LINE / PREP COOK (Former Employee), Prince George, BCSeptember 16, 2013
Pros: freee food
Cons: not knowing if i was doing regular hours or a double shifts.
Working here i didnt know if I was going to do a regular days work or if I was going to be doing a double. Either way i enjoyed working with the morning staff, the mid staff, the night stafff, even the late night staff. It was always a different staff.
I learned how manage my time working here. cause working different shifts all the time i had to learn – more... this so i had time for family before or after work.
All the managers that i worked with where very fun and out going. i dont think there ever was a dull moment. they had races for quick prep, challenges for the staff for cleaning. It was very interesting. Beacuse i wasnt in a certain staff. So i kinda helped everyone .
Id have to say the hardest part was the steaks because i didnt have a lot of experiences in this area. But i did get the hang of it after awhile.
i enjoyed the racing with management to get prep done in the evening shift. and the challenges they came up with while i was there. – less

Can't complain about the pay/tips, management was less than to be desired.
Host (Former Employee), Edmonton, ABApril 27, 2013
Pros: tips, discounts
Cons: conned out of hours, poor management
One manager was a good worker, the other two did not have the best work ethics. The newest of the three would be hostile if I did not do things his way, even if it was far from efficient.

Fun workplace, great bunch of people to work with
Host/Cashier, Service Assistant, Prep cook (Former Employee), London, ONApril 1, 2013
Pros: friendly coworkers, tips, discounted lunch, clean environment
Cons: shortage of hours, scheduling issues
Co-workers were spectacular people to work with. Everyone carried their own weight around the restaurant, and everyone knew how to work as a team. The hardest part of the job had to be keeping customers in line happy. The restaurant was a humble size, and filled up very easily on weekends. Lineups out the door became difficult to handle, but I was never – more... put in any severely difficult situations working there. It was nice that everyone got along for the most part, and the managment was somewhat understanding of individual situations. However, there was a shortage of hours, and there were scheduling issues once in awhile. Overall it was a nice place to work. – less

Pros: fun, great people, good solid company to work for.

As a supervisor, I was given the responiblites of managing the restaurant on my shift. shift change cash – more... out proceedures, and oversaw 4-12 staff per shift. As a server, I gave our guests superior service. Cash handling, liquor service, training new staff, and general housekeeping duties. – less

very busy work place
Over Night Line Cook (Former Employee), Calgary ABJanuary 25, 2013
Pros: a good place to start learning cooking
Cons: not enough income in winter
a typical day: we do not have enough cook, we try our best to do a lot of things
I learn how to do cooking and preparing effectively
The management did their best to achieve the overall service of the whole restaurant
the hardest part of the job is trying to do too many orders with the minimum amount of time during the rush hour
The most enjoyable part – more... is have some nice co-workers and managers – less

Denny's is a place that you can have fun at work, when the time allows. Just like any job, there is a person who thinks that they are a boss, and make you feel like the smallest person in the world.
