Current Employee - Server in Elizabethtown, KY

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

Pros

Higher than average check averages for the casual-dining resturant model.
Free cheddar biscuts

Cons

non-cohesive management strategy.
trying to compete with unrelated markets (fast casual dining)
implementing a hiring strategy that causes experienced applicants to not apply/stay

Advice to ManagementAdvice

stop trying to compete with panera/Mccallister's, they are different models fundementaly. Truely focus on customer experience rather than saying you are, but really trying to make servers into baristas/counter people.

    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.
