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 Management

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.

    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 Management

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


  2. Red Lobster and Darden Doesn't Care about You the Crew!

    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 Management

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