Olive Garden Server (Current Employee) – Hyattsville, MD – November 8, 2017
All around good place to work. On some days it can get pretty busy and crazy. You have to pace yourself when you are busy. It can get pretty busy some nights. The management are there to help and there is a good productive culture amongst the servers.

I enjoy working at Olive Garden because of the wonderful and caring people that I work with. Co-workers easily become your friends at Olive Garden and it helps to get through a hectic work day. The guests' can be rude at times, but the workplace culture always makes it better.

they did not care if you were sick or just in a car wreck they had no sympathy or empathy. Worked you 60 plus hours no overtime and if you had a doctors note to be off work to recuperate a sickness you were still required to work.
Server Assistant/Busser (Former Employee) – Jacksonville, FL – November 7, 2017
I loved working there! You get to meet new people every single day and you make tips and who doesn't like tips? The atmosphere could get a little stressful during holidays, but it makes the day go by faster.

Hiring managers for this company have no consideration for their workers personal lives. When i worked for this company everyone (except for a few) done numerous drugs i the restaurant and in the parking lot.
Server/Bar Tender (Former Employee) – Temecula, CA – November 7, 2017
The Olive Garden was one of my favorite restaurant jobs. Management is selected and trained to be the best in the business, by the best in the business. All of the staff are trained and tested before they are put on the line or the floor by themselves and there is an atmosphere of helping each other out and providing the best of everything to everyone around you. Not just the guests, but the rest of the staff and the managers as well. They have high standards, and provide you with all of the tools and resources you'll need to match them.
Host (Former Employee) – Burbank, IL – November 6, 2017
Olive Garden is a great starter job to get your foot in door to other careers. I learned how to set up my direct deposit, how to maintain professional relationships with managers, and interpersonal relationships with guests.
Server (Former Employee) – Lawton, OK – November 6, 2017
Loved every aspect of this job. From the training classes (got to eat food) to wine pairing. Gaining knowledge and understanding the different types of pasta as well as all the differences between the wines. Excellent job for those who are outgoing as well as with anybody whom may need a flexible schedule while attending school or need specific times off. A fast paced environment for those who are not so easily overwhelmed and are able to multitask. Help develop a teamwork mentality and learn great work ethics. All while providing and interacting with guest and being paid nightly with tips earned through working and making your guest enjoy their visit.
