Former Employee - Bartender in Williamsville, NY
Former Employee - Bartender in Williamsville, NY

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 ManagementAdvice

Learn some people skills and how to treat your employees.
