I worked at Darden part-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

money, food, staff, meals provided for preshift before work

Cons

a lot of side work to do, high maintenance guests, lots of testing, unfair decisions at times

Advice to ManagementAdvice

be fair and realize all blame is not due to employee, but also lack of organization, structure of restaurant and management turning a blind eye

    I have been working at Darden full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits with medical, 401k and stock options

    Cons

    The company had also been stable with senior management now they are a revolving door. New visions every year and too many changes. Asks operations managers for too much doesnt allow for a good work life balance. Labor goals are unrealistic most of the time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your losing senior managers because of all the changes and years of promise of personal growth.

    I worked at Darden part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    No sidework! Just doing your own tables.

    Cons

    There is unlimited things like salad, soup and sometimes pasta. That can be taxing at times!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Our General Manager was fired because he really felt like he owned the store personally. If you called the hotline on him he would make you pay.
