I do not plan to leave. However, if I ever did leave, it would be because I found a better or a full time job. Also, I could end up leaving from getting treated terrible by other workers. It does happen a lot when you are a host. Some servers are demanding and entitled when it comes to what TYPE of tables they and how many tables they get sat. You never stop hearing the servers argue with you.

3/$10. It's a great deal for guests, but has definitely killed my pocket book, and it's sticking around for a while.

I got another job that would be better for my career advancement, and received scheduling there already, but Chili's only schedules one week at a time. Thursday- the next Wednesday, and you can't request days off unless it's like 3 weeks in advanced. And since my new job was my top priority, it was too difficult to try to work around that schedule with Chili's.

The inconsistent rate of pay from day-to-day can be quite stressful. On top of the stress, it doesn't make my wife happy about the situation. It gives her anxiety as well.
