New hires in Darden’s MIT program put their hospitality education and previous work experience to great use as they rotate through hourly and management positions in both the front and back of house. As developing leaders, participants have the opportunity to grow – personally and professionally – every step of the way.
MITs learn about manager’s responsibilities in our kitchens, where our teams hand craft the great dishes our guests love, and in the front of the house, where our teams deliver the type of exceptional service that keeps our guests coming back for more. The program allows participants to expand and hone their skillsets in the areas of restaurant operations, business management, and leading teams.
Restaurant Management Internships
Restaurant management internships are available at Darden restaurants across the country. Internships offer a structured, rotational, hands-on experience in all aspects of restaurant operations. Interns are scheduled 40 hours per week during the multi-week summer program and are paid $12 an hour. Housing and transportation are the responsibility of the intern.
