Current Employee - Line Cook in Morgantown, WV
Current Employee - Line Cook in Morgantown, WV

I have been working at Darden part-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Flexible hours, allowed 2 free sides while working, and free drinks

Cons

Training is almost nonexistent. I let all new cooks borrow my training book due to the failure of management to give the proper training materials and training curriculum. Extremely unprofessional work environment.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I could write a book about this topic, but i prefer not to be looked at as crazy.

    Pros

    Good benefits if your willing to pay for them, Flexible scheduling around another job or school. ability to advance.

    at times strict policies and procedures. Corporate will always try and screw you over to save a buck, so know your rights and laws and stay ontop of paperwork.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hourly employee's are the workforce that help make the company money, maybe taking a little better care of them will help out the company in the long run then pinching pennies.
