    Pros

    Good pay for a temporary job. Management is flexible on scheduling. Good job to have if you are a student.

    Cons

    You lose your weekends and often evenings to work. There is no break in a typical shift. Money is not guaranteed as you rely on tips from customers.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more intelligent people.

    Great management!!! Really willing to work with you and training was really on going!!!

    Cons

    The hours where ridiculous, only way to yet my 40 was to work doubles 3-4 times a week

    Advice to Management

    Give full shifts so people don't have to live there. Nothing wrong with working but really would like to see my family

    I worked at Chili's full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    It's not a great serving job. The tips per table are fairly low. You earn your money through high volume of tables. Its a good job for quick cash while in college. The co-workers are cool because they are all in college as well. This is definitely not a career serving job.

    Cons

    More often than not, management makes matters worse. Restaurant tends to run better with a solid core of waitstaff versus anything management could provide.

    Advice to Management

    Don't play favorites. Give hard workers a chance at upward mobility. I wasn't given an opportunity to run the bar, despite the fact I worked the position at a previous location.

  7. Awesome management and money is not bad, but not the best

    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 Management

    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.
