Pros

Flexibility and quick money. Not bad for a part-time worker, full-time college student.

Cons

Customers are demanding since its a chain restaurant. There is a significantly high amount of turnover. Its a rather dirty industry as well.

Advice to Management

Offer more hourly since the economy has crushed tips.

    "Has gone from "work hard, play hard" to just "work hard". No one "Play's Restaurant" any more."

    I have been working at Brinker full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Although there has been a lot of turnover, there are still phenomenal people at Brinker. I very much enjoy working with them every day and moving the business forward.

    Cons

    More and more of the new people in the company embody the "what have you done for me lately" mentality. While driving for some monthly result, they drive over coworkers. Several months of this sort of behavior has taken its toll, creating more and more of an "us vs. them" attitude. Brinker is losing its family unity.

    Advice to Management

    The focus on listening to the managers and flattening communication with the field has been great. There is no reason that we had to stop doing the same at the Home Office. The Home Office is smaller than ever, yet the casual face-to-face with leadership is at an all-time low.
