    Pros

    Chili's takes you in like a family. Though there are new rollouts of food almost every month, the company helps notify servers and managers in a timely manner to get their staff ready for new items. Managers, for the most part, are great with helping your shift go smoothly and dealing with stressful situations. I have been an employee for almost 5 years while going to school and Chili's has always been flexible with my schedule. Chili's is like a new family and I highly recommend working here if you enjoy the service industry.

    Cons

    Only con I can think of is the menu changes a lot, but that is about it.

    Positive reinforcement goes a long way, especially when employees have to spend so much time receiving with the potential negativity of guests.

    I worked at Chili's

    Pros

    I really liked the people I worked with. Other companies don't do as good a job as Chilis at making it feel like a family

    Cons

    When people are so close there can be problems. There were some personal problems that got in the way of work but not many

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I wasn't a big fan of "team service"
