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

    Pros

    Free biscuits and beverages, online system to look up work schedule, hours, and vacation time, friendly coworkers, personable managers

    Cons

    Worked in production: Daily job sheet exceeding daily work hours leaving zero time to have a break and eat something.

    Advice to Management

    Let production have access to the freezer. Difficult to get the job done when you are busy looking for a manager to open the freezer for you.
