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

    Pros

    Free food, thats about it

    Cons

    Terrible management, terrible co-workers, disgusting enviroment, I've witnessed the cooks smoking while making the food, I've been harassed and threated by co-workers, terribly run.

    Advice to Management

    Work better with employees and get rid of the crappy ones. Do not pick favorites and actually do something when there is a complaint instead of making the staff have to deal with it

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

    Pros

    Great pay (a little above minimum wage to start), easy-going environment, good hours, and the store I was located at, was a brand new store grand opening so the training was very in depth.

    Cons

    Perkins tends to attract the older crowd and they seem to be rude a lot more than at other restaurants, busy-work when there are no customers coming in, and very strict on calling customers "GUESTS".

    Pros

    Friendly general manager, some good managers, tips are nice, customers are mostly friendly

    Cons

    Managers are rude, lots gossip, no flexibility, management favors people, favorites get hours verses others, little or no money, pay is bad

    Advice to Management

    stop yelling at servers in the back (customers can hear you yelling), which causes you to lose business.

    Pros

    Staff was like a mini family, mostly everyone helped each other.

    Cons

    Management staff was never on the same page and there were always favorites. Too many times the staff was confused because the management lost communication with the team.

    Advice to Management

    stop playing favorites.
