Great Company to Work For

Busser (Former Employee)
Greenville, SC

ProsThey are a very well-run company. Every Manager I worked for was very professional and hard-working.

ConsThe three-table maximum at Olive Garden affected income during my time as a server.

Advice to Senior ManagementMy advice would be to enforce the rule that servers should clear the table as they go. This makes the job of the busser significantly more efficient.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
