Has become too focused on $ and not enough on taking care of people
Staffing & Training Manager (Former Employee) – McLean, VA – December 10, 2013
Seasons 52 started as a great company, and I was fortunate to get in on the ground floor when the company first started. Unfortunately, as with most large corporations, they have become almost exclusively focused on aggressively cutting costs and increasing profits.

Fast paced, professional but fun work setting... I enjoyed it personal, managers are a little hard on you at times but nothing that can't be resolved if you have a level headed opinion/voice. Must have thick skin but job is rewarding
Love the guest they really make your job worthwhile
hostess (Former Employee) – Birmingham, AL – November 25, 2015
The guest are amazing they will have you motivated to work and continue to enjoy your job. Like most restaurants they have their drama but as long as you keep to yourself and do your job (perfectly) no one will talk about you to other coworkers. Managers do not believe in you and they constantly talk down to you and are disrespectful. If you like challenging your temper, stress, and personality this place is for you
Half off food and flexible schedules
Schedules are unpredictable, management doesn't believe in you and treats you poorly, and the day to day drama of being rediculed, judged
❸ Client Liaison Specialist (Current Employee) – Birmingham, AL – March 31, 2015
coworkers are all fun and outgoing, there is some drama between the waitstaff, but that happens at every restaurant. Certain members of management like to show over the top and obvious favoritism to a couple employees, I'm not bitter about this, it's just not very professional and sends the wrong message to the rest of the staff. the job isn't hard at all, however when truly busy its hard to find time to actually enjoy the job.
Culinary Chef (Former Employee) – North Bethesda, MD – March 4, 2015
A typical day at work would include preparing menu items prior to shift starting, a daily meeting with the team to ensure proper food handling requirements are met, then kitchen sanitation was properly enforce before the end of the shift was released from duty. The hardest part of the day was getting through the rush during serving hours, but the team works well together. The most enjoyable part of the job is the awards that the restaurant received because of such successful team work.

A TYPICAL DAY AT WORK IS HAVING FUN GETTING TO KNOW YOUR GUEST AND SMILING. THE MANAGMENT IS OK MOST OF THE THE MANAGERS ARE GOOD BUT ONE MANAGER IS NOT A VERY GOOD MANAGER AND SHE IS ALSO VERY RUDE TO CERTAIN EMPLOYEES. MY CO WORKERS I LOVE THEM ALL WE WHERE LIKE A BIG FAMILY.THEIR WASNT A HARD PART OF THE JOB BUT ONLY WORKING WITH THIS PARTICULAR MANAGER. THE MOST ENJOYABLE WAS GETTING THE JOB THAT I LIKED, WORKING WITH MY TEAM, AND FREE TASTEING OF THE FOOD DURING THE SEASONS.
Waitress (Current Employee) – Jacksonville, FL – August 19, 2014
The management team is awesome and they are very willing to work with school/family schedule. I love all of my co-workers and everyone is always very willing to help each other out. The hardest part of the job is working late nights and being away from my kids. If it wasn't for the late night hours I wouldn't have any reason to look for another job.
Seasons 52 (Darden) is an exceptional company to work for. From the professionalism to the culture to the benefits. I had the opportunity to grow there as a professional and as a person. If it weren't for the fact that I relocated, I would have stayed. I was also part of the opening team there, and I can say it really makes you take pride in your work.
health care benefits, 401k, professional growth opportunities
Fun place to work at with a great atmosphere and great people
Line Cook/ Prep (Former Employee) – Chestnut Hill, MA – June 9, 2014
A typical day at work would be to stock/restock saute station, cook at a high volume, and plating what i made. I learned how to move at a much faster pace and with a sense of urgency. Everyone at Seasons 52 were amazing people. The hardest part of the job was the commute. The people made the job a lot easier.

Server/Bartender (Current Employee) – Birmingham, AL – November 6, 2013
I normally arrive at work 15 minutes prior to receive any additional information needed to complete duties for the day. I would set up bar or stations before opening. The most enjoyable part of my position are the guests and team members,
