I enjoyed the people I worked with but the management was lacking
Server (Former Employee), Staunton, VAAugust 7, 2014
Pros: great food, great people
Cons: bad management and bad communication
I actually had a great time working at Red Lobster until about the time I left. My co-workers were amazing and I am so thankful that my first job experience was with people like them. They taught me people skills and team skills that I will remember with every job I have. The management however did not keep their systems in straight and did not check – more... in with each other when important decisions were made. The reason I left Red Lobster is because they no longer wanted to work with school schedule even though it was discussed many times. But overall it was not bad working there it just was not a good business to work for. – less

Server assistant (Former Employee), Odessa, TXAugust 6, 2014
Pros: great benefits, 50% off food, worked with school hours
Cons: understaffed
A typical day at Red Lobster consisted with me getting there before opening then stocking the salad bar and as the doors opened and the customers came in we would get to work. Me, being an assistant helped several servers with there functions such as but not limited to taking drink orders, serving the food and busing the tables. My job relied heavily – more... on team work as I needed to be in constant communication with other servers on their current status if they needed help with any of their tables or such. In Odessa we were heavily under staffed so occasionally I would help in the bar and the kitchen as well. My managers were the best as well often doing lower level jobs to help out with our under staffed predicament. Overall Red Lobster was a great work experience where I leaned so much! – less

Prep Specialist (Former Employee), Terre Haute, INJuly 30, 2014
Cons: no breaks, no pto
This was a great job that required a fast paced worker and someone who is willing to spend most of every day for the entire week at the store. I learned about seafood, and a new form of time management. My coworkers were a fun group of individuals who were all much older than me. Which caused me to worry about my future. I was told that I would be able – more... to move up through the employment ladder, and work my way into a management field one day, that was never brought up again after I was hired. – less

Waitress/Server (Current Employee), Yonkers, NYJuly 26, 2014
Pros: large crew
A typical day at work depending on the evening it could be stressful at times, fun, and exhausting. Our management team is superior, they really try to be involved with the team. It could be a struggle when your working with such a large team. The hardest part is remembering everything so that each one of your guest is satisfied. The most enjoyable – more... part is working together and meeting new people everyday. – less
