    I have been working at LongHorn Steakhouse part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I like the people I work with and the 25% discount on Darden restaurants is nice. They also worked with my college schedule.

    Cons

    It can be difficult at first but once you get the hang of it it becomes a lot easier. High turnover rate.

    Advice to Management

    Reward your employees more!

    Pros

    Nice atmosphere. The staff treats everyone nicely. Also if you're persistent the management will let you train into another position such as server or bartender.

    Cons

    If you are not into a fast paced environment then this may not be for you. Need to be able to maintain a positive attitude because the environment can be toxic at time's just like any restaurant job.

    I have been working at LongHorn Steakhouse full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    High volume, and large sections

    Cons

    No accountability. Servers are required to take as many tables walk in the door, and may have upwards of 8 or more tables at one time. Running and side work are extremely time consuming, and often out of the realm of typical server work, e.g. taking out trash and breaking down equipment.

    Pros

    Awesome food. Management was nice enough. Working for Darden has perks such as 20% off at other darden restaurants, discounts on your cell phone bill, etc.

    Cons

    I came in with 5 years serving experience and was only allowed to bus tables for minimum wage. They scheduled split shifts several days a week, which doesn't work for many people. People constantly called off or did not show up, and they didn't have any repercussions.

    Advice to Management

    Consider drug testing your employees, it would make for a better work environment and more reliable employees. Also, better pay and benefits are well deserved.

    Pros

    401k for servers is great. Won't find that very often. Some management was great.

    Cons

    Large/continual management turnover. Sunday crowds were terrible.
