I worked at Red Lobster part-time (More than a year)

Pros

Absolutely a fresh, clean, and friendly place. I have many close friends who also worked at about six restaurants in the same area. I've heard endless stories about poor management, drugs & alcohol at work, and sanitation violations. I can say without a doubt that this was the most professional, clean, and probably second or third most successful restaurant in the area. For the record, three of those six restaurants are now closed.

Cons

High turnover. Although I believe the general manager of this restaurant does an excellent job, there always seemed to be an issue of keeping other managers and employees there.

    I worked at Red Lobster part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You get a discount at all Darden owned restaurants.

    Cons

    There is a lot of turn over in this chain. Every so often, they like to almost completely change the staff. There doesn't seem to be a long future here. Also, the clientele doesn't tip as much in general.

    Advice to Management

    They need to get better management for each of the restaurants.


  2. "Horrible management at my location"

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

    Pros

    Decent pay. And some of the other employees are decent.

    Cons

    No benefits, managers are only worried about bottom line, you learn how much the company actually rips customers off. Managers play favorites. Can't ever have a family emergency or have any holidays off. If you can't work a day they act like you are causing them all this trouble.

    Advice to Management

    STOP PLAYING FAVORITES! listen to your employees, we are only human and we make mistakes and get sick. Get over it..
