    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.
