I worked at Darden full-time (less than an year)

Pros

They offer medical benefits. Pretty flexible when it comes to schedule. Co-workers very friendly.

Cons

You pay an arm and a leg for the medical benefits. Management isn't the best. Managers often threaten employees by saying they will fire you, if you call out for even the most extreme reasons.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

There should be a better review of the management team at this very Olive Garden.

    Pros

    Management is professional and lets me do my job with minor micromanaging. As long as you keep to conduct everything goes fine. They are understanding when problems arise.

    Cons

    Only thing that sucks is the scheduling of too many servers to handle the 45 minute lunch rush where everybody is spread thin and make crap during lunches.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    none.
