Pros

I work at Seasons 52 which is a newer brand under the Darden Corp which boasts a sentiment about it being "the last serving job you will ever have", and, although it is an easy statement to mock due to its bold fallibility, I would say it is a pretty accurate statement. Darden has a tried, tested and true platform for providing a high level of customer service to every customer while offering a wealth of knowledge for those looking to gain experience and work their way up through management.

Cons

Like any company, there is a fair share of politics. However, if you have integrity, a strong work ethic and grasp the idea of personal accountability, this company is a good place to plant your feet in the hospitality market.

Advice to Management

Spend some money on OUTSIDE training & development for management. There are WIDE gaps in management training when everyone in the company is trained on the same things. It would serve the company well to get fresh perspectives on how to manage teams more effectively and increasing the productivity in the workplace.

    Pros

    great benefits, flexible scheduling, and a family like environment. They are willing to promote within.

    Cons

    Tip out was more than usual. There wasn't much tolerance for mistakes

    Advice to Management

    most of the managers have a great attitude, keep it up! For the others, maybe you should find a job that doesn't deal with people.
