Doesn't Recommend
Neutral Outlook
No opinion of CEO

I have been working at Darden full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Some good health insurance. Menu has diversity but going away from a steakhouse. Employees help one another. On your own here

Cons

No leadership. Managers in office or working on paperwork during peak hours. A VS T is bad it's our fault. Should be out with the guests to nullify problems. Can't find them

Advice to Management

A smaller menu. Too many choices equal mistakes. Caesar and app salads should be placed on the square plates. Looks great and mounded up you use less product. In a bowl it looks flat and use more. Creativity is left to someone else. Come up with some culinary contest that employees can do.

    I have been working at Darden full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Easy to swap shifts, give up, pick up.

    Cons

    Everything changed when Darden bought out rare for Longhorn. Was once a good company with good values, I once was proud to work there.

    Advice to Management

    Stop lowering the quality of the food and charging higher prices!
