    I have been working at Red Lobster part-time

    Pros

    • I absolutely love (the majority) of my co-workers. Many are easy to get along with and as a first job, this has been a great first experience - getting me accustomed to clientele, the work place, and more.
    • We get paid week by week which is nice; as long as you can practice self control and save up!
    • I've seen various complaints about management on this site but personally, I have no complaints at all! My managers are all incredibly sweet and understanding. They defend their employees when necessary, which is something I've never witnessed before and provide constructive criticism for the most part rather than just barking at their employees.

    Cons

    • The customers can sometimes be a big issue. For the most part, I've been lucky to enough to work in a location that is primarily filled with happy and enjoyable clients but of course there are the occasional cranky folks that make my job 10x harder. Rude, snappy, etc. I've been whistled at, snapped at (literally and figuratively), yelled at by people who come in and can't get a table right away, so on and so forth and all the while you have to put on your best face and not let anything show. Which is natural of any job in the restaurant business, but it is something that should be bore in mind when thinking about applying here.
    • Busy. Days. Whenever we get busy, it turns into complete chaos. Servers get nasty, the kitchen staff practically goes completely silent to avoid saying anything negative, things fall, clients are unhappy with waits, and you simply have to be able to deal with stress. If you can not handle stress, this would perhaps not be the best job for you. (I used to not be but this job has certainly made me grow in this regard which I'm frankly thankful for.)
    • Having started off as an SA, I literally never take any of them for granite. SA's are literally the bottom of the totem pole and get worked unbelievably so for the worst pay in the restaurant. Though you do have to start somewhere - and typically it is with this position - it is awful. Several times I have worked double shifts as an SA and not even made minimum wage per hour. (Though it should also be noted that Red Lobster does compensate for this if you don't make at least minimum wage via tip share - and, yes, you get paid with tips as a server assistant.) On busy days you can make more than minimum wage. It really just all depends on how generously customers tip that day. Add to that, when the restaurant is busy and you're SAing, if you even dare take a breather to get water, chances are you'll get snapped at by an angry server for not having cleaned off their table yet... Even if the customer has been gone for three minutes.
