Dishwasher (Former Employee) – Matteson, IL – October 17, 2018
I originally applied for a cook got through the interview and everything just to get told on my start date that I was going to become a dishwasher. I didn’t really care at the time because I was excited to get a second job. Then as I got into the business I seen it wasn’t just washing dishes. I had to take out the trash and all other things. It was an experience is all I’ll say
General Manager (Former Employee) – Topeka, KS – October 17, 2018
Employees and most of the people you work around are great. Unfortunately, this company has fallen hard into the idea of "must make more money, must make more money!" They don't care what they have to do to get there. They literally measure your labor in 4 ways so that way they can always tell you to cut back because surely you weren't good enough in one of the four metrics. I have also personally seen multiple people advance through the company through slimy, shady, backstabbing ways. It's ugly. They do pay pretty well, but it is a trap to keep you there as long as THEY want you there. If you are a slime ball, you can advance, otherwise, good luck!
Free Meal, Good Pay
Every Employee above Store Level, Awful hours, No Integrity, Shady Practices
Expo/kitchen (Current Employee) – Tucson, AZ – October 16, 2018
I love working there, haven't been there very long but I love it already. Crew and management are very friendly and helpful. When you get to work it's like you're welcomed with smiles. And if you fall or not sure they will sure enough step in and help you the right way.
Busser (Former Employee) – Mentor, OH – October 15, 2018
I learned quite a lot at this job. It was a great experience between customer service and leaening how to work at a fast pace. Typical days were fairly easy to manage. Busy days were very very stressful at times and overly fast paced.
Great staff, managers are amazing, clean workplace, great tip outs.
Workplace Drama, Some rude customers here and there.

Helped me pay for college. If you are a people person or you want to develop your social skills I would definitely recommend working at Red Lobster. I am forever grateful for the opportunities I had here, really changed my life for the better.
