Cons

You sometimes have to work long shifts

  1. "Nice place to work, but lack of bussers puts far too much on the server's plates."

    I have been working at Chili's Grill and Bar part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Recognition when you do a great job.
    If serving can make quite a lot of money.
    Good team oriented atmosphere.

    Cons

    Training was hit or miss.
    Lack of dedicated bussers or food runners.
    Given a promotion, but was given very little hours as server, with unrealistically high expectations and poor training.
    Busy nights get very stressful, especially when understaffed.

    Advice to Management

    Take a closer look at the trainers. Some do a great job, others really don't care at all. When promoting individuals, give them the opportunity to actually work those shifts, so they can get the hang of the job.

    Hire back bussers, so hosts can focus on hosting, and servers can handle multiple tables efficiently. Otherwise, include hosts in the server's mandatory tipshare, as they pick up the slack for bussing when servers fall behind.


  2. "pretty good"

    I worked at Chili's Grill and Bar full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    corporate will back you up in a pinch, our store was esp great during the hurricane..met wonderful people. 50% discount at sister restaurants

    Cons

    its really hard to give great service, via 'team service' or otherwise when our bussers are taken away..we have 8-12 tables between 2 servers we have to bus EVERYTHING ourselves, run food all while getting double sat (God forbid someone needs an allergy menu, or takes forever to order, then we're really backed up) and the menu is all over the place
