    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Darden part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Very flexible scheduling, plenty of shifts to choose, and going home with cash. Darden is willing to cross-train employees in serving, hosting, bartending, and to-go positions.

    Cons

    There seemed to be no room for career advancement, unless one is willing to drive a great distance for training and relocate to manage a new restaurant. The turnover rate is high. Weekend days can be challenging due to hung-over servers not being at the top of their game.


  2. "Nice Company"

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

    Pros

    Management is professional and lets me do my job with minor micromanaging. As long as you keep to conduct everything goes fine. They are understanding when problems arise.

    Cons

    Only thing that sucks is the scheduling of too many servers to handle the 45 minute lunch rush where everybody is spread thin and make crap during lunches.

    Advice to Management

    none.
