    I worked at Olive Garden Italian Restaurants part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The people I worked with! The company hires really great staff and they have an exceptional training program for servers and hosts. Flexible schedules, app on your phone to switch shifts as needed and super food discount. They also have a nurse on call so even if you do not have health benefits (qualify after one year) you have access to medical attention if injured at work.

    Cons

    Hosting pays little and is very busy. You will at times bus tables as well as your part in sorting and rolling silverware minimum one hour daily. Little time to chit-chat.

    Advice to Management

    None. They are great!
