Wonderful place to work with different managers.
Bartender/Server (Former Employee), Tigard, ORApril 21, 2014
Managers, mainly one in particular, was very sexist and now has a lawsuit against them for racism. It was a wonderful company to work for, but under different management. I loved the people and the customers, but the way the company was going made them not care about their employees.

Horrible upper Managers, GMs
Service Manager (Former Employee), Marbach, San Antonio, TXApril 17, 2014
Pros: nada
Cons: you name it.
GMS are yes men with no idea how to run a home kitchen let alone a million $ operation. Director rules by intimidation and threats. Former GM stalked me to new job after I quit and almost got me fired. Darden laughed it off. Company going under. Don't do it!

Long hours, great pay
Restaurant Manager (Former Employee), Toledo, OHApril 17, 2014
It was a great company to work for. I had many great years there. The only true downside was the amount of hours worked in a week. it often times caused me to miss important family functions. That being said, the pay was great. I also really loved the people I worked with. I met many people at Red Lobster that will remain an important part of my life.
