    Great job to grow and gain expiernce in, many different job titles and careers available. Great atmosphere

    Sometimes the managers aren't fair, or aren't approachable with concerns.

    change managers occasionally so that favoritism isn't built or gained and everything is fair.

    I worked at Red Lobster full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Most staff makes it a great place to work.
    Good money on holidays.

    Cons

    Cheap customers equals maybe a 10% tip to bring stiffed (which btw is your fault).
    Staff and management does not help often when having health issues.
    Tray weight is too heavy and you WILL have back problems and management not care.. get a new job or start filling health issues against them.. I'm still paying price for my back after 2 years.
    Managers will bark order at you instead of chipping in to help run food or side work.
    The new GM was a horrible manager and should never have been given her latest title (gossips about staff and other managers to staff).
    Scheduled time in and being cut is done backwards.. first one in is last one out.
    Scripted table greet which is mocked at by other restaurants.. follow it though or you will lose your job.

    Advice to Management

    Help your staff!! Do some actual work instead of standing around barking order!! The more you help your staff the better customer scores you will get... HINT HINT!
    Act as a team instead of against them.... I have met someone who worked in another red lobster and it was actually run with care of everyone.. not just yourself.. and they didn't break the laws.
