    I have been working at Brinker part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    When you do work the tips are good and seating of tables are in rotation insuring fairness to all servers.

    Cons

    Part time only, it is almost impossible to become a full time employee. I have been trying to be full time for over a year now.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management would be to allow full time employment in the industry to the employees who show they will be there for a long period of time.

    I have been working at Brinker part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    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.

    Cons

    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!
