This is my review on Red Lobster in WB
Restaurant Manager (Former Employee) – Wilkes-Barre, PA – December 9, 2012
I started my management career with Red Lobster in Dickson City. It was wonderful. The GM was very fair with scheduling, and everyone got along great. I was transferred to Wilkes-Barre in June, 2011. At first it seemed ok, a lot busier than Dickson City, but no one would help each other, especially managers, except me and the GM. I was on the line cooking when needed, which was quite often. I handled many situations on the floor with guests. I never received a guest complaint on one of my shifts (and we got alot). I was let go in January, 2012 because of an accusation that there was a conflict with a manager, which ended up a he said she said. I never was even questioned by my director, which I also believe is wrong. I am an upstanding person, I do not lie, cheat, or steal. I have a wonderful family, and that's the most important thing in my life. One of the other manager's at the WB Red Lobster felt threatened by me, and I believe that she sabbotaged me, but I had no proof, only circumstancal. I am glad that I got our when I did because there were weeks I was working 70 hours a week, opening at 8am and not leaving until 8pm. I never saw my family. I am willing to work very hard and make your restaurant stronger. I am more of a service manaager, I was a culinary manager for the entire time I managed at Red Lobster. If you were to look at my file from Red Lobster, there are no write-ups, and I worked there for 7yrs. The only thing you will find are good reviews, and even as a manager, I got good reviews.
working with people, getting to help the back of the house which most people forget about, and they have the hardest jobs.
extremely long hours, and management not getting along
