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

    Pros

    Fast paced work environment. Fun co-workers. Good money if you work hard.

    Cons

    Huge emphasis on high sales, but they give away coupons like they're candy and completely pay for any meal that gets a complaint. They need food runners or expos to help get food ready. Very very stressful job when it's super busy

    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
