    I have been working at Chili's Grill and Bar (Less than a year)


    very nice quality of life the systems are easy to follow. It is very relaxed and has a family feel,


    Even with very reasonable work hours you need to stay on the move to keep up and leave on time. Oh wait that is a good thing.
