Negative Outlook
No opinion of CEO

I have been working at Chili's part-time (Less than a year)

Pros

People are nice, and management can be ok. Hours are pretty good if you can convince them to let you work certain hours.

Cons

Servers treat people terribly. Not just other co-workers in the restaurant but also people they are serving. People come in to work and leave within 3 months. Even when I was there for 4 months, 10 people had come and gone. Hostess are real jerks, only care about themselves.

Advice to Management

Do better interview process to get a sense of the real person.

    I have been working at Chili's full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    tends to be a high volume restaurant, so quantity of customers should help make for high sales affordable food well-known

    Cons

    like staff, management is a revolving door. Extremely high turn-over rate customers tend to flood in for the 2-20 deal... higher volume... lower check averages

    Advice to Management

    realize your hardworking employees hold significant value to your success

    I worked at Chili's full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    If you actually learn what they try to teach you in training, it will help in ANY job you have afterwards. Yes, even that 'real' job you're after. Great serving job for beginners. Restaurant managers get a lot of flack, but they do really well, considering what is expected of them by the company. They are basically adult babysitters.

    Cons

    Turn and burn atmosphere. Don't expect to make 20% at every table (some stores are exceptions to this rule..). Instead, keep your section flowing, so that you can make the most of their excellent branding. It's hard not to get caught up in the negative attitude. Note: NOBODY owes you a 20% tip. If you didn't make good money on one table, try to make it up on the next one.

    Advice to Management

    Mandatory meetings at 7am are silly. Find a better way to train and communicate with your staff.
