I have been working at Darden full-time

Pros

Fast easy way to make a living without a education especially if you are good at customer service. As well as moving up in the company.

Cons

Dealing with customer service. You can either do it or not. Horrible hours, work late nights and weekends. No holiday's off or pay.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

As the management staff you are the leaders of the restaurant. You must communicate with one another and lead the example to your staff.
