I have been working at Darden part-time
Team work, great tips, loyal customers, split tips. Management is pretty awesome for the most part.
It can be frustrating when a server is not putting forth team effort (chit-chatting or not picking up an even amount of tables) yet still receives the same amount of tips due to tip sharing. Also during checkout if you end up having more money then what shows in the system, the company will take it away and if you are under, you owe them- not fair especially when the tips were earned but miscounted.
Advice to Management
Needs to be stricter on the "slackers" instead of playing "favorites." But otherwise, great company to work for when hard working/kind people are hired.
