Server (Former Employee), Calgary, AB – July 19, 2013
This was my first full time job and I loved it, however towards the end of my seventh year we had different management and things changed drastically. People changed and the overall feeling in the restaurant changed, there was a lot of stress and the feeling of not being appreciated. I toughed it out along with a bunch of other people some were not – more... so patient and left. After two more years I had to make the tough decision to leave it was just too stressful and nothing was changing for the better. I do remember a lot of fun Staff Christmas parties, picnics and such events, I met a lot of great people during my time with Dennys. – less
Dennys was very good to me and the family for a very long time but it was just time for a change.

Denny's is a wonderful place to work with many wonderful people that work there. Working at Denny's is defiantly not a walk through a park, it takes hard work and a lot of patience. You do everything you can to make the customer happy and that is not always easy. The best part of my job is seeing the satisfaction on people's faces when they leave, knowing – more... you had part of making that customers experience there a great one. – less
Service Assistant (Current Employee), Taylor, MI – August 19, 2014
Pros: some pros about my job is that you get 50% off the food you order
A typical day at work is i clock in then i make sure that everything is stocked up and grab all the dishes.then you start to clean all the dishes that the last dish washer left. then you make sure there's enough ice for the servants, take all the dishes an put them where they supposed to do. one thing my job taught me is how to work hard and to use – more... my energy right. some managers are different a couple of them help us do things if we need help some just tell us what they need and be done with us. My co-workers are sometimes nice but when there in a bad mood they take it out on you, and when they ask you to do something they want it done now. the hardest part of my job is keeping your energy because doing everything be making your body sore. – less
Host (Former Employee), Clearbrook, Virginia – June 21, 2014
Pros: the people
Cons: host shifts made deliberately too short to qualify for a break, no free meals, management expects new workers to be self-reliant within first six days
Denny's sets a hectic pace for it's workers and the shifts, gratefully, pass by quickly as you're normally too busy trying to keep up to think about the clock much. Management was always great about helping out when things were truly overwhelming and never reprimanded you in front of your coworkers. The hardest part of the job was definitely the pace. – more... There was hardly enough time to breathe. I loved working so closely with people, though. Seeing someone who had just had a really enjoyable meal with lots of laughs made me happy - especially knowing that I had a part in doing it. – less
