    I have been working at Olive Garden Italian Restaurants part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The company is set up with it's employees in mind. It offers a lot of good things. Insurance, help to it's employees who are in need. Good training. The food is good, and the standards are high. If the individual restaurants were ran according to plan, this would be a great place to work

    Cons

    In this location, the management staff, save one, talk down to the team members. Different rules for different team members, Team work is only reciprocated by a select few for a select few, everyone else has to fend for themselves, This is the first restaurant I have ever worked in, where the managers do not go out on the floor and greet guests. The only time they are on the floor is if there is an issue. I hear other servers talking, so I know it isn't just me, tips are generally small. Not what one would expect from this type of restaurant. Coming here to work was a poor decision on my part.

    Advice to Management

    Speak to your team members like they are grown ups and not naughty children. You hire grown ups, treat them accordingly. Go out into your dining room and say hello to your guests. You are here to insure that all goes well, not to watch a train wreck and then assign blame.
