I worked at Waffle House full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

You are well compensated for your efforts if you are skilled in managing your store and its people.

Cons

The constantly fluid 24-hour work schedule and lack of professionalism and organization from the upper management.

Advice to Management

There needs to be more support for managers in a 24 hour business.

    I worked at Waffle House full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good pay comparable with other restaurant chains. Ability to earn promotions through hard work. Fun atmosphere.

    Cons

    Open 24 hrs/day, 7 days/week, 365/yr...No Holidays off, ever. Only 1 weekend off every 6 weeks. A recruiter will tell you that a Manager works about 55 hrs/week, however, in order to perform well, this winds up somewhere between 65-80. If you want to succeed at Waffle House, you better not try to have any kind of life outside of the company.
