    I worked at Perkins Restaurant and Bakery full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Flexible shifts, higher pay, The People, The Food, French Silk Pie, Chicken Tender Melt, Excuse to get out of holidays with relatives...

    Cons

    The pay, the hours, the people, holiday work, Christmas away from home, recent bankruptcy leaves the management unsteady.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let a bigger company with some assets purchase this "Once Great" restaurant company so there can once again be stability in the ranks. No body willing to take any bullets because everyone's job is at risk...

    Pros

    As a server, you make great money and see lots of different kind of people. The staff that you work with varies as turnover in restaurants is typically high.

    Cons

    Long hours often with random breaks as you take them to match business flow. As with all customer service jobs, occasionally have to deal with people who think you are beneath them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take care of those who take care of your customers. It goes a long way towards keeping good staff.

    I have been working at Perkins Restaurant and Bakery (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The hours were very flexible and can make quite a considerable amount off of regulars and on the weekend mornings.

    Cons

    The customer is always right so no matter what you say or do, if the customer says you are wrong you ARE wrong and that is that.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the employees sometimes they may know how to handle a certain situation because they have delt with a similar one like that before

    I worked at Perkins Restaurant and Bakery full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    The employees, quick advancement opportunities, benefits

    Cons

    Wage freezes, investors/ corporate is ran by suits behind a desk, bankrupt. Fired me after 11 years, on the phone, for an HR issue, which I made the claim on and took them 3 weeks to investigate. My only witness happened to be on vacation out of country that week.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you make too much money for the dwindling guest counts, starting looking for employment elsewhere or they will fire you for any little thing to bring in someone else who won't drive up the labor percent.
