Fryer (Former Employee) – Grand Blanc, MI – February 1, 2016
I got along well with my co-workers, so each day was usually pretty fun. I did enjoy working here, though toward the end of my employment there I was getting fewer days scheduled, which was one of my reasons for leaving.
Productive work also a fun and ethusiastic work enviorment
Line Cook/Shift Leader (Former Employee) – Buffalo, NY – January 21, 2016
I work at a few different five guys restaurants and overall I enjoyed Im very thankful for the opportunities and achievements and even knowledge I gain from working in the unique fast food restaurant. Five guys was my first job I held on to it for three years and enjoyed every bit of it for the most part. I also learned a lot from working there preparing me for a lot of other jobs in the work so I do thank the establishment for the knowledge I was fulfilled with.

Manager (Former Employee) – Monroeville, PA – January 20, 2016
This company has no integrity. They say you can make more money with their e for expert program but when you complete all your e's the money isnt given. As far as Im concerned that isnt a legimate excuse.
Cashier (Former Employee) – West Linn, OR – January 7, 2016
Similar to a fast-food environment, but with no drive thru. Meal prep. is fairly simple. When taking orders, you need to be able to loudly shout to the line cook what's being ordered so they can get it on the grill fast. Very high energy; employees are loud, fast moving.
Assistant Manager (Former Employee) – Gresham, OR – January 7, 2016
I really enjoyed working for this company. I left on good terms to continue my education. It was exciting! It was kind of like performing in front of a crowd. You are in an open kitchen in customer view. I helped open multiple locations and the sales were insane! $20,000+ in sales in one day!!! The owners are amazing people, super friendly. One piece of advice is to make sure to smile! Be loud.. it requires nonstop communication. Show up to work on time. I had spent hours sweeping peanuts and for some reason it made me crave them really badly all the time. Their food is excellent. They don't have a freezer. All of their patties and fries are made by hand. You will have to complete hours of training videos. They have extremely high standards and will not tolerate corners being cut. Once you get the groove of things its a piece of cake.I truly enjoyed this experience.
Assistant Manager (Former Employee) – Flushing, NY – January 6, 2016
I was directly responsible for overall store operations. These tasks ranged from inventory, deposits, labor, hiring, training, scheduling, etc. This job was very demanding and fast paced. I really learned a lot from this experience. I was well liked by my co-workers and made the job fun but kept things professional. The hardest part of the job was it being very busy as it is located inside of an airport.
Crew Member (Former Employee) – Columbus, OH – December 30, 2015
A very great company to work at if you looking for your first job. I had the best experience there great co workers and management. the hardest part of the job is when its very busy because you have to move at a fast paste.
Crew Member (Current Employee) – Columbia, MD – December 5, 2015
It's Fun, cool and enjoyable working in Five Guys but there is so many cons. Sometimes you have do deal with angry costomers that affects your working mood and Its really hard to work when things got really busy because everything have to be done manually. But the most important thing is I must always remember that this is my job and im doing to please peoples and costomers no matter what happened. Because there is an old saying costumers is always right.
FIVE GUYS BURGERS & FRIES (Former Employee) – Sebring, FL – November 22, 2015
Liked working for FIVE GUYS BURGERS & FRIES but did not like the food field. My typical day at work was fast past. I learned alot about cooking. The Managers were nice and my co workers were also very nice. There was no hard parts for this job. The most enjoyable part for this job would have to be making the people we cooked for happy!
Team Member (Former Employee) – Dothan, AL – November 15, 2015
From the moment you clock in for your shift, you're hitting the ground running in this place of burgercraft. the nonstop pace of customers, smells, and great food around was enough for to stay here for a few years. I loved working at Five Guys. I made alot of friends here and had alot of fun.
table (Current Employee) – Miami, FL – November 10, 2015
A typical day at work we have alot of customers in im speeding speeding to get the tickets out the way by myself to make there order right in with speed. What I've learned is how to work with speed. With my coworkers we always work together as a team. The hardest part is having like 7 tickets on the table in mangers speeding you to hurry up.
Crew Member (Former Employee) – West Bloomfield Township, MI – October 31, 2015
I really learned a lot being there and they where very understanding and open with my schedule and my training. The management gave me a lot of discipline and guidance that help me to mature in the company. My co-workers where very helpful and nice. The most enjoyable part was the very relax and attentive work and the great food.
