    I worked at Red Lobster part-time

    Pros

    -Flexible schedule. You work when you want to.
    -Family-like atmosphere between employees. You deal with a LOT of personalities so there's never a dull moment.
    -You learn to take charge when you need something done and no one else is there to do it.
    -You learn to maintain professional composure when talking to the most ignorant, hateful people.
    -You get a lot of exercise and a good night's sleep.

    Cons

    -NO BREAKS!!!!!!!!!
    -You do EVERYONE's job, not just your own.
    -On a busy night, you will easily have too many customers to take care of and no one around to help, or you run out of some popular item, or have some kind of back-up in the kitchen, which leads to you taking a long time to fulfill requests and customers getting angry, complaining, leaving no tip, and maybe even getting you into trouble.
    -The occasional perpetually unsatisfied customers who don't understand how tipping works but expect you to go to the moon and back for them (for free, basically)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -Servers need to be able to communicate directly with other staff when customers need something the server can't help them with immediately. Servers waste a lot of time running back and forth looking for an available manager to help a needy customer. Managers are always busy or missing.

    -Endless Shrimp... servers' worst nightmare. And 4-Course is impossible during volume hours.These options need limitations in place.
