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

Managers are sometimes clueless on what they need to do and screw things up. It is hot working in the back.

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

    Pros

    High quality of the food that is served and the facilities to train are excellent.

    Cons

    Higher levels of management although having high standards are inconsistent in disapline from line staff thru all levels of management. Depending on how well you are liked or what favors you have done for who will determine how fast your career will progress. Some are allowed to break rules or not follow procedure by casting a blind eye on violations of compay policy.

    Advice to Management

    Treat people with dignity and respect in a fair and consistent manner.

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

    Pros

    Got paid daily.
    That's pretty much it.

    Cons

    Pay was way to low for a bus boy doing literally everything while the servers and hosts got to laze around
    Got treated like crap there
    The managers are cold to the bussers
    Stuck there until EVERYONE left then you get to start your side work, can't leave until you're done (Got stuck there till 3 one time)
    It was just a borribe experience overall I would NEVER work there again

    Advice to Management

    Get some new management.
    Stop using the bus boys as slaves.
    And Dude for real get the servers to work!
