Pros

Flexible hours
Easy money
Good Pay
Team work

Been working here over 2 years. Very flexible with your schedule, was able to go to school and work another job while here, though, I'm not sure they'll be that flexible with everybody. Only downfall was the management didn't give you breaks, you'd be working anywhere from 6-12 hours, and more then half a time without a given break to sit down or eat unless you begged. But, toughen up ,that's most restaurants.

Cons

Long hours
No breaks
Management is very busy, and something not understanding.
Need management or upper to fix every small thing on a check.
Soup and Salad, running back and forth with large trays, very busy.

    Pros

    I believe one of the many great perks of this whole process was the interview process with the different level managers. At least for me it let see a glance of not only one, but several of the excellent people that I would be learning and get lead from.

    Cons

    There aren't many downsides to working for Darden in itself. One of the key things that seems to get to me more than anything is the other employees that don't take pride in their job.

    Advice to Management

    If employees are given a chance to improve, and have not shown any signs of improvement in the allotted time given. Then I would believe that it would be time for them to be fired, if not moved to another position.
