Working at Denny's
Host (Former Employee), Clearbrook, VirginiaJune 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

Server (Former Employee), Springfield, ILJune 12, 2014
Pros: amazing friends
Cons: working back to back shifts.
Serving customers is your number one priority. Always double check the items they have ordered and when the customer was upset that was one of the hardest parts of the job.

During this job i have learned to work well with others. I have also become very proficient in multi-tasking. The hardest part of my job is keeping up with the constant changes in policy. The most enjoyable part of my job is meeting new people and giving customers excellent service.

Waiter/Server (Former Employee), Forest Hill, TXMay 6, 2014
Pros: i had sundays &mondays off.
Cons: working with people that was slow & didnt want to do thier job.
mostly I work the floor by myself except on Friday & Saturday. the management would leave me to do my job & would always get praise from customers about my work performance. the hardest part of the job would be making sure that little kids wont be stealing my tips off of the table. I enjoyed making my customers laugh & putting a smile on their face.

Dennys Management
Assistant Manager (Current Employee), Arlington,TXApril 29, 2014
Pros: free lunch
Cons: no healthcare
Working at Dennys has been great thus far. I started off as a server and within a few short months I received my first promotion to Assistant Manager. The hardest thing about my job are the guests. Making everyone happy is a very difficult thing to do. I believe everyone should be able to work a "graveyard" shift at least once in their lifetime so they – more... can see and handle all different kinds of situations that occur while at work.
The most enjoyable part of my job is making the guests happy! As I previously stated making everyone happy is a hard task, however, you always have more people happy versus unhappy; the happy people make the day go by very smooth. – less

It is a good with some problems.
Waitress/Hostess (Current Employee), Chico, CAApril 26, 2014
Pros: half price lunches and associates discount
Cons: not alot of hours given
On a good day I will come to work and when I clock on there is much cleaning to do to make the restaurant look presentable. The management does not know their job description and focuses on things that are not as important and not on the crucial points. My co-workers are mostly good, some do not do their work and get away with it. The hardest part of – more... the job would have to be not getting irritated at management for not doing their job properly. The best part of the job is putting on a smile and working with the customers to ensure their dining experience is outstanding. – less
