Overall Reviews at Olive Garden

Host/Server | Richmond, VA | Feb 5, 2020
Good place to work overall
I worked here for 4 years and mastered every position in the front of house. The training is top notch and the comradery of the employees is unlike anything I've ever been a part of to date. If you are friendly and are dedicated to the grind, you can succeed financially.
Prosthorough training, food discount, able to swap schedules/shifts at will
Consclosing tasks for certain positions are arduous, can be physically demanding, tips are 100% of your compensation as a server

The opportunities I have had in the last 4 years.
Olive Garden provides flexible hours which allowed me to work while in college and also has provided me the opportunity to learn difference aspects of the business. The staff is friendly and are like family.
ProsFlexable schedules
ConsTypical shift is 4-5 hours

Work life
The work environment is stressful at times but knowing how to do the area of work you are in and working well with your team makes it go smoothly. Management keeps you on your toes to keep the restaurant flowing as efficiently as possible. If you do your job correctly and show you want to learn and grow while also respecting one another, it goes a long way and will be beneficial in the long run.

Restaurant Staff | Maplewood, MN | Mar 31, 2020
Highly flexible hours/shifts, friendly work environment, job security-especially during Covid-19,
Overall I enjoy working for Olive Garden. I was originally hired in 2006, was employed with them for nearly three (3) years, left and came back two (2) years later. When I contacted the General Manager about my return I was welcomed back with open arms and minimal hassle, aside from obligatory paperwork. I have been re-employed with them since 2011. Olive Garden is an Equal Opportunity Employer and as such we have a diverse set of team members at all locations. While there are positions that have specific requirements they do their best to ensure that the right people are place in the right positions. e.g. those with limited mobility or lift/weight bearing restrictions are not made to carry heavy trays of dishes/food; minors are not using or handling state age restricted equipment or products. Many of my co-workers have been with the company for over three (3) years, a several of them are decades into their employment. It makes for an extremely familiar and friendly environment to work in.

Restaurant Staff | Saint Peters, MO | Nov 21, 2019
Only as good as it's managers
Overall, I did like the company. They had decent benefits and the job really wasn't bad. The biggest things that I did not like about the location that I was at was: how quick they were at giving stuff away (I get that that is a big way to help in customer satisfaction if something is not right, but at the same time, if they sit back and give out free stuff at every single little thing, then they are training their customers to learn how to eat out for free) and that when the general manager does not care, then the whole restaurant will go downhill. One manager cannot be made to the the only one to follow protocol and make sure that things are done efficiently and properly, it is like parents playing two different sides and nothing gets resolved. Unfortunately towards the end of my Olive Garden career, it became very hard to continue to care about my job as it seemed as though no one else did.

Prep Cook | Hattiesburg, MS | Oct 12, 2020
It's a restaurant...
When I first started, this company was a great place to work. The standards were very high, so the work demanded your best, but you could make serious bank and your company was like second family. The atmosphere has definitely changed in the past year. Many of the people who'd been there for years and years left and went elsewhere for various reasons. The pay is decent, but if you want to make money, you gotta work nights and weekends mostly , unless you're in the kitchen. It's become very clique-ish as well, which is something I'm not happy about. About half the managers will help in any way possible, but it varies. You work every holiday and weekend.
ProsMoney
ConsNo breaks during actual normal eating times, petty/selfish coworkers, work/life balance is nonexistent

Great place
Frustrating environment because there is always something going wrong!! You can’t grow as an employer there! Most of your work will go noticed but management takes credit

Restaurant Staff | Columbia, MD | Nov 14, 2019
Good place to work, but not for everybody!
Honestly, Olive Garden is a great starting job. One thing I will say is that if you are looking for a serving job to pay your bills, you might want to look at other restaurants, maybe even other Olive Gardens. However, if you are looking for a step towards being prepared to work in a more high-grade position, or you're in college and just want some bump in customer service with some money on the side, then Olive Garden Columbia is the place for you. Coworkers are kind and willing to help you. Just be sure of what you need from a job before you apply at this specific Olive Garden- sometimes hours get cut unexpectedly, that's the only bad thing I have to say. Great place to work, many opportunities for growth if you are open to receiving them.
