Money is great, but man the pain that comes with it

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

ConsConstantly 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 Senior ManagementIf 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.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    I worked at Red Lobster full-time for more than 8 years


    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.
