    Pros

    - great teamwork - awesome communication - fun environment - never a dull moment

    Cons

    - sometimes managers get really stressed out and can take it out on some employees--especially servers - no bussers, hosts and servers have to prebuss and wipe down all tables

    I have been working at Chili's part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Despite some belief, the company treats their employees well. Can be a fun atmosphere, too.

    Cons

    Cut jobs over the years causing more and more work for servers for the same pay rate. Low base pay - tipped minimum wage.

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

    Pros

    The hours are great! It's really easy to procure regulars and to make easy and quick money. I avatar about 19.56 an hour.

    Cons

    They call you in all the time! Breaks ate a thing of the past. You must be very self sufficient to be able to thrive in this restaurant.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to your employees. Ask questions and always be available to help, whether we ask for it or not. Just don't expect us to be completely self sufficient.
