Doesn't Recommend
No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

Customers were nice. The Darden company sounded like a good company to work for, too bad the people running this place don't have a clue how to be good managers and treat people with respect.

Cons

Management was nasty, bad training. I have never been treated so bad at a job as I was at the location on Transit road in Williamsville NY

Advice to Management

Learn some people skills and how to treat your employees.

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

    Pros

    Professional management team, clean atmosphere, benefits that begin immediately, employee discount (50% during work day, 25% off days and that applies to any Darden location). If you are really hard-working and motivated you can go quite far here.

    Cons

    Can be strenuous at times, especially during periods such as Lobster Fest or Endless Shrimp. Some staff are difficult to deal with.

    Advice to Management

    Just need some restructuring, such as having stations fully prepared for shifts, making sure each station works in sync with one another to increase production and allow for a smoother transition between shifts, boosting employee morale.
