Server/Waiter (Former Employee) – Roanoke, VA – August 18, 2018
you never really know what time you will get off work at the end of your shift. You can work doubles and get more tips. But the pay is $2.15 an hour... there is really no way to prove your tips did not add up to at least minimum wage so you sometimes work for free after spending gas to get there. Most of the staff is helpful and supportive to each other but some are just mean and not helpful to others at all.. that is the business..
I worked in restaurant for a while but it wasn't for me anymore
Hostess/Server (Current Employee) – San Jose, CA – August 17, 2018
After working in a restaurant since I was 16, I realized I needed to move on and work towards my career goal which is why I decided to find a new job. Eventually, I hope to find a job that benefits me towards my dream job.
Ally Coordinator, Fryer, Prep/Back up (Former Employee) – Matteson, IL – August 16, 2018
The typical day at Red Lobster was very unpredictable at times it could be very fast, then slow and pick right back up again! but overall it was fun the managers was fair and I got the chance to learn different positions and also pay raises. even though I was good at what I did it got hard at times when the orders picked up. But over all it was a nice place to work
Bartender / Wait Staff (Former Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – August 15, 2018
The management team where I worked was horrible. After a while I could not take it. I tried to voice some concerns to upper management but the regional manager in charge doesnt care. The store was super dirty and the management blamed the staff for its poor performance but it was overall poor leadership.

coworkers will bully you until you spaze or quit. The managers are very lazy and are least concerned with the well being of their employees. They are very unorganized. The guest and servers are the least of their concerns.

In my opinion, Red Lobster is not a good place to work for anything other than a part-time job. Payment was low and inconsistent and the workers were often rude and self-centered. Management was pretty good, but that was about the only redeeming quality about the job.

Management needs to be phased out, their ideas aren’t realistic. It’s a sales job so I understand the point of “selling” but making items harder to get to to discourage us from offering them is ridiculous.
Fast environment not for people that cant take the heat from the kitchen
Alley Coordinator/Line Cook (Former Employee) – West Hills, CA – August 13, 2018
Typical day here at red lobster is like this. Walk in salute the boss for the opportunity to be able to make money while testing my capabilities as a man to work in extreme conditions in the heat and around intelligent people as well. Had to be tidy and well at correcting modifications and make sure at any chance show respect to the guests with an warm humble greeting. Staying focused is the main key, let my high energy rub on my fellow co workers and hope for a successful day and night at Red Lobster.

Too short of breaks some times miss a ten minute. Cooks always hired then quit randomly.
