Pros: discounted lunches, multiple tasks
Cons: healthcare, short schedules
Working at El Pollo loco was a fun and fast place to work at, I loved it because they always kept you busy. It was not acceptable to stand there ( that's what breaks are for ) which was alright with me because there was always something to do. The management was extremely friendly and funny, She was our shift leader. The manager was hardly there but reason for that was because she needed to go to different El Pollo Loco's to maintain and manage the other restaurants. The hardest part of the job I must say is closing, and drive threw. Closing had many task involved, we had to make sure that EVERYTHING was clean all the trash was thrown away, we also had to take apart the warming stove and sweep/ mop the whole restaurant and get equipment ready for the next day. Drive threw was tough also, in fast food restaurants that section is first priority and we were timed also in that case we needed to keep up tempo otherwise we'd get in trouble by the person that is in charge because there is a machine that records our time for each car that pull into the drive threw. The most enjoyable part about working there is having fun with the co workers and customers, having conversation and helping each other out.
