difficult to get shifts
Server (Current Employee) –  Greenwood, INJuly 11, 2019
felt as though management judged me for my age. I am 45 and i had to fight to get the job. I am proving myself now but it was difficult. I am between jobs so had to get something immediately.

Overall great experience and work environment
Server (Former Employee) –  Orlando, FLJuly 9, 2019
Management was a bit more harsh and less understanding than any other job but great work space and money. They did not discriminate and every one was welcome. The customers and business was great and always fast paced.

Very Bad
Server (Current Employee) –  Little Rock, ARJuly 9, 2019
Everything there was just bad! The service, management, and food. The team members wouldn’t work together at all! As they hired people they would quit their first day or the same day!

Not the best job, tips are ok very stressful
Server (Former Employee) –  Lawton, OKJuly 8, 2019
Poor management, feel like they pick favorites. Also the company just expects you to do so much for little pay.. blames everything on you when it has to do with their lack of help. Very unorganized. If you can find better, do so. Pros..Flexible for work/home life.

Chili's is a great place to work!
Server (Current Employee) –  San Antonio, TXJuly 8, 2019
My Time at Chili's has helped me expand my social bubble and understand the fast pace world of the food industry. Always keeping me busy, and productive. However, most of hiring happens from outside rarely ever opportunities to get promoted.

Good money, poor management
Server (Former Employee) –  Lubbock, TXJuly 7, 2019
This was a good place to make money. The staff was decent for the most part. Lots of long ticket times that hurt your tips. Good luck getting a manager to talk to tables when there are issues. Majority of mine spent their time in the office.

Server (Former Employee) –  Dundalk, MDJuly 6, 2019
Great general manager. Okay for other managers. Two people in one big section. Pretty good teamwork. They are very generous there with time off and will help you as much as you can so don’t take advantage. Just be a good employee and they will treat you nice.

Fast paced customer service.
Waitress (Current Employee) –  Camden, SCJuly 6, 2019
Typical day depends on the customer, but it's more fast paced than other places I've worked. Hardest part of the job is learning the point of sale system and menu but coworkers are very helpful.
Pros
flexible schedule
Cons
no breaks

You make you
Server/Waiter (Former Employee) –  Layton, UTJuly 6, 2019
It you're a good server you'll do good there. Just like any serving job. When I worked there it was pretty chill. It got stressful at times but, pretty common for a serving job. Decent incentives.

Extremely stressful
Server (Former Employee) –  Gastonia, NCJuly 1, 2019
Would never recommend anyone to work here. The guests are too demanding for the type of restaurant this is. It's sit down fast food, not 5-star dining.

Very fast paced workplace, but the money is great
Waitress (Former Employee) –  Nacogdoches, TXJune 26, 2019
A typical day at work includes but is not limited to: working within a section of the restaurant, maintaining needs of guests in your section within a timely manner, rolling 75 silverware with each shift, end-of-shift chores, and carrying multiple items at once. Working at Chili's it is very easy to get overwhelmed especially with a big party or needy guests, but stay focused and you'll leave your shift with a helpful wad of cash from tips.
Pros
free lunches, great tips
Cons
always busy, stressful

It's a Chain Restaurant....
Server (Current Employee) –  Dyer, INJune 24, 2019
We have poor quality customers because Chilis has too many coupons and discounted food. When you bundle meals for $25, you get entitled people from bad neighborhoods.

The management is lacking a quality of life and appear to be on suicide watch.

Everyone is in it for them selves and there is no teamwork.

Overall though it's an easy job.
Pros
Instant Money, Tips, Easy Check Out
Cons
No Healthcare

Fun workplace
Server (Current Employee) –  Fort Myers, FLJune 22, 2019
Very fun workplace, however, corporate is pretty disorganized and it shows in both FOH and BOH. Some of the stuff is just not in the right place or isn’t set up in the most effective way. They also rarely rely on an expo, or QA. There’s not many people who will help you run food or bus tables.
Pros
Short shifts (if you’re into that)
Cons
Short/ no breaks, only half off certain meals

Cool place to work
Server (Former Employee) –  Lafayette, INJune 22, 2019
Great atmosphere. Some things could have been different with certain managers. Its easy to pick up hours. Everyone fights to become bartender, but that’s every restaurant! Easy for servers to become managers/shift leads.

It’s for the money
Server (Current Employee) –  Kingman, AZJune 21, 2019
Most of the days at chili’s in kingman are chaotic and stressful and management doesn’t always provide the support you need. Shifts are based off of customer reviews so if you have a bad shift it can affect your scores tremendously and it can take two weeks of great shifts to balance it out. It’s a terrible system
