Cash/Host (Former Employee) – Reston, VA – April 17, 2018
I liked working at Henny Penny for the most part. There were certain aspects where there was room for improvement. The Hardest part of the job was picking up the slack for other members because we were under staffed a lot.

a typical day is laid back. I learned one good thing for henny penny which was tig welding and that's about it. Management is never around when needed you can never find them you always have to call them there is a very big gap in communication from supervisor to employee. When dealing with a problem or confrontation they never take anyone's idea into consideration THEY are always right. Hardest part of my job is to try and communicate with my supervisor.Most enjoyable part is when 310 hits and you clock out to go home. Ive been there almost a year and i really dont have much good to say about this place its always hard to get something done when you are trying to track down a supervisor to get the parts you need.
bad pay, low raises, what you to do 70 hours of work in a 40 hour week
henny penny expects the most out of the employees for the minimal wage that they offer. Which is not enough for what you do as a worker there. The company would be better if they payed more per hour and cut the costs of the extras that are offered that don't include insurance, medical, dental, vision, 401K are the necesities.

I have worked off and on for Henny Penny for 6 years , and I always would recommend working for them I always had fun while I was working you never no what type of customer would come in and I loved meeting new ones every day I worked.
Stressful work environment thats all about customer service and working as a team. All promotions are done from within the company.
Manager (Current Employee) – Old Saybrook, CT – September 5, 2017
Work hard and pay attention to the customers needs. Be ready to work days and nights and cover for lots of call outs. I have put in five years with this company and have gotten to the highest level I can achieve.
Cahier (Current Employee) – Groton, CT – March 24, 2017
Henny Penny is a good company to work for, the hardest part of this job is trying to help a upset customer with either a simple fix or sadly it not being able to help depending on the problem. The management could be better with helping their employees, and handling situations that arise between them.
Pleasurable atmosphere for a work space environment
Cashier/Customer Service (Current Employee) – Monroe, CT – November 7, 2016
Very friendly atmosphere. Customers and coworkers very friendly and easy to get along. Always something to do. On occasion there would be downtime which was also fine because it gave us a decent amount of time for a break.
Short Breaks whenever it was slow
Sometimes will work later than usual due to the following shift being tardy
