I worked at Red Lobster full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

It is a well known company so it is always busy. If you can kiss butt, you can go far. The restaurants are always cleaned to a T.

Cons

You are but a pawn in the company, very replaceable. Managers always say one thing and do another.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Value your good employees (which you don't) and get rid of the cancerous ones who bring others down.

    I worked at Red Lobster as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Great benefits even as a part time employee.

    Cons

    Training is not the best. They treat you like you are in a caste system if you are new. Filthy & stinky kkitchens. They expected me to stand with the door wide open for 4+ hours straight as a host. The only thing good about that is that guests would feel sorry for me & give me a tip. As it gets very cramped during busy evening times

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Uniforms should be revised during summer months. Its gets very hot & guests dont want to see a lot of sweat.

    I worked at Red Lobster full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I loved working there because of the staff, we were like family. the managers made it a fun place to work and i made decent tips. working as a server means you can pretty much convince people to leave you a good tip. the hours are flexible, a perfect job for a student like myself.

    Cons

    the hourly salary was only 2.15 and that went toward taxes unless you made horrible tips.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    there was room to bounce around and do other positions but probably not management.
