no life while working
server (Former Employee), jackson miJuly 30, 2015
Pros: tips
Cons: no team work and rude managment
a typical day would be dealing with managers who sit on their phones and get mad when they have to help you work. Management curses at employees. some people can show up late but not everybody. management also sits around talking about other employees and how they do their job. they never hand out paychecks and get mad at you when you come on payday to pick up your check. stating that you cannot pick them up to after 4pm when banks close at 5.if you don't smoke you don't get a break. no one trains you right. a lot of the staff thinks they should wait for someone else to do their job. not a good place to work.

You are expected to do job of at least 3 people
Server (Former Employee), tempe,azJuly 27, 2015
Pros: free food and good tips
Cons: no breaks very high expectations
Typical day of work is being under staffed and being expected to cashout customers get their orders bus your tables and seat guest while also making any soups salads drinks or desserts
I learned how to manage time and stay efficient
Management sucks very unappreciative and dont help what so ever
Co workers are the best part of the job along with meeting lots of new people
Hardest part of job is how much that is expected of each person
Most enjoyable part is meeting new people from all over and the pay is great if you are friendly

Hostess/Cashier/Server (Former Employee), Ruther Glen, VAJuly 27, 2015
Pros: half off lunches
Cons: 30 minute breaks, no job security
set guest, take their orders, make them happy, keep an eye on their drinks to make sure they was full, make sure all food was hot and tasty, and cash out the guest. The employees was great, always got off in a timely manner, cheerful, and stress-free.

Very Productive Workplace
Denny's Restaurant (Former Employee), Gilbert, AZJuly 24, 2015
Pros: Great People, Hard Work
A normal day at work would include large groups of people who would come in and enjoy themselves on a regular basis. I learned that when working a job that was based on tips, you really have to come out of your shell and interact with people in order generate enough money to survive on. The management at my store was the best management anyone could ask for. Always helpful, always kind, and always – more... honest. I loved my co-workers because they understood how to work as a team, and how to support everyone; regardless of job or position. The hardest part of the job was getting little to no tips, because it was always accompanied by the feeling that i didn't do well. but the most enjoyable part was when i was recommended by someone, or when people would bring friends in to see me, just based on their previous experience. – less

i loved working here,raised my kids here
Server (Former Employee), Manteca, CAJuly 23, 2015
Pros: the love from my small town, knowing everyone that walked in
Cons: no insuance, no overtime and or lack of good management, time on paycheck was altered
I loved working for the customers at dennys as well as most of my co workers. Being a small town I pretty much knew everyone including all the young as well as the older patrons in my community . Management I hate to say wasn't as up to par as I ,being in the business for over 35 years wondered "where did they get this guy or girl from" as for a day on the job ...everyday was different, ether it was prom night or a Sunday morning with 35 or more soccer kids crashing through the doors. I loved every minute ...

Alot of drama gets started. There is tons of favoritism.
Server (Former Employee), Thomasville, NCJuly 22, 2015
I loved working there when I first started. As an employee I expected to be treated the same as everyone else and that was not the case. I worked 40+ hours most weeks and never got a day off hardly. I was never recognized for my dedication and hard work.

Friendly coworkers, but lacking proper management.
Trainer (Former Employee), Las Vegas, NVJuly 22, 2015
Pros: Daily interaction with people.
Cons: Struggle with management.
Work was fun. Daily interaction with a variety of interesting people giving you the chance to learn about different personality types. Daily interaction with new people helps you understand how to properly conduct yourself under different circumstances. I truly enjoyed working at Denny's although the company lacked proper management.

Unorganized and understaffed
Waitress/Cashier (Former Employee), Texas City, TXJuly 21, 2015
Pros: Visiting with your regular guest and tips
Cons: Rude customers, understaff, not long enough breaks
As for a waitress you come in see what section you are in and what area you will clean at the end of your shift. Seat and great customers, handle transactions, placed orders and serve the order. Hardest part of being a waitress is food not coming out on time, no help meaning understaff. Such as people quitting because of Denny's being so unorganized.

Pros: Meeting lots of people, with great tips and keeps you on your toes.
Cons: Sore feet ;)
I love the service industry because of its fast paced, people oriented work environment.Denny's is a great place to work if you can handle many tasks at once and don't break a sweat under high stress... For me.. I thrive under those conditions.

Productive workplace with awesome co-workers
Server (Former Employee), Conroe, TXJuly 19, 2015
Pros: Good money, good food
Cons: short breaks, managment not helpful
A normal day at Dennys would be busy in the am and slower after lunch. we were given specific jobs and duties to be performed before the end of our shifts. The morning management was not helpful, so we as servers had to perform our duties and some of others. Night management made our job fun. he enjoyed interacting with customers and servers. played great music. Hardest part of the job was dealing with managers that didn't care for the servers. Best part of the job was making a customer smile. no matter what kind of day they had, they could leave with a great experience and a smile.
