I have been working at Brinker

Pros

the people and the culture make this company a reat place to work all of the time. Flexibility in roles

Cons

When times are tough, unfortunately the restaurant busy suffers and scrambles to stay afloat. That is the case with Brinker

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Please listen to the folks that work in the restaurants every day. Try promoting from within and providing career counseling

    I have been working at Brinker

    Pros

    The company seems to care about their employees, great training and job advancement but you have to work hard. It is great to interact with different people and every day is different.

    Cons

    Quality of life is not a priority. You have to work a lot of hours and are stressed most of the time.
    Your scheduale is at the discretion of your general manager.
     A lot of times your area manager will not listen to your ideas/complaints but just tell your GM that you are complaining.
    Things seem to change frequently. They change for the "better", but then change again a couple months later.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give more reward and recognition to employees who work hard and are dedicated. Stick with one idea instead of changing things every few months. Don't change more than one major thing at a time. A menu change, computer system change and scheduling change all at the same time is not going to be successful.

    I have been working at Brinker

    Pros

    you get good 401 , you get decent pay , you get great meal discounts, they have good vacation policy, fun is encouraged

    Cons

    hard to mantain work to life balance when you have to work varied shift schedule, only two holidays, used to get an extra day off per quarter which allowed for 4- 3 day weekends a year.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    to consider bringing back 3 day weekends, I felt like that offset the fact that holidays were not practicle in rest management
