Pros

Advice to Management

look within and seek the knowledge of those closest to the action (gee isn't that a principle)

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

    Pros

    In the beginning, it was awesome, but the new CEO killed any reason to enjoy working with Darden. The new policies cut my pay by up to 8 dollars per hour.

    Cons

    Everything since the new CEO took over.

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

    Pros

    They offer medical benefits. Pretty flexible when it comes to schedule. Co-workers very friendly.

    Cons

    You pay an arm and a leg for the medical benefits. Management isn't the best. Managers often threaten employees by saying they will fire you, if you call out for even the most extreme reasons.

    Advice to Management

    There should be a better review of the management team at this very Olive Garden.
