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

Pros

They have good systems in place for training. The Employees were fun to work with. Good working conditions. I learned how to cook many delicious tasting food items.

Cons

Not very good benifits. Not enough hours. When it got busy, it got very stressfull, and may times we would be under staffed.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Schedule more people for the busy hours. Try to be a bit more friendly tward your employees.

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

    Pros

    I had the opportunity to meet a lot of really cool people.

    Cons

    Upper management would micro manage their store managers. Most were not very qualified to run a restaurant and it seemed there was no coaching for them. It was all about the numbers and doing whatever it took to make sure the guest had nothing negative to say, even if it meant buying their entire check for the slightest complaint. And there were many complaints! Food was disgusting. They bragged about how they could cook a live lobster in less than 7 minutes with all of their microwaves,but the food still took 45 minutes for a complete order. Poorly run restaurant.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would look a little harder at your hiring/promoting practices for who you select to run your restaurants. Get the microwaves out of the kitchen and get to cooking.
