    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.

    Pros

    Daylight savings hours let off early on Friday's during DST.

    Cons

    Stagnant, cheap, Identity crisis, Too many people in upper management not willing to do things differently.

    Advice to Management

    Quit treating Senior VP's like they are "better than everyone else" and no one should question them. Figure out who you want to be as a company. Quit coming up with slogans thinking they are going to motivate people and put some real substance behind improving customer service.
