It was a very fun place to work
Servers (Former Employee), Selinsgrove, PAApril 10, 2014
Pros: 40+ hours a week
Cons: working night shift
I would go to work and through myself into the rotation for tables. I learned everything it takes to be a server here at Denny's. Management was amazing. They made everything fun and got issues resolved quickly. The hardest part of the day would be if I was the only server and we got a big group of people. The best part of my day at Denny's were my – more... customers! The co-workers helped each other so well, we were a great team. – less

Great job security as long as not doing anything you're not supposed to.
Server (Current Employee), Hollywood, FLApril 6, 2014
Pros: great discount on food, flexible hours, and a homey family feeling with those you get close too.
Cons: greedy servers, micromanaging, young kids who don't tip
I feel the food&hospitality industry is underrated. While some people may say that that serving isn't a real job and that you should aspire for more(which you should), you can actually get paid pretty well. some nights i walk out of there with $150.00+. you can make more money than people with long term careers by simply ensuring your guest has a great – more... time, its pretty fun most times actually. This company is decent to work for because there's not really a shortage on hours because its a 24/7 diner and you build a family with your coworkers. You alos get 25-50% off of meals and free drinks. – less

enjoyable environment and great customer servie
Server/Cashier (Former Employee), Bloomington, ILMarch 13, 2014
Pros: great co workers, several hours and very enjoyable atmosphere
Cons: some slow days, stressful at time
everyday i walked into that place everyone always had a smile their faces. i went straight to figuring out what tables i had and whenever i was asked to take extra tabkes i handled it very well. there were alwaysw coworkers oiffering to help whenever needed. i took on hosting almost everyday day which includes greeting customers and showing them that – more... your hqappy to be there. i learned so much while i was there. i learned all the items on the menu and that heled working back in the kitchen everyonce in awhile to learn all the ingri\diences. so i could easiely exlain to customers the food bettter. i learned to multitask very quickly with that busy of a restraunt you have to keep up. i was always was comlimented so that bousted my confidence and made me work alot harder. i learned also how well the group i worked with could work together so easiely. the managerment wss alwayw there to help and any questions were always answered. he would talk about picking up hours and schedule changes at any time directing to you face. there really wasnt anything hard about that job but if i had to point out anything it maybe the there would moments i could stop and take a breathe. but that comes with a busy restraunt for anyone. the most enjoyable oart was you had complete freedom cause the managers trusted we would complete all our tasks. they were very leniant and if you had any concerns they would be polite and confront the problem face to face instead of putting it off. most helpful and enjoyable id ever had.also i want to add meeting and getting to know the customers really raised my spirits :) – less

SERVER (Former Employee), dinwiddee , VAMarch 11, 2014
Pros: free meals and meet new people
Cons: no health insurance
The days are typical the same every day and I really learned a lot by managers who want you to go some where with the company. The hardest part is the company has no insurance.

Waitress/Cashier/Host (Former Employee), Gun Barrel CityMarch 10, 2014
Pros: half off on food
Cons: no benefits, no room to advance
I waited on tables, would chat with guests, keeping them both entertained and taken care of. I would keep all of my duties taken care of leaving the place a clean environment. On weekends I would handle the cash register, and even when it was really busy I would manage to keep my register neat, organized and counted.

Server (Former Employee), Menomonie, WIMarch 10, 2014
Pros: meeting people.
Cons: having to drink to get hours.
I enjoyed working with public. Cooking staff struggled a lot which was hard to keep customers happy. Management seem to enjoy the drinking with younger associates which effected hour. I have a family and not time to go drink to keep my job.
I enjoy working with the public and meeting different people.

the management was truly lacking in some sort of organization and discipline. i found it hard to work there due to always being sexually harassed. its just not a very thought out restaurant.
