    Pros

    Training is detailed. Friendly people to work with. Multiple managers so if you don't like one there are a few others you'll like. Brinker is the company that owns Chili's and it really takes care of their employees.

    Cons

    Lots of side work. Smoke from the fajitas makes your hair and clothes smell. Take a shower after work and you'll be fine.

    Advice to Management

    Give many people the opportunity to close lunch and dinner shifts not just the same people with seniority.

    Pros

    great benifits, company is going in a great direction, higher pay range than competitors, they will listen to your complaints

    Cons

    you work a lot of hours and your schedule will be all over the place. there will be no consistency with your schedule.

    Advice to Management

    need to pay more attention with the way your managers are scheduled to ensure a quality of life. many managers are getting burned out because of hectic schedules and no consistency.

    Pros

    The managers always try to work with your schedule, other employees have fun working with each other and always meeting new people

    Cons

    Sometimes expecting unreal achievements for employees. Show appreciation more. Managers expect to just have followers without questioning the point in the action.

    Advice to Management

    Work together with the staff to help run a smoother shift. Doesn't hurt to step up before everyone is getting behind to prevent late checks.

    Pros

    Co-workers were very friendly and awesome. Management was laid-back and fun but still kept their professionalism

    Cons

    Unorganized at times where our tasks weren't clear as to whom they were assigned to. Sometimes I would be assigned 3 double shifts in a row, which was really tiring.

    Advice to Management

    I liked the friendliness of the management. The environment was fun and energetic. And please don't give anyone 3 doubles in a row!

    Pros

    A great company to work for who truly live out their Mission, Vision, and Passion!

    Cons

    It is a con for the entire industry and that is the strain on the work/life balance. It can be difficult to find that balance in this industry.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to live and breathe the! To be a part of this company as it embraced the OZ Principals was a beautiful process to be a part of!
