    Pros

    The people I met here are amazing , outside of work.

    Cons

    Everyone was always complaining. No matter how hard you work and how much extra effort you put into this company you always get screwed over. No one knows what team work is. The servers only care about their money and no one wants to help anyone out ever but, its expected of you to break your back in order to help them. The management doesn't care that you might have kids or a life outside of the restaurant. No matter the amount of extra time and effort you put in, it's never noticed or appreciated. The management likes to complain and sit on their phones locked away in the office everyday. No person in management wants to help you out, they just want to go out and have a smoke. Even if you don't smoke, just say you do so you can go out every hour and take a ten minute break. The company itself doesn't care about customer complaints about the store structure itself, the company only cares about saving as much money as possible. The Perkins in Belden Village needs a remodel, and a new parking lot but, all these things will cost the company money so it will never happen. I highly recommend to not apply or work for this company. If you like to work with highly pessimistic, unfriendly, unhelpful people then, this company is for you!

    Advice to Management

    Do your job, instead of sitting in the office on your phones.
