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 – more... 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. – less

General Manager (Former Employee), Honolulu, HIJuly 15, 2014
Pros: good money and insurance, advancement was deffenite in the corp denny's
Cons: louisville franchise, wasnt doing so well at the time
24 hour restaurant in Honolulu Hi, making sure staff was on for all stations, it was the third busiest Denny's in the world at the time in a tourist area, so staffing, food, ordering were a must, I did schedules P&L's everything, also had free hand to get entertainment for waiting customers and trying out new things like mimosas at sunrise. I learned – more... how to market for the tourist, and our store won most profitable for the area, best food cost, best labor, and employee retention we won all the contest from Sunkist to Base ball to pie sales, My managers were fantastic. I started out at that store as a service manager, and three months later General Manager the hardest part of the day was knowing that I could be there 24hrs but that only really happened rarely, The most enjoyable part was every thing from the view to the staff and customers. But my husband had an opportunity to go back to the main land, so I transferred to Louisville franchise, It wasn't doing very well, and got bought out after I arrived there, and was in turmoil that particular store was closed right after I left. – less
