    Managers are nice but hours are crazy.

    Pros

    Coworkers are the best part about the job and keep you going. They are also flexible with school schedules.

    Cons

    They don't stand up for their employees when the customers are clearly wrong. I understand the concept of the customer is always right but they take it too far sometimes.

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

    Pros

    Busy atmosphere, friendly staff, good food and generally upbeat and friendly guests

    Cons

    LONG training program that is redundant if you've ever worked in a restaurant before.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Tweak training program to not be so long. Took a month after my hire date to begin serving tables and making tips - too long!!
