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

Pros

SUPER flexible work schedule. decent tips on the pricer promotions.

Cons

extremely cheap promos which translated into $2-$4 tips. tip outs to employees who did little to nothing at all to help me earn my tips. at my particular location, management had servers do extensive side work at the end of the night that hourly employees were supposed to do all while paying us $2.13/hr which is WELL BELOW minimum wage.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

if you're going to have servers do the sidework that ACs are supposed to do then pay them $7.50 to do it, which is the same pay you give the opening servers to set up the restaurant.

    Pros

    Health Insurance, 401 K. Good job if you are in college and need to change your work schedule to adjust for school.

    Cons

    Management does not care about employees. Servers are held accountable for everyone's failures..from host, to management, to bartenders taking to long to make your bar drinks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stand up for your servers, and help them out when they need help.
