    I have been working at Darden part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Management is supportive of the servers--- Management gives the servers the benefit of the doubt when dealing with customer complaints (a big plus)
    Management works along with the staff--- I have worked in two different Longhorn restaurants (in ND and UT), and in both, management has no problem in running food to tables, helping the cooks, etc.
    Staff is generally supportive of each other.
    No double standards--- Male and female servers are not treated differently; in many restaurants, male servers are often times treated differently by management, but NOT here.
    Sections are not assigned based on looks
    Food is superior---- and good food is easier to sell..
    The restaurants are clean, orderly, and professional--- Longhorn expects a higher standard for its staff, and rewards those who live up to it.

    Cons

    Tip-out is based upon gross sales, not actual tipped sales... not necessarily something I agree with, There is a big difference between the two.
