    I worked at Chili's Grill and Bar full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I've worked at a few chain restaurants (including Fridays) and chili's is the best!! Of course it depends on coworkers and management but the company itself is great to work for. They are always keeping employees updated and keeping things fun with contests and prizes.

    Cons

    It's a typical serving job, lots of moving and running around, schedule can change but if management is good, they'll make sure you're happy with the days you are working and money is set (but always seems to work out for the best)

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up!

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Chili's Grill and Bar.

    Interview

    First interview was with the FOH manager, who asked me questions about my old serving job and then asked my about my availability. A week later my second one was with the General Manager who basically went over the basics with me.
