I have been working at Red Lobster full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Schedule flexibility, health insurance, matched 401k, discounts on many businesses such as AT&T, Darden Dimes, higher check averages than many other chain restaurants

Cons

Like many restaurants, just having to serve rude people; a good share of sidework and cleaning

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The managers need to be on the same page about many issues.

    Pros

    Money can be good if you bust your butt.

    Cons

    Management runs around like a chicken with head cut off. Managers lie to cover their butts. Gms lie to cover the managers butts. Directors lie too, they all lie to cover their corperate a$$. Darden says they a great company to work for. Go work a month in any of your Red Lobstes and see how great they feel.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Dont forget what its like to be at the bottom. We are why you make the money you do.
