I have been working at Darden part-time for less than a year

Pros

Management is easy going. Learn mostly by trial and error. Relatively easy work as long as you keep track of everything, and pay can me good on most days.

Cons

Communication can be disorganized at times. Employees that bring personal problems to work. Having to find management for all approvals.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep it up

    Pros

    Great company. Compensation & Benefits are really good. upper management is really good.

    Cons

    60 + hour a week. Work/ life is horrible. the restaurant industry is still in the stone age. When it comes to this. It is getting harder and harder to get and keep qualified managers at 60 + hours a week.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Mandatory no more than 50 hours a week. you will keep your manager a lot longer.
