Overall, I am super impressed with this company's commitment to its employees. I'm a server at the newest restaurant in MA and already they are allowing me to complete my Certified Beer Server certification free of charge to me. They are also handling the COVID-19 situation incredibly well and in a very fair way to all of its employees. I would highly recommend them!

I love working at a darden restaurant and proud to be a team member in this place! The schedule is flexible and my managers understand my situation of being a full time student and that school is my first priority. I enjoy making connections with the guests, saying jokes and making them feel welcomed.
I liked the flexible hours I was afforded when I waited tables for Darden Restaurants. The staff and management are usually pretty friendly in the off hours. When the rush is on, brace yourself! Serving tables is not for the faint of heart or for those with thin skin. Your co-workers will 'cut throats', and apparently, Darden provides its managers with a bonus program aggressive enough to turn even the kindest of managers into callous, strictly company-minded employees/partner-owners.
