Pros

Some good health insurance. Menu has diversity but going away from a steakhouse. Employees help one another. On your own here

Cons

No leadership. Managers in office or working on paperwork during peak hours. A VS T is bad it's our fault. Should be out with the guests to nullify problems. Can't find them

Advice to Management

A smaller menu. Too many choices equal mistakes. Caesar and app salads should be placed on the square plates. Looks great and mounded up you use less product. In a bowl it looks flat and use more. Creativity is left to someone else. Come up with some culinary contest that employees can do.

    Pros

    Easy to swap shifts, give up, pick up.

    Cons

    Everything changed when Darden bought out rare for Longhorn. Was once a good company with good values, I once was proud to work there.

    Advice to Management

    Stop lowering the quality of the food and charging higher prices!
