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

Pros

it is a high performance company with strong vision for the future. the culture is one that expects strong execution but stays focused on the nature of hospitality

Cons

it is a very large organization which makes it possible to slip through the cracks if you don't make a concerted effort to excel progress.

    More work to get more customers in the restaurant.

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

    Pros

    Excellent Benefits, fair salary, poor training. Quality of food is a joke

    Cons

    Poor training program, a lot of online training you have to share 1 computer with 8 other people. Management not engaged to help with training, you are like a cog on a wheel to them...and the food is not fresh is they make it out to be. All sauces, soups, etc come out of a bag and are frozen. Same thing with the desserts...made in a factory and squished into a square like shot glass...scallops and seafood are frozen. Scallops come IQF frozen in large brown box and needs to be slacked on trays in the walking...kudos to freshness and the menu changing once a week...this isn't a chef position...a mediocre kitchen manager at best....don't let the 52 seasons in a year ever changing menu fool you...go to Wegman's to get better quality food and cool your own for less...
