Good experience overall, but I wouldn't want to stay forever.

Server Assistant (Current Employee)
Cincinnati, OH

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

ProsVery flexible scheduling, good money depending on location/customer traffic.

ConsOnly cares about numbers, nothing personal about it from a corporate viewpoint. Doesn't matter what's best for the employees, and managers always have to take the customer's side.

Advice to Senior ManagementShow more interest in the well-being and happiness of the employees rather than focusing only on percentages.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
