Former Employee - Server in Salina, KS
Former Employee - Server in Salina, KS

I worked at Darden full-time (less than an year)

Pros

The opportunity to experience what a hostile work environment is truly like and to appreciate the opportunities that have presented themselves after experiencing this form of discrimination. The few and far between genuine and honest guests and relationships that were made. Wrongfully terminated and sued for unemployment AND WON!

Cons

wage theft, harassment, bullying environment, low class no class management and diners with an "entitlement" type attitude. Management does not and will not stick up for their servers.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I won't waste precious airspace on the lowest form of human garbage that have been carelessly given any kind of "management" position. I now work the type of environment that if a guest mistreats or is a poor tipper, they will be asked by management to not return.

    Current Employee - Server in Schaumburg, IL

    I have been working at Darden full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I love my co workers and schedules are very flexible.

    Cons

    New trial policy of a suggested tip before tax printed on the guests check is reducing server tips by 20%. This means server salary's have dropped by 20%. If they value us they will remove it. Our competitors that put a suggested tip on the check calculate after tax and show 18%,20% and 22% values.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have all management staff take a 20% pay cut.
