      Pros

      If you like serving, Darden is a decent company to work for. At Olive Garden, they only allow you to have three tables at a time, allowing for you to give the best possible service to your guests. They provide flexible scheduling, competent management and a positive work environment.

      Cons

      I don't love serving, but this is a good place to do it.
