To Work At Maggiano’s You Have To
Love People – And Liking Sinatra Doesn’t Hurt!
Do you think fast and act fast? Do you have high standards? Does hearing “party of 200” get you weak in the knees? If you’ve got a thing for white linens, we should talk!
We’re The Original Originator
Once upon a long time ago, going out to eat meant either a fancy, pricey, fussy restaurant, or a fast food drive-thru meal handed to you in a greasy paper sack. Our namesake, Norman Brinker, changed all that by pioneering the idea of “casual dining”. And he knew an original when he found it. Guests in Chicago knew Maggiano’s Little Italy was special when we opened our doors on the corner of Clark and Grand. Today, thousands of restaurants later, Brinker International is the name behind good food, good times and great places to work. And Maggiano’s is our own little slice of Italian American tradition come to life! Tony Soprano would be so proud.
Working With Us Comes With An Extra Helping Of Helping Out
Half the fun of making it in life is being able to share it. So part of our way of life is helping make the dreams of others come true, through the special events we host and special memories we help create. We’ve hosted our fair share of weddings, bar mitzvahs, birthdays and baby showers. There’s nothing better than helping create lasting memories in our restaurants and in our community. It’s one of the reasons we support the Make-A-Wish Foundation, making wishes come true for kids with life threatening medical conditions. On the local level, we support the North Texas Food Bank, and because we also have a heart for our own, making small contributions to the Brinker Family Fund adds up in a big way and helps out our own in times of need.
Biscotti Is Just A Hard Cookie, Until You Dip It In Espresso
There’s nothing better than enjoying life to the fullest, and every now again, we need a little indulgence for working so hard in this fast-paced world. We know we ask a lot of our people. Long days, lots of energetic service, staying upbeat, putting everyone else ahead of ourselves, hoisting heavy plates of Mom’s Lasagna! So what’s in it for you? We’re glad you asked –

Our General Managers and Management teams and are the best in the biz. They coach and lead their teams, delight our Guests, and drive the business forward. Mind you…this ain’t easy work, especially in a 15,000+ square foot restaurant like ours. Remember the clown in the circus juggling a chain saw and two knives on a chair on a tight rope? Well, not that we think you’re a clown (and chain saws are scary) but you get the idea. Multi-taskers with an ear for priceless feedback and a knack for inspiring their teams to deliver an amazing Guest experience—that’s our idea of management.
Our Front of the House team welcomes our Guests into a slice of Italian Americana just like Grandma Nonna would have done. So, whether you're a Maitre’ D, Server, Carry Out and Delivery Specialist, Host/Hostess or a Bartender serving up drinks like the days of the Rat Pack, this team of fast-paced professionals welcome our Guests into our restaurants to break bread together and celebrate the richness of life. The number one goal of this team is to make our Guests feel special, and they are remarkable at what they do. Marinara sauce on your sleeve is just an added perk.
Our Kitchen team is the culinary equivalent of a great bottle of Cabernet—it just gets better with time. These Executive Chefs, Pastry Chefs, Line Cooks, Prep Cooks, Dishwashers, Food Runners and Bussers run our scratch kitchens with the fast pace and professionalism of any celebrity chef restaurant. But rather than those fly-by-night, flash in the pan restaurant hipsters that come and go every season, this team consistently delivers works of art to the tables of every Guest. They are true foodies to the core, energized by the creative inspiration of the dishes developed by our masterful culinary team in Dallas. It is a fast-paced environment that requires dedication and commitment to excellence, whether prepared for the special couple on Valentine’s Day, or for the 250 friends and family attending the wedding of the year. This team is “all in”.
Our Banquet team should be on your to-do list when you’re planning your next big shindig. They’ll even explain what the heck a shindig is. The Banquet Sales Managers, Banquet Captains, Banquet Servers and Housemen run circles around the Real Housewives of New Jersey, with far less drama and far better results. We have hosted thousands of weddings, bar mitzvahs, anniversaries, birthday parties and baby showers in our day. (Thankfully no babies have arrived too early—we have our limits!) Such memories will last a lifetime, and it brings a sense of pride and honor to know that our Guests have chosen us to celebrate with them. It’s the details that count for the events we host, so we scour the nation looking for someone that will get personally invested in making a difference.
What do you think? Sound like your cup of espresso? Around here we say our purpose is to bring people together to celebrate the love of family and friends. If it sounds like we have our own way of looking at the world, you're right! We call it The Maggiano's Way, and it means odds are you get us and we want to meet you… now! Go ahead, hit the button. We Dare You!
