Providing Pathways for Growth
For many, a job with one of our brands is the start of a rewarding career with our company. For others, it is a stepping stone to further education or other pursuits. The skills and experience we provide help our team members grow and succeed with Darden, or wherever their paths take them.
A central tenet of our approach to team member development is a commitment to promoting from within. And — with more than 1,900 locations and 8,000 leadership positions across our restaurants — we can provide a pathway for thousands of individuals across the country to advance from entry-level jobs into management roles.
The list of team members who have built successful careers with Darden after beginning in an entry-level role is long… really long. Helping others realize their potential and achieve their dreams is one of the things that makes the restaurant industry special, and we are proud to share just a few examples below. We refresh them regularly, so be sure to check back often for new stories.
