    I worked at Red Lobster full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I loved my job, was a server trainer before becoming a bartender. Bartending was great I worked my Wednesday to sunday, double on friday and saturday. Money was good, coworkers were awesome and people were people.... most good, some bad. Until grubhub and doordash started taking off. I was at a store without a takeout person. It was on me to do all of it, while taking care of my bar, service well and a few tables. It got to be too much.

    Cons

    TAKEOUT!!! Takeout, takeout and takeout. Theres my 5 words
