    I worked at Chili's full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    One of the best things working at Chili's is the teamwork! When you work with a good partner on the floor, your shift tends to run very smoothly. If you happen to get family orientated managers, then you've scored big time! They are more than willing to work around family!

    Cons

    One of the things that I disliked the most: working with a weak team member. The trainer is your most trusted resource. A good trainer will not let you fail!! If you have a problem with your trainer, let management know.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The management team I worked with was GREAT!! Every manager knew the importance of family!

    I have been working at Chili's full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    fast-paced and team oriented, ziosks are a perk (tablet at the table where guests can explore different parts of the menu, play games, and process payment)

    Cons

    management gets too busy tracking the numbers to actually be able to manage employees sometimes

    Rely on your instincts more than the quantitative data from the guest surveys. You guys rock!
