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

Pros

Simple corporate model. Follows labor laws and has a pretty strict corporate policy. The job can be rewarding. Great guests always lead to a great serving experience.

Cons

Area dependent, but tends to bring in low income no spending clientele. This can make turning over tables with few problems or a great tip difficult.

Advice to Management

Support your crew. They are the backbone of your restaurant. Make policy that helps the pockets of the wait staff and bar and they will bend over backwards to give you what you want.

    I have been working at Red Lobster part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    You can get free biscuits whenever you want. Other than that there's really no pros to this job.

    Cons

    Extremely low hours. Sometimes even 4 hours a week. Management acts like children. Everything that goes wrong is blamed on the host. You get yelled at by managers, servers, and guests. Everyday is just a survival game.

    Advice to Management

    Don't blame everything that happens in the restaurant on your employees.
