Server Assistant (Former Employee) –  Costa Mesa, CAJuly 9, 2018
It was a pleasant place to work at. I enjoyed the management and the work ethics. It was very busy but you had others to help out. I learned how hard the restaurant business gets hit on Mother's day. The hardest part of this position was keeping enough silverware handy for the whole floor.
Pros
you got to eaat the plates that came back.
Cons
there was nowehere to enjoy a break.

Terrible work environment, poor management
FOH Server (Former Employee) –  Tampa, FLJune 18, 2018
Probably worst job I have ever had. The management has no control over staff, nor do they care, the pretty much let the staff make scheduling decisions that dictate people’s money. Even if you’re a great employee and do your best they don’t care nor do they have any clue what’s even going on. You’re told to go to managers with guest issues but when you do they tell you to handle it yourself. You are made to clean and do work that technically you aren’t getting paid the proper wage for and once again they do not care.
Pros
Food discount
Cons
Management is the absolute worst

management preached a culture they don’t follow
ServerServer (Former Employee) –  Princeton, NJApril 23, 2018
The Mananging partner is always on vacation or out. So the rest of the management team are burned out and they lie for the sake of looking good for regional manager. They make fun of guests looks, disabilities, allergies and political beliefs. They will stop at no cost to share with guests why a team member was fired. And they lie to make themselves appear right. Very bad ethics and culture.
Pros
Temperature control environment
Cons
Everything else

Fun place with great management
Hostess/Cashier (Current Employee) –  Rockville, MDApril 20, 2018
The management is great, they're incredibly understanding and really care about their employees. It's almost like a family, especially with the regulars that come in all the time. Sometime's on Fridays, Saturdays, and Holidays it gets really busy so you're running around like mad but it's all part of the job
Pros
great management, family environment
Cons
short breaks

Dinner at Seasons
Server Assistant (Former Employee) –  Costa Mesa, CAApril 16, 2018
A day would start by checking what needs to be restocked or refilled. Typically all you'd do is polish the silverware and glassware that was fresh out the wash. Management when i was there was great. I had issues resolved quickly. The hardest part about the job was having enough dessert spoons for everybody. The most enjoyable part was the food we would get to eat from time to time.

Ok Place to work

Great team but lacking leadership
Server (Former Employee) –  Costa Mesa, CAMarch 24, 2018
Great group of team members. Unfortunately, there is a huge lack of leadership, which hurts team morale. Very busy restaurant so you learn to work well with teams of all different personalities and backgrounds.

Hectic
BEVERAGE MANAGER (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILMarch 5, 2018
This restaurant was a little different than most Darden restaurants. It was located in downtown Chicago and was very competitive. The staff was spoiled and expected everything to be handed to them. However, I believe that was the restaurant mentality in that location.

Always on going training, the culture slipped a little and its a little hard to advance in the company. Fun atmosphere to be in if you're not looking to move up.

Fun environment
Cons
Needs more control on standards and culture.

Productive working in a totally scratch kitchen.
Saucier (Former Employee) –  Kansas City, MOFebruary 28, 2018
Start at 8 AM and leave when you are finished with your prep list, after helping other team members to finish also. Management left me alone for the most part. Managers kept coming and going at least one new manager every month.
Pros
Working in my own area sauce prep.
Cons
Too many management changes.

Server (Current Employee) –  Lone Tree, COJanuary 29, 2018
A management team that would rather belittle the staff, and refuses to trust any one on staff do be capable of doing their own jobs. very little respect for their staff overall.

Bar Trainer (Former Employee) –  Dallas, TXDecember 11, 2017
no more than 3 tables & about 35 steps of service required. secret shoppers every day - if you fail you get in trouble (possibly terminated). $25/hr av. on weekends if busy - $9/hr if slow. seasonal employee meetings on weekend mornings for new menu orientation.

Cons
will work you straight through (13 hrs) without a break unless you seriously complain

worst job i ever had
Server (Current Employee) –  King of Prussia, PANovember 19, 2017
the place should be good money the menu price point seems that way . but it isn't ... the opportunity isn't equal , the station are divided
by 3 table sections and not seat counts. You are scheduled for double shifts with out breaks.It is not uncommon to work 10 or 12 hours with out a break . There is also about 2 hours of side work ever night before you leave. Management doesn't rewarded you for knowledge or skill. Large wine menu with little wine training. Microwaved food, frozen fish all of which wouldn't have bothered me if the places image wasn't seasonal fresh grill .

The money was really bad .. if you are a professional stay away !!!
Pros
free parking
Cons

Very physically challenging work with little compassion. Little care is given to those who work hard. Behavior that would normally be prohibited is often overlooked.
