the first week or two for silly things such as not wearing black socks, or trying to sign into their shift a minute early.

    Advice to Management

    Keep an eye on servers not claiming their tips. I watched employees walk out with $50 in tips and still get a full paycheck to meet the minimum wage requirements.

    I worked at Perkins Restaurant and Bakery part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    decent tips if you get the hours promised. Which you don't.

    Cons

    Favoritism is out of control. Rules mean nothing. Family Restaurant??? What a bunch of bull. You are just a easily replaceable object that will be taken advantage of and treated like poo on upper managements shoe.

    Advice to Management

    force managers to manage the restaurant. Not their friends and social lives. Spend more time IN THE STORES. Not just making phone calls.
