Does hearing "party of 200" get you weak in the knees? Then we should talk! Check out this job, and learn a little about us while you're at it.Our General Managers and management teams, Executive Chefs, and Banquet Sales Managers are the best in the biz. They coach and lead their teams, delight our Guests, and drive the business forward. Mind you…this ain't easy work, especially in a 15,000 square foot restaurant like ours. It's a bit like those big family reunions where you need to wear your name on a shirt because your 22 second cousins want to get to know you—there's just a lot going on. Multi-taskers with an ear for priceless feedback and a knack for inspiring their teams to deliver an amazing Guest experience—that's our idea of management. Biscotti Is Just A Hard Cookie, Until You Dip It In Espresso There's nothing better than enjoying life to the fullest, and every now and again, we need a little indulgence for working so hard in this fast-paced world. We know we ask a lot of our people. Long days, lots of energetic service, staying upbeat, putting everyone else ahead of ourselves, hoisting heavy plates of Mom's Lasagna! So what's in it for you? We're glad you asked – * Highly competitive salary positioned at the top 25 percent of the industry * Medical, Dental, Vision and Life Insurance within 31 days of hire, including domestic partner benefits * Obtainable quarterly bonuses with an annual potential up to 175 percent of plan * Flexible Spending Plans and Tuition assistance * Market Leading 401(k) Savings Plans with company match * Managing Partner Program for top performing GMs * Long Term Incentive Program: With its potential for rich annual payouts and a lucrative kicker at the end of three years, the LTIP is a bonus program on steroids! * The Brinker 5 Star Challenge rewarding the top 5% of Managers, General Managers and Executive Chefs * Annual Restricted Stock Grants, based on eligibility * Health Club/Fitness reimbursement * Dining discounts at Brinker owned brands We're The Original Originator Once upon a long time ago, going out to eat meant either a fancy, pricey, fussy restaurant, or a fast food drive-thru meal handed to you in a greasy paper sack. Our namesake, Norman Brinker, changed all that by pioneering the idea of "casual dining". And he knew an original when he found it. Guests in Chicago knew Maggiano's Little Italy was special when we opened our doors in 1991 on the corner of Clark and Grand. Today, thousands of restaurants later, Brinker International is the name behind good food, good times and great places to work. And Maggiano's is our own little slice of Italian American tradition come to life! Tony Soprano would be so proud. Maggiano's Is Authentic. Just Like The People Who Work Here. From the photos on the wall to the pasta in the kitchen to the people that surround us: everything at Maggiano's is authentic. Those Italian families that left their homeland for a life in the United States brought great tradition, great recipes and great fun with them. So, we live it up and make a meal at our place easy on everyone. We all work hard here and we all play our part—just like those fancy orchestras that make Darth Vader sound cool. We just skip the stuffed shirts. Working With Us Comes With An Extra Helping Of Helping Out Half the fun of making it in life is being able to share it. So part of our way of life is helping make the dreams of others come true, through the special events we host and special memories we help create. We've seen our fair share of weddings, bar mitzvahs, birthdays and baby showers. There's nothing better than helping create lasting memories in our restaurants and in our community. It's one of the reasons we support the Make-A-Wish Foundation, making wishes come true for kids with life threatening medical conditions. On the local level, we support the North Texas Food Bank, and because we also have a heart for our own, making small contributions to the Brinker Family Fund adds up in a big way and helps out our own in times of need. What do you think? Sound like your cup of espresso? Around here we say our purpose is to bring people together to celebrate the love of family and friends. If it sounds like we have our own way of looking at the world, you're right! We call it The Maggiano's Way, and it means odds are you get us and we want to meet you… now! Go ahead, hit the button. Apply Now! To view full job description CLICK HERE! Brinker International is proud to be an Equal Opportunity Employer, committed to workplace diversity, workplace working and workplace fun. The way we see it, life is short, so you might as well work happy. Brinker International Mclean VA
