Whether you work for Chili’s® Grill & Bar, Maggiano’s Little Italy® or as part of our Restaurant Support Team you’re part of our family and we will do everything we can to help you succeed.
It doesn’t matter if you think of your job as a stepping-stone on your path to glory or an investment in your long-term professional development, we’ve got great opportunities that are perfect for you! Yes, you’ll work hard. But more important, you’ll work happy. We have been playing restaurant for over 40 years and having just as much fun as day one!
Dallas-based Brinker International, Inc. is one of the world’s leading casual dining restaurant companies. Founded in 1975, Brinker produces $2.9 billion in sales and owns, operates, or franchises more than 1,600 restaurants across 30 countries and two territories under the names Chili’s® Grill & Bar and Maggiano’s Little Italy®.
Our Restaurant Support Center supports both our national and international business. We are nestled in the wooded North Dallas community, conveniently located minutes from the highway, shopping and local restaurants. Our multi- building campus boast vibrant and colorful walls while the main lobby welcomes Guests and Team Members from around the world with a wall of history, a basketball hoop and a 1,700 pound ruby-red Chili pepper.
While the campus is beautiful, Brinker’s true pride is in our People. In fact, the Restaurant Support Center is honored to have a retention rate of 87% percent and is a proud winner of the 2016 Best Places to Work award! Perhaps what we love most about our business is our open-arms culture; it’s exciting to see our forward-thinking BrinkerHeads challenge themselves daily in order to better serve each other, our communities and our Guests to create the best life.
MAKING PEOPLE FEEL SPECIAL
At the Restaurant Support Center in our hometown of Dallas, Texas, our number one priority is to make the lives of our restaurant teams the very best they can be. The future of every BrinkerHead is in our hands. That’s why we challenge ourselves to push harder and further every day. To see how we can better serve each other, our communities and our Guests … and make everyone feel special.
We provide hundreds of virtual, online, in-person and on-the-job learning activities to help you grow in your role and advance along your desired career path. Your development can also include mentoring, taking on stretch assignments and working with cross functional groups to broaden your skill set. When you’re ready to move ahead in your career, or sharpen the skills you already have, we’ll make sure you get the right training to meet your goals.
Our campus is nestled in a wooded North Dallas community, where we’ve been able to create an atmosphere that supports working happy and embracing your best life. That can mean playing hoops in the lobby, helping to grow vegetables in the Norman Brinker Community Garden or playing outside on Bring Your Dog to Work Day. You can also have fun at the many family festivals, cookouts, field days and other events we host each year.
The Brinker Family Fund (BFF) was created to help Team Members dealing with serious illnesses, death and natural disasters. Many BrinkerHeads choose to make a small paycheck deduction to help finance the BFF. To date, we’ve donated over $15 million to 5,000+ Team Members and families who needed our help to make it through a tough time.
We support Team Members who donate time and money to causes about which they are truly passionate. Our Passion Points program matches up to 40 unpaid volunteer hours with a donation of $500 per Team Member per year. We also have Passion Bucks, which matches a Team Member donation of at least $100 with a company donation of $500 per year. Team Members can participate in both programs for a maximum match of $1,000 per fiscal year.
As a company, we continually seek out new ways to live our purpose. BrinkerHeads believe that achieving our best selves has a lot to do with finding the right balance of CAREER, SOCIAL, FINANCIAL, PHYSICAL and COMMUNITY wellbeing. What this means is:
WE’VE GOT THE GOOD STUFF
When you join us, you’ll be rewarded with some seriously awesome perks. It’s just our way of ensuring that our BrinkerHeads are well taken care of, and that there’s no better place to work (and play) than with us.

I have been working at Brinker part-time (More than 5 years)
Very flexible with work hours and love the company itself! I have been serving for Brinker (Chili's) for almost 7 years now part time. It was a great stepping stone in helping me throughout my college career. The pay is great for the amount of hours you work as server. I also transitioned to another location during a change in schools and the transferring process is a breeze. I have had multiple coworkers transfer to many other states without a hiccup.
Sometimes you will work with managers and/or coworkers that aren't your favorite but you can have that happen in any company you work in. I can't say I have anything specific about the company that I have a problem with.
Advice to Management
Keep doing what you're doing!
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Brinker (Dallas, TX).
The process was not hard, they didn't ask too many technical questions. Just focus on your resume and the job description. You should know some PC software skills, because they maybe test you with some easy questions.
