    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.

    Great fast way to make money that you take home every night. Everyone is very helpful and provides the help you need when asked for

    Pros

    Self-paced, money motivated environment. Beautiful, personable girls, you will make friends. Jukebox in lounge area.

    Cons

    Hard on your body, very miniscule paychecks. 2 for $20's.

    Advice to Management

    Hiring an AM dishwasher will save you money associated with in house breakage costs, but more than anything the priceless notion that you will have a smoothly ran shift start to finish with a real, live person filling each rounded floor position.
