    I worked at Waffle House full-time

    Pros

    The only reason I'm not working there now is because I had to take care of my mother. They were great and patient. And honestly, they haven't fired me. I'm just to scared to call and ask if I can come back.

    Cons

    I have nothing bad to say about my time working there. It was all love.
