A different view.
Hostess and Custodian (Former Employee), Grand Island, NEJanuary 5, 2015
You will have a lot of different experiences dealing with every customer. You typically clean a lot when you are busy and when you are not. Your coworkers are pretty decent, they help you out a lot.

Enjoyed working in the fast paced envriornment
Hostess (Former Employee), Emeryville, CAJanuary 4, 2015
The hardest part about this job was keeping people calm, but I have a way of listening to people and understanding exactly what it is they need and/or want. I really loved working nights and some times over night on the weekends at this establishment, there was never a dull moment. I always had something to do and my shifts never seemed as long as they actually were because I was enjoying myself.

Fun place to work.
Waitress/Hostess (Former Employee), Forest City, NCJanuary 4, 2015
Cons: we could take short breaks as long as there were no customers
Every day was pretty much like the day before. I had never waited tables or been a hostess nor worked in a restaurant kitchen. For the most part i liked all the managers and supervisors. The big problem was one supervisor did not know what the other had said or done. They would forget to go and write schedule changes down.

Hospitable and cheery work place
Hostess/Server (Current Employee), Cortland, NYJanuary 1, 2015
Pros: 50% off of food on the clock, 30 minute breaks, and discount for regular eating.
Cons: no healthcare insurance, no special holiday pay, or 401k etc.
A typical day at work consists of cashing customers out, taking customers orders, and serving the customers. I learned how to retain a large amount of information of menu items and P.O.S. systems. Management is still working to it's full potential. Co-workers are okay; the hardest part of the job is dealing with customers and smiling even if you don't feel like it. On the other hand; the most enjoyable part of the job is the customers. Just depends on what type of customers.

Exciting place to work
District Manager (Former Employee), Long Beach, CADecember 31, 2014
At Denny’s you work with a team of people that are always excited to be here, so no picking up other peoples slack. The company takes excellent care of its people when it comes to pay and treating you well. Denny’s is a very solid company as well and will be around for a long time. The best part of Denny’s is the people, once you are past the training stage you look around and realize that every person in the company is not only hard working and caring, but also in general just great people to spend your time with. At Denny’s, challenging tasks are taken on by teams like a game because they all have fun doing it and a sense of group pride when it is over.

Server (Former Employee), Zanesville, OHDecember 30, 2014
typical work day consisted of greeting customers, taking customer food orders, and delivery customer service. I learned customer service techniques, Management was always present and helpful. My coworkers were all people I went to high school with. Hardest part of the job was the shift 11 -7 a.m. Most enjoyable part was being around good people.
