Darden(Longhorn parent company) for the most part runs the best restaurants in the industry. They know the market, customers, etc much better than other groups. You feel like you are working for a well oiled machine. Benefits and pay are good, not excellent but you trade this off for working for a more solid foundation. Long termers reap some nice vacation times and for the most part they do their best to make sure you get that time. If you're looking for solid and dependable this could be a restaurant group that fits one's needs. A big plus is the 9 brands Darden owns and you get discounts at those other brands when you dine.
This is a very high stress job(Top 10%). Labor situations are often very tenuous and Labor is run very tight here, so a callout or lack of an employee means you'll be working their position and managing the responsibilities of running the restaurant at the same time. Constantly dealing with broken equipment, AC, etc just gets tedious and adds to stress when having to listen to staff complaints all day. IT here is generally horrible, other restaurant groups are way ahead here. Lastly, guests here can be very problematic, they know this is the restaurant they can get freebies at ease and they play that tune well. Corporate will always believe guest over managers, so one has to be extremely careful dealing with them. Favoritism can also be rampant here.

I love their emphasis on people and great culture!
In the past, we were consistently working 50-60 hours a week, but they’re making a big effort to improve quality of life.

Management is competent, knowledgeable and always willing to help out. Expectations are clearly laid out, anything that's outside of the job description is asked for. Availability is respected. Pay is quite competitive compared to the neighboring restaurants.
Closing shifts usually result in clocking out at midnight or later.

Pay is just decent. Discounts are cool.
You are either the bosses favorite pet, or you can do no right. Workplace politics is out of control. If you want to work here and you are a competent employee, you have to compete against the managers favorite, and if you do so the managers will try to convince you that you are sub par employee to keep you from taking positions they want to give to the employees they like. The managers will expect you to perform at a level they have no chance of keeping up with themselves. They will blatantly lie to your face and call you unprofessional if you prove them wrong. They core values are a joke and go right out of the window when it gets busy, but will expect you to maintain them while Patting their favorite pets for blatantly breaking the rules and standards in pursuit of getting the job done. You will be told not to socialize by managers who talk to much. You will be told to move faster by managers who are much slower than you. You will be told to cook better by managers that cannot cook. The best way to describe this company's way of doing this it's like this, you will watch you manager play stupid games and hand you the stupid prize. They will plan badly and tell you it's because you're not working hard enough. If something goes wrong it is the fault of the house punching bag and never the fault of management's awful planning.

Great job with mediocre management. Great stepping stone
Management has a hard time being consistent. Like working for a 5 headed learning disabled giraffe that can't talk to itself.

- 4.0Nov 6, 2023Server/WaiterCurrent Employee
Most managers are good and helpful. Employee meals is a great bonus. The app is very helpful.
Managers with passive aggressive and control issues are not well addressed. Double shifts do not have proper breaks established.
