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

    Pros

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

    Cons

    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.

    I have been working at Chili's Grill and Bar full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, maximize income in short time, meet life long friends. 401k, yearly bonus if you averaged 30 hours, part time and full time insurance offered.

    Cons

    Income can fluctuate so budget for slow times, no paid vacations on yearly bonus, unlimited time off if you want but with no income

    Advice to Management

    Hold everyone accountable. Don't expect more from the workers and less from the lazy workers. Consistency is key.

    Staffing in casual dining is becoming more and more difficult. Often have to work a position. Some late hours.

    Focus on the basics. Too many food options.
