    Pros

    It was decent money as long as you were good. They tried coming out with new food quarterly and would do competitions nightly for free dinner or things like that when the new stuff rolled out. I worked there for a long time and made a lot of close friends. It was the only restaurant that I ever worked at that I didn't get sick of the food and actually will still go back to eat at. The people that I see complaining on here probably were just crappy servers honestly. You're the one that is dictating what kind of money you can make by how hard you work and how good you are with people.

    Cons

    Summer and the air not working....lol. Got messed around with on the management path so I decided to leave for a better opportunity which got me out of the restaurant industry, so maybe it was a good thing after all.

    Advice to Management

    Most of my store managers were great to work with and still friends with them to this day. I'd say they ran things pretty well and as long as you were willing to work hard they would do what they could to keep you happy.

    Pros

    Good company to work for. Restaurant is clean. It's easy to stand by the name and believe in what I am trying to sell.

    Cons

    Not many incentives. Atleast two people have to stay in the building with a manager at the end of the night.

    Advice to Management

    Some of the managers need to work on their professionalism. Run more incentive contests. Need to pay food runner more money so servers don't have to.

    Pros

    nothing that I can remember was positive. this section requires 20 word minimum but to be honest there should be no minimum for darden

    Cons

    low pay, less respect. always busy and the people they hire are unreliable and even less talented at what they were hired to do.

    Advice to Management

    spend the $ for real talent in your kitchen, OVERSTAFF!

    Pros

    Discount on food, good people to work with

    Cons

    Same cons you would find at any restaurant. Sometimes, it's not busy enough to may good money.

    Pros

    Pros - Cash in hand every night Cons - Unless you are also a SP... then no money to be seen. Work hard, you'll make money. IF you're in a good location with plenty of business. Its a restaurant. You have your lazy coworkers, the dramatic ones, the bossy ones, the obnoxious ones, the unreliable ones. Plus a couple of good eggs.

    Cons

    Too many to think of.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the unreliables. There are too many people out there who need jobs for you to waste your time being short staffed with call outs this consistently.

    I worked at LongHorn Steakhouse

    Pros

    There is decent money on weekends and a pretty decent discount on food when you're working.

    Cons

    Poor management, lack of respect for their employees, poor teamwork amongst front of house and back of house staff.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure your management treats employees with respect if you want to keep your employees around for longer than a few months

    Pros

    Flexible hours, It's a great place to work part-time for any college student or any individual looking to work a few hours a day and take home cash.

    Cons

    You must be able to work on the weekends as these times are when servers and bartenders are needed the most. Management has its ups and downs that take time to figure each out and how you should cater to each.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to motivate staff to perform at high performance levels. Maintaining a high expectancy for the overall cleanliness of the restaurant in a must.
