I have been treated wonderfully by Darden.

Waiter (Current Employee)
Saint Louis Park, MN

I have been working at Olive Garden Italian Restaurants part-time for less than a year

ProsThere is a phenomenal work environment that starts with the senior management. They really care about their employees and insist on fantastic training programs.

ConsOlive Garden closes their doors by 11PM on weekends, and 10PM on weekdays. The only con here is that the number of "busy hours" are not always readily available.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Went through 35 managers in ten years...Amazing.

Alley Coordinator (Former Employee)
Miami, FL

I worked at Olive Garden Italian Restaurants full-time for more than 8 years


Pros: Flexibility...and caring managers if you showed some initiative. Was able to do my Hospitality Internship there. The managers would train you… Cons: Employee Theft, Low class coworkers, very intense work!!! Fast paced. Low quality food.They are now… Advice to Senior Management: You are sliding and getting more expensive, without the "quality"… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
