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

    Pros

    I was fortunate enough to work at multiple restaurants! Coworkers are genuinely very nice and managers (all but one I encountered) were quite good leaders!

    Cons

    I had one manager that I worked for that ended up being the reason I quit. But that was the one restaurant I worked at in Florida

    Advice to Management

    To the one manager that made me want to quit, he needs to stop being cheap. His restaurant is falling apart but he just wants the bonus and doesn't care about his employees! But he sure pretends. But I have to say every other manager I really liked. I felt cared for and appreciated and they helped me achieve my goals
