Pros

Excellent management, great team members, flexible hours, enjoyable work atmosphere, excellent food

some lazy employees, people are able to get away with not doing anything and are not reprimanded for it. Kitchen staff refuses to work hard at times because egos are too big.

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

    Pros

    good training, friendly environment, great discounts internally and with other companies, varied benefits available to those with various levels of employment

    Cons

    cater to rude guests over supporting employees at times, cost-saving measures have affected some quality of product, lack of opportunities to advance internally/look to hire externally for management

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find ways to keep existing guests while attracting new ones that don't sacrifice quality or cater to a class of guest that borders on abusive or disrespectful to employees.

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

    Pros

    Offers great benifits and flexibility with schedule. With 401K match, dental, vision and health benefits while in school I couldn't have asked for a better opportunity.

    Cons

    Depending on location and management team your working for is depending on how flexible they are with your schedule and also how much you feel like your appreciated at the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees
