    Fun place to work with great training!

    Pros

    I had no restaurant experience prior to working at Chuy's, and was a bit nervous about being in a different kind of role. They did a great job with training, and made sure I felt confident by my first solo shift. The environment is fast-paced, fun, and friendly. The management at my store were by far some of my favorite people I've ever worked for!

    Cons

    Closing shifts can be long, but that's expected in most restaurants.

    Pros

    Culture, history, laid-back atmosphere, delicious food!! Gosh even though I worked there I would love to eat there all the time! Fresh ingredients!

    Cons

    The doubles hardly ever got a decent break. They used to give the doubles actual breaks, like 15-30 minutes. Not like that anymore. There were plenty of times my fellow co-workers and I (that were working a double) couldn’t even have 5 minutes to scarf down a taco in the back before returning to the floor. I’ve been a server for 9 years and I know it gets hectic and stressful. It’s always a fast-paced and detail oriented job so I enjoyed that part but not being able to eat anything or take a minute to just sit down and catch your breath because you’re scheduled a 14-15 hour shift and they told us “that’s what we signed up for” by being scheduled and picking up doubles. Biggest and probably only con really.
