    I have been working at Chili's full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    We have a lot of regulars and I love my co workers and managers. Money is best on the week days when the grill can handle the crowd and the clientele are a bit more high class than on the weekends.

    Cons

    SO MUCH SIDE WORK. Many hours cleaning and rolling silverware, all at 2.13 an hour. Plates and trays are very heavy, so I ache. All the time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire the people who are incapable of doing their jobs. This is not a charity. It's very frustrating when my tips go down because the grill can't get food out. Servers get dogged out more for customer dissatisfaction than the grill does-even though it's the grills fault.

    Pros

    Flexible scheduling, delicious but inexpensive food, popular restaurant. Easy to advance if interested and hours are plentiful.

    Cons

    (Shelton, CT location) Employees and managers do not act professionally. Rude comments and occasional outbursts can be heard from the kitchen. Workspace is often disorganized. Lack of respect among teams.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be less tolerable of disrespect among team members and set a positive example yourselves.

    Pros

    Lots of training supplied for inexperienced servers.

    Cons

    Seniority = a free pass to basically do whatever you want.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It wouldn't kill you to actually do something about the few "bad" apples on your staff, instead of ignoring that they are a problem because of their seniority.

    I worked at Chili's

    Pros

    The Franchisee is great to their employees. Christmas party for managers children, with Santa handing out gifts. Turkeys and Thanksgiving and Hams at Easter. Stable company, on going manager training modules.

    Cons

    A lot of employees are new to the restaurant industry, Servers to the Managers. The fact that there is a great training, a lot leave for a fine dining of higher end concept. A lot of turn over. The Guests at this concept can be very difficult to deal with. It is hard to get a GM position.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be careful when hiring GM's from outside the concept. When managers have to train their boss it does not foster a sense of respect.
