I worked at Red Lobster full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Has a great group of people to work with and for. Very competitive wages. Many resources to help all.

Cons

Need to advance into the technology field and be the leader in renovation.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Try to recall what made us great - our crew! I still believe we offer a great work environment but lately we have taken much from the employees to leverage revenues. The crew deserves better. Also corporate needs to partner better with the operators.

    Pros

    Awesome tip average
    My co-workers are the best
    Benefits are great

    Cons

    Constantly depicted as a number (your serving ability is determined by service statistics: the number of add-ons you sell, number of returns you had, and only applauded if you had guests that actually went online and did the survey and left you a good review)
    Management is a hot mess

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you treat your employees with more respect and not just be concerned with numbers you may gain more respect out of them. I understand that we are corporate, but that doesn't mean we aren't human.
