    Pros

    Chilis is indeed a family oriented place. For the most part your management team if they like you will work hard to help you unless you have a poor management team which can happen during transition.

    Cons

    Management can let you down very quickly. They will pretend they have given you all the tools but in reality they have not. You can bypass this by talking with the right person which is sometimes hard to do but can be done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your servers. If you take care of your servers they will take care of your guest and you wont have as many issues.

    I worked at Chili's

    Pros

    Chilis was the easiest restaurant that I have worked at. The food is good. It is easy to flip tables quickly.

    Cons

    The main challenge is working with incompetent co-workers. Also, there is no gratuity available for large parties.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give employees more incentives.

    Pros

    very happy place with very friendly people....always loved going to work.it was always positive and i am very passionate about cooking.

    Cons

    i was very comfortable in every aspect of working for my company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    i would love a job with benefits but some times it comes with hard work and time which i am willing to accomplish. i welcome a entry level position to proudly work my way up the the ladder.I have always landed leadership roles due to my hard work and determination. I don't consider time off policy.

    I worked at Chili's part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Never got denied a raise, worked around my student schedule, and genuinely cared about the employees. Good FOOD and good "team-bonding" outings!

    Cons

    Stressful workplace, not enough people on busy nights, and sometimes strict on rules on when you can have food discounts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make your regional/uppermost management work there on a busy Fri/Sat/Sun few times a year and personally employees what they need!

    I have been working at Chili's full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    If you're outgoing like I am, this is definitely the place to work for. This company really cares about you. The managers are always willing to help.

    Cons

    Working holidays like Christmas Eve. Sometimes working in the resteraunt industry there will be days where you make more money than the day before or vice versa.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work!

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

    Pros

    -good pay (when busy)
    -fun people to work with
    -flexible schedule and easy to ask off
    -good discount on food for employees

    Cons

    -Intense promotion of GEM surveys that could lead to you not being scheduled if you don't get enough
    -St. Jude fundraiser in September is great but customers are absolutely bombarded. I wouldn't donate either.
    -Management plays favorites
    -Shifts can be very long

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop being so money hungry. I had a manager tell me they don't give discounts to soldiers in uniform because they don't have a gun. And guns can protect us if we get robbed. That's why police officers on duty get a discount.
