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

    I worked at Red Lobster part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Weekly pay was definitely a plus, and I started out almost $2 above minimum wage, hourly. Some of the regulars were really nice and made a point to tell the managers nice things about you. Free biscuits, discounted food. They were willing to work around my school schedule as well.

    Cons

    Managers were typically never on the same page. Rude customers whining about wait times, which were sometimes unexpectedly long especially with the endless shrimp promotion. A lot of the other hosts were in high school, with that comes a lot of unnecessary drama and rumors started about you. My hours fluctuated too often for my liking. One week I'd work just under 40 hours, the next week I'd only have 8 hours.
