I worked at Darden full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Managers are willing to work with you. Lot of help. Good pay.

Cons

Some weeks have good amount of hours, to the next week having few hours. Huge employee overturn. Normally crowed kitchen, not much room for employees working on line.

Advice to Management

Don't hire to many employees and then not have anywhere to put them.

    I worked at Darden full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The people! Everyone from general manager to dish washer was extraordinarily nice to work with. For years, this company had it right and that added to their success: Treat people like family.

    Cons

    The company has implemented some serious cost saving measures over the past two years that are having a huge effect on employee morale and satisfaction.

    Advice to Management

    Please reflect on the company's history and principles before caving into Wall Street pressures.
