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 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.

Shift supervisor/Server (Former Employee), Delta, BCJanuary 27, 2013
Pros: fun, great people, good solid company to work for.
Cons: not a safe environment, ive had to involve the police dozens of times to ensure staff safety.
I started with Dennys as a server. after aprox. six months the owner of this franchise, approached me and asked if I would like to assume the role of Service Coodinator. (shift supervisor) for 1-5 days a week, depending on the needs of the business. As a supervisor, I was given the responiblites of managing the restaurant on my shift. shift change cash 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.

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 is have some nice co-workers and managers

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.

HOST (Current Employee), Winnipeg, MBSeptember 6, 2012
Pros: discount on your food to eat
Cons: long hours
It's kinda busy in the morning and in the evenings it depends. i learned how to take payments, work in a fast-paced, how to be organized and how to make some drinks and desserts. My co-workers are very friendly and very helpful. the hardest part of the job is that when i'm in a multi-tasking situation. And the most enjoyable part of the job is that you can be yourself when you're at work.

A day working at dennys as a hostess was enjoyable. My duties was to meet and greet customer as they enter the resturant clean and fold cutlery, wipe down table and chairs, cashed take out orders places in store or over the phone for take out.

Dennys all of my co-workers where nice and supportive they help me understand the rules and let me know the ins and outs of Dennys which made it a lot easier for me.

What i enjoyed most about Dennys was that everyone got along and worked as a team

Friendly, personable staff
Service Assistant (Current Employee), CanadaAugust 6, 2012
A typical day at work would be washing dishes and general cleaning, as well as communicating with customers. Throughout my time at Denny's, I learned how to be patient and maintain a positive attitude even in a tense or negative situation. The management at Denny's has not always been up to the standard that it could be, but it has definitely improved in recent months. The managers are vey accomodating and willing to help when needed. The hardest part of my job is managing time. Many of the jobs I must complete during the day, quite often, must be done around the same time, which can be overwhelming at times. The most enjoyable part of the job is communicating with new customers everyday and also with the staff. It is a great atmosphere at Denny's and I enjoy working with all of my co-workers.
