I worked at Chili's part-time for more than 5 years

Pros

The best part of the company is the atmosphere. I worked at a Utah location all the way through college - it was a great way to make extra money and get the social interaction that double-majoring didn't allow. Chili's makes a community of its employees. Right before I started, a host/bus staff member (a friend of a friend of mine and a brother of two other employees) passed away, and Chili's paid for his funeral and offered emotional support to all of the mourning employees. Great company.

Cons

Because it is casual dining, occasionally you have to work with people who don't take any pride in their work and that can be frustrating. Also a little cult-y, but not terribly so. As a trainer, I indoctrinated new employees in a way that sometimes felt cheesy, but it really was like a family.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep on keepin' on.
