    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!

    Pros

    - They make sure you are well trained and feel comfortable with your responsibilities
    - They are constantly growing and reaching out

    Cons

    As you would expect working in any restaurant, you sometimes have to deal with unhappy customers for one reason or another.
    It's sometimes competitive to get holidays off when everybody is trying to ask off at the same time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing!
