What I learned from Denny's

During my employment with Denny's I was able to get a first hand experience with customer service. I was trained to be a server along with being a cashier and hostess.

I love Working for the Company
Server (Former Employee), Santa Rosa, CASeptember 30, 2014
Pros: learning patience, and humility
Cons: there are some people who tend to get away with things they shouldn't
I enjoyed helping people. I have spent 13 years working for Dennys off and on. I have met some great people and some not so great people. The job has taught me humility and patience towards myself, guests, and coworkers. I enjoyed the busy pace and taking care of others.

Cheap restaurant family oriented.
Chef (Former Employee), Orem, UTSeptember 29, 2014
I worked graveyard. A lot of college kids, management helped. The hardest part of my job would be getting a bar rush at three am and not having anyone to help me.

Sales (Former Employee), houston txSeptember 29, 2014
A typical day at dennys would be me coming in counting the register, check everything is nice and neat for my shift if not make the employees before me do the job right or they will stay late, drink my coffee, and clock in.
Ive learned that in order for you to be recognized you gotta earn it and work hard for it.
Managment basically was me running the – more... store at times but others are very good at running the store.
Co-workers are my limit relationship nothing else.
The hardest part of my job would be running the store while serving tables making money and be attentive of the employees.
The most enjoyable part of the job would be satisfying my customers and put a smileon them. – less

Server (Former Employee), Norcross, GASeptember 28, 2014
There is no place to grow in the company other that becoming a on-call replacement manager. Sometimes unorganized and chaotic.

Worst job ive had.

Pros: employ meal

Loved the work itself but the people there are only worried about themselves. And if your GM doesnt like you he will cut you down to 1 day a week til you quit.

Not a good choice for a job
General Manager for Family Restaurant (Former Employee), Center Valley, PASeptember 24, 2014
The owner did not know anything about running a restaurant and it got too costly for him, he could not pay the bills. As for my employees, they had great respect for me and understood why I left.
The place went out of business 6 months later
