    I worked at Chili's Grill and Bar full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Loved my coworkers and management. Worked there for 3 years and made lifelong friends.

    Cons

    There is always drama in the restaurant industry, and high turnover because of it if you're not in the "popular" group. At the Chili's I worked at it was split half/half between people who had been there for a long time and people who usually only lasted a few weeks.

    Advice to Management

    Work to make the restaurant less segregated so turnover doesn't happen as frequently.


  4. "Decent place to work"

    Management is not always on the same page

    I worked at Chili's Grill and Bar part-time

    Pros

    The job itself was easy. With and different personalities it made fun and challenging sometimes. Very busy so able to make lots of tips.

    Cons

    One manager would give preference to certain girls he likes, with the best schedule. Had high turnover and they would let employersthat have been there a long time go at the drop of a hat, instead of try to retain them over a tiny mishap. There was no loyalty to long time employees. Very difficult to advance up from server to assistant manager, youd have to be there for 6 yrs or plus.

    Pros

    Flexible scheduling, great team, team work, benefits. Everyone gets along well. We always worked together as a team. It was great.

    It is very fast paced. If you aren't up for that, don't even bother. I like busy and fast paced but not everyone does.
