What I like about the company

When I started it was great, but something happened a year ago. We were making more money but it was never enough, then they fired the only female GM, and they started watching us via security cameras. Really paranoid stuff and suddenly we had to work 60, then 70 hours a week. They cancilled peoples vacations and cut bonuses, I quit because of how they treated the other women there.

What I dislike about the company

The sexism and cutting our bonuses

Company Culture

It wasnt always positive

Support from management

management was there when you needed them, but never took time to help unless there was a problem that had already occurred.

Teamwork

teamwork was never a high standard

Freedom to work independently

micro managing was huge

Internal Communication

communication was not big

Gender Equality

everyone was treated equally.

Attitude towards older colleagues

they were treated fairly for the work that they were able to perform

Career Development

there wasnt much growth within that industry

Overall compensation for your work

It all was based on tips, which you earned for yoruself.

Office / Work Environment

it was clean, and comftorable with upcoming technology

Environmental Friendliness

They had bins for glass but that was the extent of recycling

Work-Life Balance

hard to balance your life with the hours that are required to be worked

Company Image

I was proud at the time of being employeed there

Job Security

It was never stable. You could loose your job at any minute for something that may not have been your fualt.

Handicapped Accessibility

It was a handicap accessible friendly restaurant

Workplace Safety

they always made sure it was safe for the employees

Challenging Work

it was pretty easy, common sense is all that was needed to complete tasks

Inclusive / Diverse

there was always a diverse staff

Suggestions for improvement

  • I would keep an eye on the management and how they treat the employees as a whole and individually. There was some favoritism and that isnt fair to people who work there and do the same job as everyone else.

What I like about the company

I did have great connections with my guest. I was able to build relationships with many people and advance my career in a different path due to who I met

What I dislike about the company

I was not a fan of the management. They could have stood behind the employees a little more and created a better moral for the whole team as one together.

Company Culture

I made a couple friends there. But, a lot of the workers seemed uneducated and were just mean.

Support from management

I made a couple friends there. But, a lot of the workers seemed uneducated and were just mean.

Teamwork

They seemed to think bickering was funny. The managers wouldn't enforce any rules, it was just chaos.

Freedom to work independently

They wanted us to work independently.

Internal Communication

The manangement wasn't good. They were never organized, all running around and had no communication with other managers in the same building. They didn't communicate the new changes to menus well. It just wasn't good, and it has really bad reviews on Yelp to prove it.

Gender Equality

The women were strong, and always made sure the other women were treated right. They wouldn't allow anyone to really harass them. The men were very kind to me. The women got the same number of hours as the men did, it seemed mostly equal.

Attitude towards older colleagues

They hired a few people over 45, it was refreshing. It was nice to work with them, they're harder workers. They're less rude than younger people, and the customers liked them better. I would like to see companies hire more people over 45.

Career Development

A restaurant is a good first job. But other than that, there's nowhere to go from there.

Overall compensation for your work

It was fair for an entry level job. It's not meant to be more than that, it was only temporary.

Office / Work Environment

It was comfortable and chic in the restaurant.

Environmental Friendliness

There weren't really any recycling bins.

Work-Life Balance

They allowed me to work part-time, and would somewhat work around my school schedule, which was the one good thing about working there.

Company Image

I didn't really like Chili's to begin with. It's just too disorganized.

Job Security

There are so many developments with AI. All restaurant workers will be replaced soon, which is good.

Handicapped Accessibility

There were tables for handicapped people.

Workplace Safety

Training only lasted three days. People would do a better job if they knew what they were doing. I didn't have any instruction on safety.

Challenging Work

Food service is hard. Every job has its challenges. But everyone seems to complain about food service.

Inclusive / Diverse

They were kind enough, and would listen to me.

Suggestions for improvement

  • The managers could just improve communication with each other.

What I like about the company

I made a couple friends. They were ambitious like me, they wanted this to be a temporary job. One of the managers who was a woman was nice to me. She helped me out if I had a question. The job wasn't all that hard, but it was stressful. The money was alright, and it served its purpose.

What I dislike about the company

The managers were very disorganized. If they had headsets, or found ways to communicate with each other, it would be run better. A lot of the times the cooks undercooked the food, we constantly got complaints from the customers about that. They should vet their people better, they should hire people who aren't so disagreeable. Some of my coworkers were rude to the customers, and everyone they worked with. Customers complained about them all the time.
