I worked at Red Lobster part-time (more than an year)

Pros

Absolutely a fresh, clean, and friendly place. I have many close friends who also worked at about six restaurants in the same area. I've heard endless stories about poor management, drugs & alcohol at work, and sanitation violations. I can say without a doubt that this was the most professional, clean, and probably second or third most successful restaurant in the area. For the record, three of those six restaurants are now closed.

Cons

High turnover. Although I believe the general manager of this restaurant does an excellent job, there always seemed to be an issue of keeping other managers and employees there.

    I worked at Red Lobster full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Free biscuits and beverages, online system to look up work schedule, hours, and vacation time, friendly coworkers, personable managers

    Cons

    Worked in production: Daily job sheet exceeding daily work hours leaving zero time to have a break and eat something.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let production have access to the freezer. Difficult to get the job done when you are busy looking for a manager to open the freezer for you.

    I worked at Red Lobster part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    You get a discount at all Darden owned restaurants.

    Cons

    There is a lot of turn over in this chain. Every so often, they like to almost completely change the staff. There doesn't seem to be a long future here. Also, the clientele doesn't tip as much in general.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They need to get better management for each of the restaurants.
