Current Employee - Server/Barteneder in Saint George, UT

I have been working at Red Lobster full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Good pay for the amount of hours worked.
Flexible schedule, it's usually easy to pick up extra shifts or to give shifts away.
50% discount during the shift, 25% discount on days off.
Good benefits, some available even on your first day.

Cons

Management is often too busy to be of much help during the shift.
Red Lobster pushes us to give a more "fine dining" experience, but doesn't always provide the support or staff to pull it off.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

If you want the quality of guests experience to improve, provide the needed servers, bussers, and kitchen staff throughout the day to give quality service so it isn't so rushed.
Re-think the zone partner system, or work on the pacing of seating. Teamwork is great, but if everyone is being triple seated, who else is supposed to have time to help out?

    Pros

    Tips, flexible hours, benefits offered

    Cons

    Clientele, Micro-manager supervisors, promotions offered

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The management acts as if the restaurant is a fine dining atmosphere, but really we are the furthest from that with the promotions we offer and the clientele that comes in.

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

    Pros

    Great company and training provided.

    Cons

    Crazy schedules. Work over 40 hours every week but no benefits that are affordable. Health insurance is available but at a premium rate that is almost unaffordable to most servers. Lots of doubles and slpit shifts with no breaks some days.
