Red Lobster is proud to be a business where our team members want to grow, develop and succeed. These numbers tell so much more than data and statistics. Behind these numbers are training programs that help our teams succeed; incredible leaders that elevate and grow their team members; teams that work together to make sure everyone has the opportunity to accomplish their goals.

We spoke to Ashlee Geier, a newly minted General Manager at our Coral Springs, FL location, to get her perspective on why our numbers are so strong. She shares some of the many reasons she’s chosen Red Lobster for her career growth since 2004:

  • The total experience: “Red Lobster is continuously evolving. Not only has Red Lobster given me great work experience, it has also grown me as an individual. It’s instilled in me a set of core values which I apply not only inside the workplace but in my day to day life.”
  • Our Core Values: “Red Lobster has continued to prove that it cares about the heart and soul of the operation. They care about their people. They take the time to listen and make necessary changes to allow us to best take care of the guest.”
  • We’re an innovative company: “Red Lobster has shown me over the years that we will continue to be competitive in the industry. We will strive to stay relevant, from new menu concepts to uniform standards to discovering new ways to delight guests. We’re a solid company with a solid foundation and will continue to be where people come for seafood now and for generations to come.”
  • We’re looking ahead: “My future looks bright. I see myself in the next five years hopefully growing into a Director position. Growth opportunities with Red Lobster are endless if you perform and have the passion and drive behind all that you do. You have the ability to be successful with this company.”
