I worked at Darden part-time (More than a year)

Pros

Although much of it depends on each stores management, Darden restaurants are largely supportive, flexible, understanding, and efficient. Great second job or "fill-in" income.

Cons

Since customer satisfaction is number one, sometimes they over staff their shifts so no one can make any money and it's a big waste of time for half the staff who bothered to show up.

    There are many employees at Darden restaurants, so organization and scheduling are important concepts involved in keeping the business running smoothly.
