Chili's - a stable job, but not a ton of growth.

Managing Partner (Current Employee)
San Jose, CA

I have been working at Brinker

Pros1. Balanced Scheduling, which is hard to find in the industry.
2. Committment to Quality of Life throughout the company.
3. Fair salaries.
4. Well-known concept, popular within the community.
5. They give back to the communities that they are in through donations, fundraisers, etc.

Cons1. A slow down in growth has caused there to be very few opportunities in all departments.
2. Lack of continuity from store to store, region to region.
3. Lots of shifts in what is important, they have a tendency not to stick to their guns.
4. Very bottom line focused currently.
5. Poorly trained learning managers - no ongoing development.

Advice to Senior Management1. More focus on creating top line sales.
2. Raises based on actual performance of the individual - everyone got the same raises last year!
3. Create better training programs and ongoing training for managers!! Soon!!

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
