    I worked at Brinker

    Pros

    It was a great place to learn the fundamentals. At times the company was very organized and planned ahead. Some of the policies were strict and easy to follow.

    Cons

    Very little regard for amount of hours worked by salaried employees. I worked 100 hour weeks and was never given any additional time off.

    When new standards or policies were introduced there were few tools available to institute them. One year Catering was made a critical component of our job but no catering training or supplies were offered.

     In the last few years of my employment they began making rash decisions with little forethought other than, "We must do this because our competitor is doing it."

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Area Directors can be good or bad but Brinker had several poor Area Directors who were responsible for many of the better people leaving. These same Area Directors OFTEN broke the very rules they maintained (such as fraternization) and showed poor leadership. Who is managing the mid-managers?
