  • Employee Discount(175 comments)

    Very fair employee discount. 50% off entrees the days you work or $1 all you can eat soup / salad. Off days you get 25% off entrees.

  • Job Training(42 comments)

    Very good, thorough training. Takes a week, you watch videos and get to try most of the food. It's pretty epic.

  • Health Insurance(33 comments)

    Very fair customizable health insurance plan they offer. They have bronze, silver and gold tiers which all are extremely affordable in my opinion.

Darden offers good insuance,401K, and Paid time off.They are also very flexible with your schedule for most part excluding holidays.

I think it's a bit unfair that only salaried employees (managers) have paid maternity leave. Darden can offer dental, health, 401k's and even STOCKS to full-time hourly employees, but, maternity leave is where they draw the line. Not asking for 3 months' full pay but SOMETHING is better than nothing.

Former Server/Bartender in Sacramento, CA, California

100% match on 401k with a 20k yearly cap is unheard of in the service industry, especially for a part-time employee.
