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

Pros

The opportunity to experience what a hostile work environment is truly like and to appreciate the opportunities that have presented themselves after experiencing this form of discrimination. The few and far between genuine and honest guests and relationships that were made. Wrongfully terminated and sued for unemployment AND WON!

Cons

wage theft, harassment, bullying environment, low class no class management and diners with an "entitlement" type attitude. Management does not and will not stick up for their servers.

Advice to Management

I won't waste precious airspace on the lowest form of human garbage that have been carelessly given any kind of "management" position. I now work the type of environment that if a guest mistreats or is a poor tipper, they will be asked by management to not return.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Darden part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Better training than most Restaurtants

    Cons

    Managers don't listen to employee concerns. No full-time opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on lowering turnover. You lose too many good people when you don't pay close attention to what employees need.
