    I worked at Perkins Restaurant and Bakery part-time

    Pros

    Easy job if you have prior server experience. Customers are very friendly. Opportunity to make some good cash tips.

    Cons

    Scheduling was horrible. Preference given to long term employees. Shifts are typically 12-13 hours long. Other staff would simply take your shifts without asking if you wanted to switch with them.
    Kitchen was pure chaos!
