    I worked at Chili's full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Chilis offers okay pay, great friends and lasting relationships. They have health benefits for full time employees. Some of the managers were very understanding. Experience.

    Cons

    Chilis has the most unorganized management I have ever seen. 6-14 hour shifts on your feet. Rude guests. Have to use a tray...

    Advice to Management

    Management should be more organised. They should also allow servers more time to eat between shifts. One 15 minute lunch break at 3 in the afternoon until 2 at bight isnt very fun...

    Pros

    Company is focused on employees happiness and income.

    Cons

    Kitchen of the future is not good design.

    Advice to Management

    Slow down on the changes, your constantly changing focus and menus, the kitchen can't keep up, no one can.

    Pros

    Employees get 50% on meals. When dining with others, you get 50% for up to 4 guests! Free training meals and free beverages while you work.

    Cons

    Low pay depending on your position. Servers have it better, but it can be awful for them as well depending on the season. Long hours without breaks. Sometimes there isn't enough help during a shift.

    Advice to Management

    A food runner, server assistant, rover and a busser at each shift would make shifts go smoother. At least two 10 to 15-minute breaks would be really helpful. I know that adding these four people per shift would increase labor, but you guys are killing us. My back and feet never hurt so much in all my life! We need breaks and we need to be able to efficiently share the load.

    Pros

    Management is awesome. They really care about us as individuals. Very fun work place

    Cons

    To many new menu items. Need more managers. For a 3 months period we only had two managers

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work. You guys do a wonderful job for the lack in numbers of managers that you have been offered

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

    Pros

    Chili's was always wiling to work with my schedule. I was never over or under worked. Which was very nice because when I had this job I was at a busy time in my young life. They also payed $9 per hour which is much more then minimum wage.

    Cons

    Unfortunately the weekends got busy, so, on many occasions I had to work very late nights. Which when you have a family that works in the day time and as soon as they get off you go to work and they when you get off they are all in bed that is rough.

    Advice to Management

    For the hosts it is often hard to do the jobs of both the host and the busier. i would suggest hiring a busier. That way the gusts can be seated faster and the host can focus on hosting as well as the servers can focus on serving. 4

    Pros

    decent pay scale and Benefits

    Cons

    On paper the job sounds good. In reality the Quality of life statements are not up held. Upper Management does not follow Company Policies , even on important issues..

    Advice to Management

    Follow thru on Quality of life statements-a simple review of management schedules would show you they are not being upheld.
