  1. Health Insurance

    Medical coverage is effective on your first day of employment, with just a $100 deductible and a dental plan. You're also provided with the option to purchase short-term disability insurance, which offers weekly benefits for up to 1 year, and/or sign-up for $20,000 in term life insurance, which pays double if death is accidental.


    Eat at any Olive Garden or Darden restaurant concept (when you are not working) and get a 25% dining discount for you and up to 7 friends or family members.

    Eye Care

    Receive discounts on eye exams, lenses, frames and contact lenses through our vision plan.


    Full-time employees get a week of vacation after one year, two weeks after three years and up to three weeks after seven years.


    Learn to speak Italian… or any other language, for that matter. Get low interest educational loans for you and your family through our ConSern Student Loan Program.


    Start planning for tomorrow with our Darden 401k savings plan. You can participate immediately, and Darden will begin matching your contributions after one year of employment.
