    Strongly recommend! Great culture! Professional development opportunities!

    Talent Acquisition (Current Employee)
    Dallas, TX

    ProsBrinker is a great company to work for! The company offers a flexible work schedule, has a warm and inviting environment and truly cares about its team members. Also, I love how the company is committed to giving back to the community. From a professional standpoint, Brinker offers team members the opportunity to grow professionally and continue to advance their careers!!

    ConsBrinker has more of an unstructured environment. This is great, but the only downfall is that there are moments when expectations become a little fuzzy. However, on the upside, Brinker has tools in place that help us work through these communication challenges.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Jump on the chance to work for this company

    Accounting (Former Employee)
    Dallas, TX

    ProsReally sorry I left this great company. I think you will find that you will be rewarded with wonderful benefits and fair pay. They will provide you with an excellent training program,

    ConsPromotions from within were a little slow forthcoming and the the only reason I left was offered another position of interest with another company first.

    Great college job

    Server (Current Employee)
    New Braunfels, TX

    Proschilis was a great place to work at for the amount of tips you recieve for the work complete. great summer time money while in school. not much responsibility.

    Consthe main con is that during the school year business tends to slow down quiet a bit. my recommendation is be great at your job and you will get closing shifts which in turn means more money.

    Advice to Senior Managementmy advice to managers is give credit to your best employees. Also be consistent in your management direction, employees follow by example.
