Pros

working for Darden is a good experience to add to a resume as it is a respected company within the hospitality industry

Cons

unfortunantly it would seem the hours are very irregular, no fairness in amount of hours shared between staff, could be there for 2 hours and sent home or 12 hours without a break.

Advice to Management

i think if you stopped giving shifts to those who already have another job (and have stressed over and over again that they can not work certain days and hours) and you gave shifts to the members of staff who actually want to work 40hrs a week, rather than just 16hr a week, you may retain the more committed staff, instead of them having to leave to support themselves. unfairness in hours scheduled should really be a concern for retaining your staff.
