IHOP was a great company to work for. I worked at a franchise property and the owners were incredible. Although, at times, they could be a bit condescending and intimidating, they were definitely great leaders. There were times where they cut corners trying to save some money that made it difficult as a server and as a manager to meet their standards/expectations for customer service, but other than that it was worth every minute. The hustle for tips is absolutely viable, especially if you put in effort and genuinely care for people's happiness or not. I was given tools to succeed at my property; I started as a host and night server and eventually became an assistant manager before departing for school. I have nothing but high praises for IHOP.
Great Company, Worth the Tips, Friendly Staff
