Hostess and Expedite (Former Employee) – Belleville, ON – 31 July 2017
A typical day at work is really busy. I've learned many things such as greeting and seating customers. Many employees working at once. Teamwork based culture. The hardest part of the job is dealing with unexpected maintenance issues or failures.The most enjoyable part of the job is interacting with new people.
RESTAURANT MANAGER (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 18 October 2016
Training provided and growth if you work to your full potential. Customer service is taken serious here and customer service needs to be an A plus as our customers are our number one at Denny's
I appreciated how clean this work place was and how standards were followed and enforced. All about team work here. Also loved my boss here she was funny but serious when it came to work. She has a great vibe for working with people
Server (Former Employee) – Terrace, BC – 13 September 2016
it is a great job but one of the owners is frustrating and confusing with low communication skills low pay high expectations and a boss that spends more time talking then working and blames workers for everything that goes wrong
Restaurant Manager (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 3 September 2016
The best American chain restaurant you can work for in regards to work ethics, concept and benefits made available for the employees. Great training exposure before you can get on board. Simply outstanding Company.
Host/Server (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 10 August 2016
Working at Denny's was pretty entertaining, I got along with almost everyone and the managers were all pretty nice people. There was always something to do at work and most of the time it was fun because you got to work with friends. Being there helped me learn how to better deal with people in general.
You gain a certain amount of understanding and compassion in working a customer service job, and most people will not understand unless they themselves have had a job in the field. You start to understand why you have to be patient from time to time, and you will start to put yourself in the other persons shoes.
All in all I believe that working at Denny's made me a better person in the end.
Good Co-Workers and Food Discounts!
Some customers will try to tear you down, if you are too slow etc.
Cook (Former Employee) – Fort McMurray, AB – 8 July 2016
Well a typical day at work was making sure all my stations are clean and restocked before my shift. I also learned lots in a couple months of training and the hardest part of my job was keeping up with the orders when there was only me and one other cook in the kitchen.
it was a great experience to work in the fast food chain i learned a lot and hope i can use some of those skills
Busboy (Former Employee) – Okotoks, AB – 14 June 2016
although i learned a lot working in the fast food chain taught me something no matter how hard you work you do it to prove to yourself not to anyone above or below you, a lot of your hard work will go un-noticed.
free lunches and drinks
not everyone pulls their own weight and sometimes you have to pick up what they left.
Server/Waitress (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 10 June 2016
Working at Denny's was a very exciting experience because I would meet a lot of different people and serve them their breakfast, lunch or dinner whenever they liked. It is a 24/hour diner and I enjoyed that the most. I got to use my customer service skills while also handling food serving and drinks as well as taking cash, visa or debit transactions. It was a very fast paced Job that I learned a lot from.
Certified Server/Hostess (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 1 June 2016
start your day by checking if there are new additions to the menu or new standards that have been in placed. Shift exchange check over the previous server/host side work make sure everything is completed before they leave. Management gets switched around very often don't get too comfortable/close kinda pointless you will get some that are very nice and laid back and some that are very strict. Continuously changing things around in the restaurant to how they like it. Lots of drama between the servers and making sure everyone completed their job before they left./ come in with a positive vibe and you shall leave with one.
50% off lunch and 20% off come in on free time
no consistent day off nor are your hours consistent
