    Pros

    Chili's takes you in like a family. Though there are new rollouts of food almost every month, the company helps notify servers and managers in a timely manner to get their staff ready for new items. Managers, for the most part, are great with helping your shift go smoothly and dealing with stressful situations. I have been an employee for almost 5 years while going to school and Chili's has always been flexible with my schedule. Chili's is like a new family and I highly recommend working here if you enjoy the service industry.

    Cons

    Only con I can think of is the menu changes a lot, but that is about it.

    Pros

    This company was great to work for, the money for the work was great, I learned a lot really fast, they hired me without previous experience

    Cons

    It is a customer service oriented job and every customer service job has to deal with bad customers at times.

    Good times as a chilihead

    I worked at Chili's

    Pros

    I really liked the people I worked with. Other companies don't do as good a job as Chilis at making it feel like a family

    Cons

    When people are so close there can be problems. There were some personal problems that got in the way of work but not many

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I wasn't a big fan of "team service"

    Pros

    very happy place with very friendly people....always loved going to work.it was always positive and i am very passionate about cooking.

    Cons

    i was very comfortable in every aspect of working for my company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    i would love a job with benefits but some times it comes with hard work and time which i am willing to accomplish. i welcome a entry level position to proudly work my way up the the ladder.I have always landed leadership roles due to my hard work and determination. I don't consider time off policy.

    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.
