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

    Pros

    health benefits on day one with dental, health, vision, pre paid legal, 401k, life insurance.

    Cons

    Mean general manager who favors the ones he likes. Inconstant work hours, drama, bunch of 10% tippers, rude people, seems like it's the poor mans night out and the customer already knows what they will tip know matter how much they spend. The general manager doesn't really care about wasting food or you for that matter. MANAGEMENT HAVE NO PEOPLE SKILLS. why schedule someone to work at 6:45pm? you close at 10 o'clock? Bad hours and you get to work with dumb people and serve them too for little to nothing.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more intelligent people. GROW out of discounts and deals. YOU ARE RED LOBSTER!!! PEOPLE WILL COME. All that does is get people who are cheap and tipping 5%-10%.
