I have been working at Chili's part-time (more than an year)

Pros

Very busy, excellent GM with great AM's. Flexible scheduling due to high volume of employees. BOH does a nice job.

Cons

Not a great crowd who comes in late to eat, long hours with little breaks on doubles, picky managers about little things, and many employees have had personal items stolen from the BOH. (sunglasses, wallets, cash out of books, ect.)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Implement surveillance cameras for reported theft, hire quicker more experienced bartenders, close earlier on Friday/Saturday nights. Waste of labor hours when less than 200 dollars in sales is generated in the last hour and a half.

    I worked at Chili's part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The best part of the company is the atmosphere. I worked at a Utah location all the way through college - it was a great way to make extra money and get the social interaction that double-majoring didn't allow. Chili's makes a community of its employees. Right before I started, a host/bus staff member (a friend of a friend of mine and a brother of two other employees) passed away, and Chili's paid for his funeral and offered emotional support to all of the mourning employees. Great company.

    Cons

    Because it is casual dining, occasionally you have to work with people who don't take any pride in their work and that can be frustrating. Also a little cult-y, but not terribly so. As a trainer, I indoctrinated new employees in a way that sometimes felt cheesy, but it really was like a family.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep on keepin' on.

    Very training based, salary/compensation based on effort.
