Busy job that will help you get by
Server (Current Employee), Novi, MINovember 14, 2014
Pros: the tips
Cons: lack of team work
A typical day at work is usually very busy, stressful, and can get aggravating. I've learned how to greet tables in a better manner and how to coop with a diverse crowd of people. Management is fair. They do what they need to get done in order to meet the standards of the district managers. My co-workers are alright. Everyone seems to be in it for themselves – more... but overall we tend to work together when its needed. The hardest part of the job is being able to get your work done when others don't do their own job. When teamwork is hard to build its hard to get by. The most enjoyable part of my job is the people that come in there. Different lifestyles and different experiences at each table is very interesting. – less

Pantry (Former Employee), Mishawaka, INNovember 7, 2014
everyday is always a rush and busy, very fast paced so you have to know what you are doing and think ahead, time management is helpful. I do enjoy my job, the toll of everyone breathing down your neck sometimes can be a bit much from time to time but over all a good place to work.

Line Cook-Certified Grill Master (Current Employee), White Marsh, MDNovember 7, 2014
Red lobster is a fast paced and enjoyable place to work. The job does has it moments when things get crazy but that's only when we don't work as a team. Management is a little difficult to work with but when it gets ruff they are they to help. My coworkers and I are like a well oil machine we get the job done.

Great place to work
Hostess - Server - Service Assistant (Former Employee), Newport News, VANovember 4, 2014
A typical day involved ensuring customer satisfaction and ensuring the restaurant was prepared for business. Here, I learned specialized time management skills. Most of my co-workers were easy to get along with; most of them always carried positive attitudes and I really enjoyed working with them. The hardest part of this job was the fast-paced environment – more... right off the bat. This was only hard at first because I was learning time management skills, but after the skill was learned there was really no "hard" part to the job. The most enjoyable part of my job was ensuring customer satisfaction and the customers' reactions to my services. – less
