    I just started about two weeks ago and I can honestly already say I love my job!

    Current Employee - Hostess in Winston-Salem, NC

    I have been working at Chili's part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great management, great environment. Most of my coworkers are extremely friendly and we work great as a team. Since I've started, we've been pretty busy almost every day that I work so I'm not easily bored. The food is delicious and the customers are super friendly!

    Cons

    servers take forever to bus their tables, so it makes the hosts job harder. A couple of my fellow hostesses are lazy and just stand at the host stand and never actually seat customers or wipe off tables so I'm stuck running around the restaurant trying to seat loads of customers on my own.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure that all employees are doing an equal share of work throughout the day/night so that all the pressure to keep up with the crowd isn't on one single person.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Chili's in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied on the Brinkers.com website and about two days later I got an email asking for an interview, I set up and interview for later that week. I showed up to my interview and had about a 5 minute wait until a manager cam to talk to me. The woman who interviewed me was super nice and made the interview short and sweet, she hired me on the spot. She asked for my availability and told me what my starting hourly rate would be. She then scheduled me to have orientation 2 days later. I came back on the day for orientation and had about a 10-15 minute wait until the manager came and spoke with me and the other hostess who was just hired. She went over the dress code, explained what's expected of us, told us about the In-house charity, talked about the possibility of transitioning to a server if we desired, she gave us a tour of the place, had us fill out some forms, and then we were done. I trained for about two days and the training process was great.
