    I worked at Red Lobster full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Make my own tips and take them home in cash. And get paid weekly on paycheck for hours

    Cons

    Management sucks! Very unprofessional location. Always understaffed, nothing is never clean, and nothing comes out on time. U come in with a great attitude and leave your shift with a headache!

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

    Pros

    Servers make decent tips and required sectional support from other serving staff. Floor Management was wonderful at my location (excluding one manager.) "Family"/team atmosphere. Lots of extra support from most managers when busy. Full time employees get great benefits.

    Cons

    Bar tenders make little money and frequently experience transfers on existing tabs to tables. Bar Manager micromanaged to a degree that made shifts unbearable. Showed extreme/obvious favoritism towards certain employees.

    Advice to Management

    More positive reinforcement when employees correctly do things. Acknowledgement of positive behaviors/ tasks done appropriately goes a long way.

    Great opportunity for fast advancement. Well fed everyday, very clean work environment.

    I have been working at Red Lobster part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    make good money as a server, and it gets you ready for other fast paced jobs.

    Cons

    the fellow employees aren't as into the job as everyone, too many lazy people just want to get paid to work and have no pride in what they do, laziness is a big issue in all restaurants im sure.

    Advice to Management

    do your job and everything will fall into place, don't show favoritism, because in my restaurant there is too much favoritism and if we go to management they take it out on who's "snitching".

    The money, flexiable hours and fast pace job

    Cons

    servers had to do everything even side jobs that had nothing to do with us.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to do your job right and stop making servers do everything.
