      Pros

      A great added bonus of Tips, Great Management, and trust within the team. A fun fast paced environment with usually friendly guests. Just a pleasant brand to work for within Darden.

      Cons

      No set time to leave, you stay until you aren't needed, but this is minor and nitpicky and can be beneficial if you want to stay longer and get more hours.

      Advice to Management

      None applicable the current system is wonderful
