    I worked at Chili's Grill and Bar full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Good teamwork, it was easy to move into bartending quickly, great discounts on food

    Cons

    Casual chain restaurants are having a hard time right now finding their identity, Chili's included. There was a better sense of identity when I started in 2008, but the menu got too large, the food quality went down, and we haven't been able to recover a lot of the customers that we once had.
