    Current Employee - Server/Host/to Go Specialist/Prep in Reynoldsburg, OH

    I have been working at Darden part-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Most of the managers are more than willing to work around schedules and have a "you help me, I'll help you" attitude, which is nice.

    Cons

    Raises only come every 6 months, and are rarely more than 10-15 cents. (It's nearly impossible to get the 25 cent raise more than a few times in years of employment...)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If there's an obvious weak link that can't be changed...get rid of it!
