Server (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 12 September 2017
The staff is friendly, for the most part. The pace is steady/busy on weekends. The tips are fair. The management is a little slack though. Morning shifts are the best, however it's hard to get put on them at first.
SERVER/HOST (Current Employee) – Surrey, BC – 11 September 2017
I was required to complete different tasks throughout a shift, I learned to work in a timely and friendly manner, and to prioritize and complete tasks accordingly. Customers were always top priority so any other task such as keeping the restaurant clean, secondary duties, restocking or helping co-workers, was completed between customer service. The hardest part of the job was the very slow times where all secondary duties were completed and finding new tasks to complete was difficult. The best part of the job was speaking with the customers, helping them feel welcome and relaxed and inviting them to talk about their day and how they were doing.

Hostess and Expedite (Former Employee) – Belleville, ON – 31 July 2017
A typical day at work is really busy. I've learned many things such as greeting and seating customers. Many employees working at once. Teamwork based culture. The hardest part of the job is dealing with unexpected maintenance issues or failures.The most enjoyable part of the job is interacting with new people.
Host(ess) (Former Employee) – Sherwood Park, AB – 24 July 2017
Denny's was always a great place to be. Especially when everyone was on the same page and was a really well built team. Managers were always available to talk, even if it was about personal lives. Every work day ended and began with everyone in a great mood.

Dishwasher (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 13 July 2017
Denny's was my first non work experience paid employment, outside of costumer service. Denny's was a wonderful job I learned many things and worked with a highly diverse culture of workers, it was amazing.
it had excellent work place structure. my tasks were by a day to day basis the same. the work was tough, it was extremely fast paced requiring me to be fast and flexible. I was not very good at the start and required a lot of help. however that kind of job made it easy to succeed at many of the other jobs that I would do in the future.
a typical day consisted of bussing tables washing dishes, washrooms and many other things listed and non listed.
free meal per shift, stong compentent co workers, steady hours.
Hostess, Red Deer (Former Employee) – Red Deer, AB – 12 July 2017
Working here I did not have the best experience as my co-worker which was a male did make me feel uncomfortable in my work area, not directly so i did not make complaints. Instead family advised me reassign to avoid more trouble and continue to seek new employment opportunities.
Server (Former Employee) – Penticton, BC – 5 July 2017
I had a good experience working at Denny's. The management in the restaurant are awesome, however, I do not care for one of the higher up managers as it seems like he does not care about the well being of the employees under him, seems like he is solely worried about the labor costs.
Hostess (Former Employee) – Kingston, ON – 4 July 2017
The general manager is organized, well mannered, fair and honest. Confident in his ability to run a team and complete tasks. It is very comfortable to work for someone who is taking good care of the workplace you are in.
