Fun, plenty of business, and lots of great food
Food Server (Former Employee), Anaheim, CAOctober 16, 2014
This job was flexsible because it was open 24 hours, 365 days a year. And to be honest, for myself when it came to custody and visitation of my kids with the whole family law arena, I always worked the holidays, so that means Dad had the kids every single holiday and birthdays so no arguments about who's turn it is, he was able to spend every single – more... one with his kids and I took the day after! You saved me Denny's, Thank You – less

Very busy and crazy, but fun.
Late-Night Floor Manager (Former Employee), Clarksburg, WVOctober 15, 2014
Pros: meeting wonderful people
Cons: sometime no breaks
Shift was 10 pm - 6 am. Days off were never in a row and weekends were always worked. I was in charge of all other employees and all customers. Along with having my own section I would have to take care of any problems that took place in the restaurant. I loved my customers and got along with all the employees. Working at the third busiest Denny's on – more... the east cost while only working midnights gave me the ability to deal with anyone at any time. I loved how unpredictable my nights could be. Getting through the night with everyone happy and in one piece was my main goal. – less

Great place to work to get through college
Server (Former Employee), Redding, CAOctober 14, 2014
Pros: discounted lunches, and discounts when coming in off the clock.
Cons: air conditioning doesn't work half the time in the summer
Mostly everyone is great to work with, you can make friends at your job. Management is great. The General Manager cares about you and will do what it takes to work around your schedule if going to school. The hardest part of the job is maintaining customer satisfaction when you are stretched kind of thin among employees. Overall it is a great place – more... to work. – less

Bad Management
current employee (Current Employee), Pasadena, CAOctober 13, 2014
this location (pasadena,ca) has bad management,poor training,and unstable work scheduling.they pretty much want you to be on call if somebody else calls in sick on your day off.and if you cant or dont want to go in on your day off,they begin to give you less working hours.

decent pay but no benifits
Waitress (Current Employee), North East, MDOctober 12, 2014
Pros: decient money, flexible hours
Cons: no benifits, lack of good mangment
Denny's was flexible with my hours and shifts when I was part time at Cecil college. There are also opportunities for you to move up in position based on performance. I have seen many people move from dishwashers to cooks or waitresses to managers. Despite these good attributes, there are very few benefits and inconsistent pay for waitresses.
