    I worked at Chili's full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    It's not a great serving job. The tips per table are fairly low. You earn your money through high volume of tables. Its a good job for quick cash while in college. The co-workers are cool because they are all in college as well. This is definitely not a career serving job.

    Cons

    More often than not, management makes matters worse. Restaurant tends to run better with a solid core of waitstaff versus anything management could provide.

    Advice to Management

    Don't play favorites. Give hard workers a chance at upward mobility. I wasn't given an opportunity to run the bar, despite the fact I worked the position at a previous location.

  7. Great few years.

    Pros

    employee meal, ok managers,ok employees,long hours,late nights

    Cons

    unreal work load for the pay i worked at cross creek mall and it made unreal amounts of money like in the neighborhood of 100,000 a month which most people know if you worked in the field is real good but it's even better when you can make that much with only two or three cooks. I worked there for a year and only received a .50 cent raise and i wouldn't recommend this job to anyone it was the single most hated job i ever had

    Advice to Management

    pay your employees what there worth and stop acting like any one side of kitchen is harder than the other cause at any one moment during a shift any side of kitchen can be hard or harder

  9. It was work

    Pros

    A place to work and I needed money

    Cons

    Constantly understaffed and stressful.
    When we close the manager has to run a report that takes 15 minutes and would constantly ask me to clock out so he could run the report but I wasnt done cleaning yet.

    Advice to Management

    dont make the dishwasher cut onions and peppers on busy nights.

  10. Awesome management and money is not bad, but not the best
