I have been working at Red Lobster full-time (more than an year)

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.

    I have been working at Red Lobster full-time (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.
