    I have been working at Chili's part-time

    Pros

    As a server you get a good amount of tables. Around 4-8 tables at a time. Which leads to more money, the management is wonderful, in my opinion, because they're laid back, but will be stern if needed.

    Cons

    The only con I could see is if a server wasn't able to keep up. And that's not the company's fault, but their own.

    I have been working at Chili's full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Good pay compared to competition, Pretty decent hours depending on location, Good culture, Great tools to get the numbers you need and see what you need to do to improve.

    Cons

    Hard labor plan, you will definitely spend a very decent amount of time in position, a lot of the time it is dishwashing, hopping on the line and cooking, or out front bussing tables and running food. High turnover rate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Worry a little less about maxing out your bonus, and a little more about keeping your current guests and employees happy.
