    Chili's South Elgin, great for a host!

    Host (Current Employee) South Elgin, IL

    ProsYou get paid well just to show people to their tables, don't have to do much, great part time job

    ConsYou stand throughout your entire shift, which can be tiring if you work all day. Servers get angry for things you cannot control at times.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe servers don't need that much supervision, the managers are always on their cases to do better but they're at their best when left alone.

    Very Friendly work environment

    Hostess (Current Employee) Westminster, CO

    ProsEveryone that works here is so nice, as a hostess it can be complicated on busy nights but it's still manageable. Rude customers come and go but manager's make it worth it.

    ConsBusy nights and rude people. We have to help bus sometimes but it's not horrible. You have to be careful of how you talk to people.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe westminster management team is amazing!

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen more and realize we deal with the customers a lot more than u do.
