    Pros

    Coworkers are great although over worked also.

    Cons

    Corporate expects managers to cook and do hourly functions all day to save money. All they care about is the bottom line. No concern for the staff. Bonuses are almost impossible to obtain, no sick days, no holiday pay etc.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Corporate needs to show appreciation for the people working in the field. Start caring about the people making your money.

  9. What you'd expect at a corporate restaurant

    I have been working at Chili's full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    fast-paced and team oriented, ziosks are a perk (tablet at the table where guests can explore different parts of the menu, play games, and process payment)

    Cons

    management gets too busy tracking the numbers to actually be able to manage employees sometimes

    I have been working at Chili's full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    We have a lot of regulars and I love my co workers and managers. Money is best on the week days when the grill can handle the crowd and the clientele are a bit more high class than on the weekends.

    Cons

    SO MUCH SIDE WORK. Many hours cleaning and rolling silverware, all at 2.13 an hour. Plates and trays are very heavy, so I ache. All the time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire the people who are incapable of doing their jobs. This is not a charity. It's very frustrating when my tips go down because the grill can't get food out. Servers get dogged out more for customer dissatisfaction than the grill does-even though it's the grills fault.
