Great place to work
Great place to work if you are looking for a good work/life balance. You can adjust your scheduled when needed, request off way in advance, and managers are easy to get along with.

Excellent job atmosphere
Excellent job atmosphere and facility. Managers and work load are great and the employees are not micro managed but left to do their work. The activities and perks of the job are great.

I worked downtown and they work you like a dog.
I am not sure about other locations but I do know that they have table side computers that are more like self service then the server them selves. Maybe other locations are not as gruelling but you would have to check it out for your self. At least they have outings for trainers or they use to.
Pros50% off food. Training outing for trainers.
ConsShort to no breaks, hard to advance, count your hours

Fun place to work, fast paced, and relaxed environment
Overall, Chili's was always a great place to work. I always enjoyed my job there, and I would recommend Chili's for others to work at. I learned a lot from Chili's and consider this my first real job experience. I met a lot of great people that I consider lifelong friends, and had a great experience in my Chili's career.
I had great managers over my years, only a few bad managers, but mainly great managers that I still talk to and get advice from. Money was good, and livable for a single person, but for someone who wanted a family and a house, I needed more personally. With good management, you can make it livable being married and even with children, but I believe my income became limited for what I wanted.
Going to work was always great, the customers were always amazing, my coworkers always became my friends, and I just felt like management knew how to staff so that there wasn't people butting heads, generally everyone got along, and this rubbed off on the customers. When customers see that people love what they are doing, genuinely love their work and the people they work with, the customers feed off that and help build that culture. I think Chili's did a great job of this.
Unfortunately there was a recession, and I felt like it hit our area, and at a time when I needed more money to help support a relationship and home, there were less people coming in the doors. Unfortunately I needed a change, but I do value what I learned from Chili's take with me things learned...more

Advancement and growth opportunities to Excel
Loved it. Would definitely work here if given opportunity to again. I loved the team player environment, and I learned my baseline here in how a restaurant is supposed to be operated.

No longer in Oregon
Chilis closed down with little notice I am very happy at Applebees now. Great stepping stone to where I am now. Trained fellow crew members and learned about leading by example.

Its an overall great experience to work here.
It is a fun place to work at yet challenging although it can sometimes be stressful due to difficult customers. The manager are willing to help in anyway they can and want to see you succeed.

nice place to work
They take care of their employees I believe in their core values. Most GM try to uphold their values but not all. They will work with team members and understand life happens
Regional Manager | Dallas, TX | Jul 18, 2018
Fun place to work. Many opportunities for advancement.
The food training they give management was intense but well worth it. The hours were long but again well worth it.
Typical work week 75-90 hours depending on inventory schedule and management level of each location.
ProsGood food, ability to move up the ladder
