Pros

Family meal everyday. 25% discount at other Darden restaurants. Working with those who have similar passion for food and wine.

Cons

Insurance is bad. Used to get 50% discount but now 25% at own store. Shuffling in management and worry about their own jobs gets in the way of moving up the ladder. Rewarding those golden people who make the same mistakes over and over.

Advice to Management

There is a reason so many great people have left. Maybe you should check into that and consider it a wake up call.

    Pros

    you make great money, receive great benefits, they really try to accommodate time off when you need it. overall great place to work, some management improvements needed.

    Cons

    management has no people skills, talks down to guests and employees, slams the floor and kitchen with unrealistic turn times.

    Advice to Management

    its meant to be fine dining. there needs to be more focus on the experience and less on the number of people coming through the door.

    I have been working at The Capital Grille part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    High standards, opportunity to learn and excel in guest service, they prefer to promote form within so there is always opportunity for advancement in the company. If you want to have a career at Darden, you will have every chance to move forward if you excel at your job.

    Cons

    People can be difficult to work with and the managers are not always passionate about their jobs, long hours make it difficult to have a good work/life balance.
