Assistant Manager (Former Employee) – Myrtle Beach, SC – August 25, 2016
The hardest part of working for this business is that you really don't know what to expect from upper management. you'll get instructed to do a task. Get yelled at for doing the task as they instructed. Its a great place to work if you enjoy that kind of enviroment. I managed to do so for only 2 years.
The possibility of meeting new people
Turn over rate is really bad, and facilities are not well maintained

If you are looking for a part time job with flexible hours Shoney's is a good start. I've been there for 3 years as a server while being a full time college student. They work with my school schedule well. It's about what you would expect a serving job to be. You get paid $2.13 an hour call me benefits for next to nothing. Mostly older folks go to eat there and tips are hit or miss. All in all though it's an alright job. Just not one you want to be at for more than a few years.
Hostess/Waitress (Former Employee) – Dover, OH – August 17, 2016
When I started working there it was the first job I have ever had So yes i was nervous but the people their all made me feel welcomed and a part of them, They all were so great on helping me out on things i didn't know or didn't get down right away, I was the youngest one working there so They kinda looked at me as their little sister or daughter. Everyone their has great personalities, they don't look at you a certain way, they are loving and caring people. It was a great working environment and everyday I couldn't wait to go into work.

Shoney's being an independent owned restaurant makes it a good place to work. There are no two days the same, each day I encounter new challenges. Working with fellow co-workers is enjoyable, however, at times working staff that are not trained well can be the hardest part of the job. I enjoy fulfilling the guest needs and request to make their meal experience a pleasure.

Dishwasher (Former Employee) – Emporia, VA – May 23, 2016
Shoney's had to be the best job that have recieved so far.I was young (16-17)when I got there so this was also an experience for me as well.All in all it was great, but you know beeing young,I a made an irrational decision that I didnt want this job and it was not very wise. Now I have matured and realized that "if you don't work.You don't eat"
Nice place to work,overall good managers,and good team
Cook (Current Employee) – Crossville, TN – August 9, 2016
Busy every day, fast paced, always moving, love the work environment. Great management. Great teamwork. Food is great customer service is good. A typical day at shoneys is busy. Stressful situations come about but the team gets through them
A fast paced atmosphere where management and employees are trained in numerous areas. Co-workers are awesome. The typical day at work would be to ensure the buffet is quality controlled and customers are relaxed in a great atmosphere.
Assistant Manager (Former Employee) – Rock Hill, SC – August 15, 2016
Take care of the customers , employees and restaurant. I learned to deal with a lot of co-works. Managent was good. Hardest part was to make co-workers to understand that customers are first. The best part of the job was to see customers happy.
Area Supervisor (Former Employee) – Albuquerque, NM – March 7, 2016
I enjoyed my time while working at Shoney's. It was a great place for me to begin and advance my restaurant knowledge. Again, long hours were tuff at times but being able to help other members of management along with hourly employees become better employees was a great feeling.
Server/ Certified Trainer (Former Employee) – Laurel, MS – July 5, 2016
This was my first job out of high school. It taught me to work well with others and great customer service skills. I learned the importance of following protocol and ensuring that rules were being followed.
Server/cashier/host (Current Employee) – Abingdon, VA – April 5, 2016
Shoney's is not only my job it is my family the employees and management are close and we all work together, the most enjoyable part of my job is being able to meet and communicate with people I all walks of life.
Server (Former Employee) – Kingsport, TN – February 11, 2016
I liked working at Shoney's. I would make sure all orders I severed were correct and everything was clean. Served food and drinks to customers, made sure nobody ran out of their drink. Showed great customer service to all my customers. Always clean table floor chairs after each party left.
Making 2.10 a hr. plus tips just is not enough to live on.
SERVER (Former Employee) – Aiken, SC – April 7, 2016
You must have good customer service in order to have a productive day,no room for advancement within, some of your coworkers are team players where others just dont care. You have to make the best out of your day and not worry about what other think of you
Waitress (Former Employee) – South Boston, VA – May 9, 2016
This restaurant was a great work place with amazing co-workers. I was a waitress and I loved my job I was very good at it! They just couldn't manage the company like it was supposed to be managed so they had to shut it down.
