Training could be better.

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

    Pros

    They actually work with your school schedule. If you applied for this job because you NEED it, they give you the hours you need. I was already talking to the one manager about becoming a certified crew trainer!

    Cons

    None at all! Great place.

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

    Pros

    It's a good company to work for it you have a degree and want to move up to management. They offer flexible scheduling. You get to meet and interact with a lot of different people on a daily basis. Management is understanding and generally cares about its employees (I however, cannot speak for other locations).

    Cons

    Most make a little over minimum wage (your pay + majority of your tips). SAVE your Lobsterfest money, it'll be your biggest money maker for the entire year! There's little to no overtime… Other servers sanitary protocols are highly questionable to completely obsolete… Ugh! Benefits suck unless you've been with the company for awhile and work full-time.

    Advice to Management

    Do less promotions threw out the year (they just brings out the cheapskates)… it's Red Lobster after all, the people that love their cheddar bay biscuits and seafood will come!
