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

    Pros

    You get fairly alright tips.
    You work..... A LOT (not sure if you consider that a pro or con)
    You meet some cool people

    Cons

    Never full time, don't even consider it, they will not put you full time.
    No competitive wages, its minimum wage where you work. In California, its $8.00 an hour for Servers... NO EXCEPTIONS.
    They will work you till death. They will schedule you 6 days a week (unless you have different availability) and they will make you work till the very last minute before you violate.... up to 6 hours.
    You will and I repeat WILL get stressed out. Loved it, but the hours were not worth it neither was the pay. You'll get good tips but then you won't.
    Everything you do is recorded and they don't show any mercy on employees. You mess up... its a write up!

    A LOT OF DRAMA!!!! It's high school all over again...but worse!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get your crap together and just be managers instead of favoring one another!

    Disapproves of CEO
