    Pros

    Met some of the best people I know while working at Chili's.

    Cons

    The brand is very confused. It is not sure what is wants to be to it's consumers. Working in operations, and then to upper management, there was a stark contrast in reality as to what was expected from the operators. The parameters that are given vs what is expected is just not realistic. Managers would be crying daily because the stress that would be placed on their shoulders was too high. The menu is ridiculously large and impossible to execute properly.

    Advice to Management

    Figure out what kind of restaurant you want to be. Listen to your operators honest feedback. Labor parameters are just too tight to operate a menu with 120 items. The fact that the menu cannot be executed properly and timely is why you are losing guests. And guess what....Bussers help keep your restaurants clean at very minimal cost. Big mistake to eliminate them.

    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.
