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

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, diversity of co-workers, talking to new and different customers every day.

    Cons

    No consistency what so ever, no accountability, rules and guidelines are put in place but followed at the whim of the management team on that particular day. Hourly employees are looked at as expendable. If you want a lifetime career where you feel valued, Darden is NOT the company for you.

    Advice to Management

    Darden preaches team work and pride in ones' position and work. That said, Darden management looks at hourly employees as expendable and incapable of intelligent thought. Lower level management are worked like slaves. I was proud and excited when I started working at Longhorn Steakhouse and now I'm frustrated, disillusioned and embarrassed to say I work there. Longhorn needs a series of "under cover bosses" to see what the REAL Longhorn is all about. I know you would be disgusted.


  2. "Poor experience"
