    I worked at Red Lobster part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Customers were nice. The Darden company sounded like a good company to work for, too bad the people running this place don't have a clue how to be good managers and treat people with respect.

    Cons

    Management was nasty, bad training. I have never been treated so bad at a job as I was at the location on Transit road in Williamsville NY

    Advice to Management

    Learn some people skills and how to treat your employees.
