    Pros

    One of the best things working at Chili's is the teamwork! When you work with a good partner on the floor, your shift tends to run very smoothly. If you happen to get family orientated managers, then you've scored big time! They are more than willing to work around family!

    Cons

    One of the things that I disliked the most: working with a weak team member. The trainer is your most trusted resource. A good trainer will not let you fail!! If you have a problem with your trainer, let management know.

    Advice to Management

    The management team I worked with was GREAT!! Every manager knew the importance of family!

    The management was very easy to deal with and worked around my college schedule.

    Pros

    Co workers. Management pretty cool and easy to get along with.

    Cons

    Customers are so cheap at this location. Tips as a server can always be bald at times but this location is never good. Great servers walk with less than $50 on weekend night.

    Advice to Management

    Stop with the promotions, it bring in the worst of the worst.

    Pros

    Coworkers are great although over worked also.

    Cons

    Corporate expects managers to cook and do hourly functions all day to save money. All they care about is the bottom line. No concern for the staff. Bonuses are almost impossible to obtain, no sick days, no holiday pay etc.

    Advice to Management

    Corporate needs to show appreciation for the people working in the field. Start caring about the people making your money.
