My Red Lobster experience from busing, seating, bar tending, and more.

Bartender (Former Employee)
Bay City, MI

I worked at Red Lobster part-time for more than a year

ProsAbsolutely 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.

ConsHigh 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.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
