Fun and loving environment

Chiquito's is a fun place to work. The staff there are great to work with always making me laugh when I am not having a great day. lifting everyone up for a productive shift. Benefits are good with free food and drinks when working and a 30% discount on a selected number of restaurants. Management is good, always trying to do there best for the restaurant and there staff. I have learned valuable customer service and have become more confidant in speaking to people. However the pay isn`t great depending on how old you are and you find yourself doing a lot more work than your pay is worth but for a part time job for people still in education or for people who want a little bit of extra money on top of there everyday job this is a great job to have.

Manage wasn't great

I loved working there. The team used to be great fun. But it's very hard work. Management is a pain. You get minimum pay and told you can make tips but other than the waiters you'll rarely see a tip.

Worst job evet

I was excited to start a working here but after a first few week I noticed it was probably the worst job I’ve ever had in my life. Everything get out in the microwave. Chefs are lazy. Microwaving raw chicken topped it off. I would avoid this place at all costs

Good place to work

Management and co workers all lovely, minimum wage but tips make all the difference. Varied from very slow shifts to very busy but was always a good vibe.
