  • Job Qualifications Must be at least 16 years of age

  • Perform the Physical Demands Remain on your feet for several hours at a time, lift up to 20 pounds, bend, kneel, stoop, and sweep frequently

BIG plans are on the horizon for Red Lobster. Our team and restaurants are great today, but our future is even better. There is no better time than now to join the Red Lobster Family!

Great Seafood

You can be proud of the food you serve. The tremendous variety of seafood makes us the perfect destination for seafood lovers. Our annual "Ultimate Events" like Lobsterfest, Crabfest, and Endless Shrimp are more widely known than practically any other restaurant.

You will serve fish at a premium standard. We are a global pioneer and an industry leader in Seafood Sustainability.

With seafood served from over 30 countries, Red Lobster has a long standing commitment to sustainable fishing and farming. We are a founder and current member of the Global Aquaculture Alliance and a current member of National Fisheries Institute. Our team is proud to be known for not serving any endangered species on the menu and for buying only from fisheries that are sustainably managed through BAP (Best Aquaculture Practices) standards.

Great People

You will work at a destination for celebration. Our restaurants have a rich history of hosting birthdays, anniversaries, receptions, reunions, and other important memorable occasions.

You are part of an amazing family. Our restaurants are a place where you can both make friends and find a mentor.

It's important that our family of team members flourish, learn and grow. Our RL Cares program, for instance, is designed to help team members with unplanned expenses in times of great need.

You give back to the community. Our RL Shares program donates millions of pounds of food to Food Banks and Food Shelters across the country making a significant difference for the homeless and hungry in the communities where we operate.
