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

    Pros

    They will give you great hours, great co-workers, friendly environment

    Cons

    they will schedule you double shifts and expect you to only take a thirty minute break, sometimes splits don't get cut so we work open to close with a small break. Usually understaffed so it's hard to find people to cover a shift

    Advice to Management

    Don't schedule people as doubles unless that want to be a double, if they are give them an hour break. Train hosts as servers or make them follow a server for a day during host training.

    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    You get fairly alright tips.
    You work..... A LOT (not sure if you consider that a pro or con)
    You meet some cool people

    Cons

    Never full time, don't even consider it, they will not put you full time.
    No competitive wages, its minimum wage where you work. In California, its $8.00 an hour for Servers... NO EXCEPTIONS.
    They will work you till death. They will schedule you 6 days a week (unless you have different availability) and they will make you work till the very last minute before you violate.... up to 6 hours.
    You will and I repeat WILL get stressed out. Loved it, but the hours were not worth it neither was the pay. You'll get good tips but then you won't.
    Everything you do is recorded and they don't show any mercy on employees. You mess up... its a write up!

    A LOT OF DRAMA!!!! It's high school all over again...but worse!

    Advice to Management

    Get your crap together and just be managers instead of favoring one another!
