A very pleasant and happy place to work
Hostess (Current Employee), Fort Pierce, FLJuly 5, 2014
Pros: the people, and the discounts on food
Cons: short hours when the restaurant is not in season
This is a great place to work with a great atmosphere and great people. I thoroughly enjoy working here. I learned so much about the restaurant business here. My coworkers are amazing and so are the managers. The hardest part of the job is when business isn't booming and you don't get that many hours. The most enjoyable part of the job is interacting – more... with the guests. – less

Porductive & Fun Working Enviroment
Silverware Roller/Host (Former Employee), Stony Brook, NYJuly 2, 2014
Pros: free food
Cons: short breaks
Clocked In, Went Right To Work At 9:00am, Lunch Break At 12:00pm to 12:30pm, Clocked Out At 1:00pm.

Learned How To Stay Focus On The Task At Hand But Still Have Fun While Doing It.

My Co-Workers Were Very Friendly And Out Going Like Me.They Had A Nice Pleasant Way About Themselves When They Were Talking to Me. They Also Gave Me Suggestions to Different – more... Ways To Roll The Silverware In The Paper And Cloth Napkins and Different Ways to Speak To The Guest When I Was Greeting Them And Taking Down The Number And Name In Party And Handing Out Table Pager.

The Hardest Part Of The Job Was Remembering When I Needed to Clock Out For My Lunch Break And Then Clock Back In When My Lunch Break Was Over.

The Most Enjoyable Part Of The Job Was Talking And Engaging In conversation With My Co-Workers While I Was Doing What I Needed To Get Done On The Task At hand. – less

Great Employer, Excellent Training, Good Work Environment...
Assistant Manager (Former Employee), West Palm Beach, FLJuly 2, 2014
Pros: great training, good pay, can be a great job.
Cons: working with other managers who have poor work ethics can bring a store down!!!
Darden puts money into their staff. They pay much better than yrs. ago. If you're going to work in this field this is a consistent job which once you learn becomes easy to perform. Meet many great people. Being hard working Managers sets the tone for a good store. Poor fellow Managers make for terrible working environmnet for everyone.

Hostess (Former Employee), Fort LauderdaleJune 27, 2014
Pros: half off lunch
Cons: short breaks
A typical work day here was always fun. I got the opportunity to constantly meet new people. The environment was not bad as well It was clean and calm.
Also you had to be on your feet most of the day which was in some ways healthy also it was a way to keep being energetic because with the flow of the guests you had to keep and that in itself was fairly – more... exciting. – less
