    I worked at Waffle House full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Cash tips everyday as a server. Nice regular customers. Great co-workers for the most part. Meal for $3 when you work.

    Cons

    They will work you to death! I worked a 72 hour week because so many people quit. Super high turnover. You have to work EVERY holiday or be fired. There's endless exhausting work as a server. 3rd shift is a nightmare! Horrible drunks, fights,etc. Expect $40 paychecks as a server. I was called at 2 am to come in because a server walked out! I refused. This job is not worth the endless stress and exhaustion. Especially for $4.05 an hour.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your servers better wages. Update update update. Everything is so old and rundown.
