I worked at Darden full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Great for college students, supportive of employees/flexible, opportunities to move up if desired, good attitudes and ethics are modeled and promoted by supervisors

Cons

Working with the public can be difficult at times, lowest paying positions work very hard for their income

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Continue to model the "best of the best/Hospitaliano" attitudes of Diamond Awarded stores.

    I have been working at Darden full-time (more than an year)

    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.
