Pros

Great kick off training! Excellent mentors, rigorous program in Florida. Chance to bond with all entering managers from different concepts.

Cons

Once you get to your store, training is dependent upon,commitment, knowledge, and interest of the GM and other managers, very disappointing,

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Team work is key. Management needs to support each other and the staff.Reward dedication.

    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.
