    Company has some of the best benefits of being a server including tip share and employee discount.

    Employees know they are, but it's not good for company moral to treat them like they are expendable.

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

    Pros

    - Working with great people
    - Serving the best food the industry has to offer at a great value
    - Flexible Hours
    - Great room for advancement

    My GM is one of the greatest guys/managers I have ever worked for. He has been a mentor and somewhat of a father to me throughout my time at Longhorn.

    Cons

    - Some of the lower level managers need to learn how to respect employees. I worked at Longhorn as a server/bartender for 5 years in total. Around my 3rd year there, a fairly new manager openly screamed at me in the middle of the dinning room in front of guests because I was 5 minutes late when in fact he looked at the wrong schedule and I was an hour early. Managers like this should be fired from the company immediately.

    - The district manager of our region had absolutely no respect for the GM of our store and would openly berate him in front of other employees which I found to be completely un-professional. Especially when our GM was one of the best performing in the company.

    Advice to Management

    Respect your peers and co-workers.
