The job of a server is very stressful, dealing with very needy and unappreciative guest with very little support.

I have been working at Red Lobster full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Cash on hand because you take home most of the tips you make and a flexible schedule.

Cons

Poor management accountability, guest do not always tip correctly if at all. Often over worked and underpaid with little to no appreciation from management and company.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Boost staff morale by elevating some of the pressure that servers have to deal with by having a larger presence and being welling step in and help so that servers are not running around doing everything from taking orders, to making bread, washing dishes and prepping entrees.

    I worked at Red Lobster full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The particular restaurant I worked at was always very busy, so I made more money here than I ever have at any place before.

    Cons

    I feel like Darden doesn't care about it's employees. My managers played favorites and treated the majority of us like crap. Dozens of us sent letters and emails complaining and heard nothing in return. You will be treated like just another replaceable employee.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Actually respond to letters from people that work for your company!
