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

Pros

Good pay for the amount of hours worked.
Flexible schedule, it's usually easy to pick up extra shifts or to give shifts away.
50% discount during the shift, 25% discount on days off.
Good benefits, some available even on your first day.

Cons

Management is often too busy to be of much help during the shift.
Red Lobster pushes us to give a more "fine dining" experience, but doesn't always provide the support or staff to pull it off.

Advice to Management

If you want the quality of guests experience to improve, provide the needed servers, bussers, and kitchen staff throughout the day to give quality service so it isn't so rushed.
Re-think the zone partner system, or work on the pacing of seating. Teamwork is great, but if everyone is being triple seated, who else is supposed to have time to help out?

    I worked at Red Lobster full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Company was fair cared about its people and the salaries were usually fair for the positions

    Cons

    I would still be there except new SVP was so degrading of managers and staff
    Especially women that I did not want to be a part of that.
    He tried it with me and I stood up for myself so he backed off. Heard him say that he did not want to hire anyone over 50

    Advice to Management

    Look closely at your people in positions of power because this company deserves the best of the best
