    I worked at Darden part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Day One Health coverage. Weekly pay. 50% off meals when you work. 15% off when you visit the restaurant or one of the sister chains. Comprehensive training.

    Cons

    Minimum consistency with set scheduling. Other than that no major problems

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the progressive training.
