      Flexible hours for student or those with other time commitments.Hourly money isn't bad for an entry-level job. You get to meet a lot of people. You get to work a lot on your acting skills.


      High stress environment. You may get treated like garbage by guests, management and coworkers alike. Hours can be late. You smell like garlic every night. Mind-dumbingly boring work. If you want to make decent money you can't slow down for a second or take a meal break. Working weekends and nights is practically required if you want to make money.

        It really depends on where your Red Lobster is located - in smaller markets away from the coasts where there is very little competition it is a great place to work. As far as restauarants are concerned you can make relatively good money most of the time. Was there for over 7 years - for the most part if you do a good job they will take pretty good care of you. Also, since they are part of the Darden family of restaurants (Olive Garden, Smokey Bones, Seasons 52), often when one of the concepts is struggling, the other concepts keep the company afloat.


        In a down market like we've recently experienced Red Lobster is one of the first restaurants to be affected - there are many less expensive options available. They need to remember that they are not a fine dining restaurant - they should strive for more of a "fun" environment rather than trying to appear "upscale".

      Anyone know how indepth Crowe background check is? What do they verify? Do they use a third party service? What exactly are they looking for?



      I've completed an initial phone screening interview, followed by a 2-hour interview with the Department VP. Next in the process are three separate 90-minute peer interviews. Is there a possibility of another interview after the peer interviews, or should I anticipate receiving an offer?
