    I worked at Darden part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Very flexible scheduling, plenty of shifts to choose, and going home with cash. Darden is willing to cross-train employees in serving, hosting, bartending, and to-go positions.

    Cons

    There seemed to be no room for career advancement, unless one is willing to drive a great distance for training and relocate to manage a new restaurant. The turnover rate is high. Weekend days can be challenging due to hung-over servers not being at the top of their game.
