I worked at Red Lobster part-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Our store had great management which definitely has a trickle effect onto employees and kept them happy. Whenever we needed to find a manager, one was always easy to find and ask for assistance. We received reviews every 6 months to keep us aware of how well we were doing. Our particular store did really well in our region and received a gift card of $25. And we had pot lucks during holidays :)

Cons

We didn't have breaks, and they stressed not to break violate. If you did...you got written up, which seemed unfair at times because we worked off the clock a lot too.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I loved our management, much better compared to so many other restaurants I worked at.
