    Termination over back door policy

    Former Employee - Manager
    Former Employee - Manager

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

    Pros

    Health benefits, 401K benefits, life insurance

    Cons

    Managers are automatically fired if they leave back door open. But if the offense wasn't caught on camera they can't prove who did it. The wrong manager was fired in this case.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's a shame to have these policies without having any way to prove guilt or innocence. Unfortunately they've lost some great employees this way. They've also ruined people's professional reputation by wrongly terminating them over this.

    I worked at Darden full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    You can bulk up for sumo wrestling tornements in justweeks

    Cons

    Management team of brain washed automatons, Guests are the representation the dark side of EVERY culture. the food is awful, soup and salad is their only life line. The first lady complimented them for creating healthier children options, the kids cup is still the same size its just stouter (and refillable) and the food portions are larger.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    shut it all down, sell the buildings, cash out all the stock, and donate the money to Detroit or something more helpful then making the country fat index increase
