    I worked at Darden


    Coworkers were the main reason you stay here at Darden (my case is Olive Garden). Pay varies from night to night, you could make $200 one Saturday night, then make only $40 the next. Half off of food during your shift is a bonus. Overall friendly, non-competitive work environment between co-workers.


    Incompetent management made working here difficult. Over my two year stay at my location, I had 9 different managers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work on new training videos & programs. Teach comprehensive product knowledge rather than rushing through each item.
