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

Pros

Free sides, 50% off meals on days you work and weekly pay

Cons

No breaks after sometimes 10 hour shifts
Compared to the amount of work you do you'll never make the money you feel you deserve especially compared to servers

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Appreciate your Server Assistants and the amount of work they do. They deal with angry servers and guests on a daily basis. They bust their butts to maintain a clean dining room and happy guests.

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

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Only 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 ManagementAdvice

    Show more interest in the well-being and happiness of the employees rather than focusing only on percentages.

    Pros

    Clean, organized. The restaurant runs smooth. Multiple managers to work with. Popular when compared to other restaurants.

    Cons

    Act like their care for employee is genuine but profit and customer-no matter if they are in the wrong or not-is always right.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stick up for employee
