Server (Current Employee), Campbell, Ca – December 18, 2014
Pros: meet new people, great food
Cons: no benefits, no extra pay on holidays
a productive workplace in which i learn a lot about customer service and sales. An everyday learning job. The best thing that i got learn at denny's is how to treat people with respect and how to be patience. Co-workers are amazing i like to work with different people and be a team work at all times. The most enjoyable thing at denny's is that you deal – more... with different people from different cultures. Although, the hardest part in the job is that you have to be patience and not stress because you stress your co-workers and customers as well, sometimes. – less
Putting on a smile and delivering excellent customer service
Server (Former Employee), Oceanside, CA – December 18, 2014
Pros: 50% meals
Cons: bar rushes
Start by refilling things that were in need. I had lots of fun with my customers at denny's. It was usually the same people that would come in and request me, because of my awesome customer service. My co workers were very nice we all help one another out. Bar rushes were sometimes pretty difficult, but I handled them.
Head Server/ Multi-certified (Former Employee), Volusia county area, FL – December 18, 2014
Pros: tons of money potetial
Cons: no benefits for under management
Most of my best memories and people I worked with came from Denny's. Many fellow co workers I am still friends with after all this time. Friendly environment and fair in wages. The lack of benefits is the only reason I left the company. Having a family means the need for insurance.
Line Cook (Former Employee), Manhattan, NY – December 18, 2014
A typical day at Denny's starts off smoothly then the pace is quicken during lunch hours. I've learned new recipes that I've used at home and how to use their cooking equipment. Management is pretty decent, friendly yet straight forward. Co-workers were cool and fun to work with, the chemistry helped keep the kitchen running smoothly. The hardest part – more... about the job was keeping your pace and getting orders out when understaffed and busy. The most enjoyable part about the job was building new friendships with people. – less
Hostess/Server (Former Employee), Mechanicsburg, PA – December 17, 2014
The daily job changed from day to day but stayed the same all at the same time. You had your usual duties that any hostess would have, but then depending on who it is that is working that shift with you, depends on how much other work you may be doing at any point in time.
a very productive workplace can be alot when working alone

Server (Former Employee), Lathrop, CA – December 9, 2014
you serve tables and assist customers. If you work here you should be prepared to work graveyards for a long while, they only give morning/day shifts to favorites or people who have been there a long while. Patience is a much needed mind set when working at this establishment.
Manager, Customer Service (Former Employee), Tacoma, WA – December 9, 2014
Pros: guest interaction
Cons: some long shifts
Check the schedules to see who was working and what was their on time/off time. Check with the manager that was getting off shift to see what issues needed to be watched. I learned time management. As a part of the management team I felt we did a great job. We as a team all did our best to make the work day go smooth and helped each other. The hardest – more... part of the job was the late night shift and controlling labor cost. The most enjoyable part was the guest that we would interact with on a daily bases. – less

I worked with a lot of different people as people came and left the job a lot. The hardest part of the job was being understaffed and working during a rush. The most enjoyable part of the job was during every season we had a new – more... food special and we got to sample them. – less
