Server (Former Employee), Hampton, VA – March 25, 2013
Pros: multi-tasking, finding your strengths and weakness
Cons: have money everyday
i started off as a server for red lobster i would wait on about 3 to 4 tables at once. i would greet my customers , place drink orders,bring them bread and place their food orders and cater to the guest until they leave. I learned a lot about myself and my customer service skills. i learned how to balance my time and go above and beyond to make any – more... guest at red lobster the best experience.my managers were very hands on and my co workers worked as a team .we made sure everybody got the help they needed but also learned how to manage on your own. the hardest part was learning that you really cat please everyone and not take a already upset customer comments personal. the most enjoyable part was the rush, fast pace and satisfied customers – less
Would be a nice place to work if under different management ..
Server assistant (Former Employee), Greenwood, sc – March 25, 2013
Pros: friendly co workers
Cons: poor management
Was hired with 7 people. We trained for over 6 weeks being promised we would be on the floor by then.. We weren't. Was jerked around and around finally quit after 8 weeks of making less than 50$ per week with 3 children to support. Management was very unorganized. Made promises that weren't kept. Im glad to be gone. Do NOT advise applying for the Greenwood – more... Red Lobster!! – less

Full-Time Bartender (Former Employee), Brea, CA – March 6, 2013
A typical day at work would start for me at 4pm and end anywhere between 10pm-12pm. I typically worked by myself as one of the lead bartenders. Red Lobster taught me everything I know as far as bartending goes, it was also my first restaurant job. As far as management and coworkers go they did have a very large turnover rate. The hardest part of that – more... job was the hours and having to multitask about six to eight different duties at a time but it paid off by being able to put a smile on all of my guests faces. – less
Server (Former Employee), Reno, NV – March 5, 2013
Pros: had discounts on meals
Cons: sometimes breaks are not offered
A typical day would be to address customers needs in a timely manner. Mostly enjoyed creating an experience that will be remembered and will bring them back in. I learned that serving can be difficult but worth experience. I had great coworkers and we all worked as a team.
