    I worked at Red Lobster full-time for less than a 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 have been working at Red Lobster part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Decent pay. And some of the other employees are decent.

    Cons

    No benefits, managers are only worried about bottom line, you learn how much the company actually rips customers off. Managers play favorites. Can't ever have a family emergency or have any holidays off. If you can't work a day they act like you are causing them all this trouble.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    STOP PLAYING FAVORITES! listen to your employees, we are only human and we make mistakes and get sick. Get over it..
