    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.

    Pros

    Accommodating scheduling.
    Fun environment
    Employees that become fast friends.
    Good to great tips.
    Management that understands what it's like to go through a "dinner rush" and is there to help you when things get tough.
    Great benefits for part-time employees like 50% meals!
    Flexible work schedule
    Overall an incredibly fun work experience

    Cons

    Outside of the occasional BAD tipper, nothing to complain about.
