hard working job but great pay
Prep Cook (Former Employee), San Marcos, TXFebruary 13, 2015
Pros: great friends
Cons: low staffed
it was a hardworking job to do but it made me happy in the end. the only problem was that chili's was short staffed so if having had more employees the shifts would've been less stressful with less amount of quantity of food to have. the amount of food per receipe to prepare was sometimes a challenge but worth the work in the end to know that you can overcome a big demand required of you and to perform it day after day. I feel working at chili's helped teach me essiental receipes that I could use at other food establishments as well. ive learned a lot and thankful that .

Casual upbeat atmosphere
Manager (Current Employee), Lebanon, TNFebruary 13, 2015
Chilis is growing and working toward great things. As a manager you have very little quality of life. Salary is good, but if you break down hours to your pay hourly team members fair out much better. Team members sometimes make their job harder than it needs to be. Managers cook, wash dishes, bartend, wait tables and more, while focusing on guest. Time management for managers can be a challenge due to such focus on labor. When getting team members off the clock leaves management having to pick up slack and can be difficult. Most enjoyable part of the job is guest interaction.

Fun work environment with great people
Expeditor, To-go Cashier, Fry Cook, Dish, Busser (Former Employee), El Paso, TXFebruary 13, 2015
Pros: free food, some great coworkers, good managers, flexible scheduling
Cons: some days can be really stressful, some awful/annoying coworkers, closing duties
A typical day at this establishment starts with going there a little early to have time to eat the employee meal before the shift starts. Once the shift starts, it all depends on the flow of customers that come in. Some days, it can be slow so work is easy; other days, it can be packed so work can be a bit stressful. But a busy day does equal more money. Also, depending on who your coworkers and manager for that day are, it can mean the difference between a busy day flowing smoothly or being a wreck.

Great teamwork environment, management team could of been better though.
Server (Former Employee), Oceanside, CAFebruary 11, 2015
Pros: great discounts, 50% off for you and three other friends.
Cons: no bussers, and often no dishwasher on.
Great serving system that encouraged teamwork amongst servers by having servers work as partners in a larger zone. I learned how to give help but also be able to take help. One of the things that could have been better was the fact that there were no bussers and that responsibility fell entirely on the servers, and I felt sometimes that took away from my ability to spend time with my guests.

Working at Chili's had prepared me to be the best communicater with guests.

Coworkers are generous and hardworking. Managers are productive.

Chilis at a glance
Bar/Safety/ Service Manager (Current Employee), Dedham, MAFebruary 6, 2015
Cons: salary, health care, personal life
Chilis is growing and working towards great things. As a manager you have zero personal life and work very hard for minimal pay. The day to day is challenging depending on the team members. Managers cook, bartend, wait tables and more, very guest driven and wish to give the best customer service you can. Hardest part of the job is time management and most enjoyable part of the job is guest interaction.

Fast paced and good money, with cons
Server (Former Employee), Odessa, TXFebruary 2, 2015
Its a corporate restaurant, what do you expect. Its what made me want to go to college and further my education. Not a bad job, but between changing locations and the severe difference in management styles, I can only say that there is little to no structure to this business in regards to the every day worker. Also, ever restaurant has the same idea. Good location = good tips.

Great place to work
Server/Bartender (Former Employee), Farmington, NMFebruary 1, 2015
It was always a fun environment to work in. We all got the job done and helped out. I really enjoyed working there. Management were all very balanced in making sure things got done and making sure our outside lives counted as well. We were given the time off we needed and there wasn't a fight for hours back then.
