    I worked at Olive Garden Italian Restaurants full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Darden sets up a fantastic system to run their restaurants. The numbers at the end of the year say it all, this place is professional... at least on the books.

    Cons

    It's so easy to say everything that ever went wrong was the managers' fault... partially this is true, but I think too many of their managers feel this overwhelming pressure from above that causes unnecessary stress that in turn leaks all over their employees. Some of my most stressful years were in this restaurant because of that. I knew too many managers in my time there that lived in fear of what their regional or even sometimes general manager would say or do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your job is NOT easy, no matter what some of the employees say. That said, remember that they know almost nothing about what you go through with your management and above.
