    I have been working at Darden part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Employees and Managers are hard working and helpful.

    Cons

    All restaurants will limit employee hours to 28 a week maximum.... Some locations are already doing this and the rest will start January 01st. Cheapest health insurance policy is now 300. a month per person. Who can afford that working 28 or less hours per week???

    Advice to Management

    Quit opening new locations every week and take better care of the employees who helped this company to be so successful! Drop the 28 hour rule!! Instead have all employees work 40 to 50 hours per week. Less employees means less health insurance costs for the company. That 0 to 10 hours of overtime is only an extra 1.50 per hour. Very cheap to the company. Saves the company money vs health insurance costs. Servers and Bartenders will be able to earn a living they can survive on.
