What’s at the Heart of a ChiliHead?
There for each other since 1975.
ChiliHeads genuinely support each other and are passionate about creating meaningful connections and memories. We focus on putting others ahead of ourselves because when we lift each other up in our restaurants and our communities, we elevate our own lives, too.
A close-knit family of thousands.
We’re made up of more than 50,000 amazing Team Members and no two are alike. At Chili’s, everyone is valued, respected and listened to. It’s like a great big holiday meal … with everyone at the kids’ table. Our unique differences make us stronger as a team and help us thrive and excel in this fast-paced and sometimes
crazy restaurant business.
Proving that work can actually be fun.
As ChiliHeads, we take the job seriously – but not ourselves. We have a great time because we want our Guests to do the same. And if you’re not having fun in your career, why bother?
Our Cultural Beliefs
We’re in the business of making people feel special. In everything we do, we have to ask ourselves if we’re putting the Guest first and making sure they’ll come back for more. Our Cultural Beliefs bring that passion to life and shape who we are as a company and as the people who live and breathe inside of it. We’re more than mere transactions – we’re people connecting with people! If our beliefs are strong, our actions will match. And that’s how we create memorable experiences and real results.
Every Guest Counts
I own the Guest experience to ensure they return.
I deliver quality food and beverages on time, the best they can be.
I execute on the standards expected of me.
I make it fun for the Guest and the team. #ChilisLove
Bolder Together: Diversity, Equity & Inclusion
As food on our menu comes in all shapes, sizes and flavors, no two Team Members are the same, and that’s the way we like it. It’s quite simple: We believe a diverse, equitable and inclusive workplace is good for Team Members, Guests, and the communities we serve. Our Team Members and Guests are diverse in gender, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, disability, religion, age, cultural background and life experience. We celebrate these differences through a culture of inclusion where individual strengths and stories are respected and valued. We’re proud to be a community-oriented meeting place and want everyone to feel welcome at Chili’s.

This ChiliHead discovered just what the Power Of Love Can do.
Often, it can take years to “climb the ladder” and achieve real career success. But, Jonathon found out that a real love for what you do can lead to an express path to professional growth.
In May of 2017, Jonathon started as a Front of House Team Member in Bellingham, Massachusetts. For Jonathon, working at Chili’s was love at first sight. Jonathon says, “I immediately fell in love with the Chili’s culture and brand. As a Team Member, I found myself wanting more and excited to take on a leadership role.”
It wasn’t long before Jonathon got just what he wanted. He was quickly offered the opportunity to become a Certified Shift Leader. By March, 2019, Jonathon had moved to the Chili’s restaurant in Warwick, Rhode Island where he continued his development. He was then promoted to Kitchen Manager. Jonathon recalls, “As a Kitchen Manager, I worked hard, took on other roles and learned as much as possible.”
In October 2019 – after just seven months as a Kitchen Manager – Jonathon was promoted to General Manager. That’s pretty impressive! Or as Jonathon says, “Going from Team Member to General Manager in only 17 months, I even amazed myself! It’s the kind of thing you only see at Chili’s.”
