Outstanding Work Culture
MANAGER (Current Employee), Tinley ParkJuly 26, 2015
Pros: Free Lunches, Great Atomosphere
Every day at work is a day I'm going to laugh. My store has so much fun at work, while we are working. We come together as a team and work hard and make the experience for the customer entertaining when all we are doing is having fun. Even through rushes the team at Tinley Park comes out strong. My GM and even my DM / AAM have all helped me mold into manager with an optimistic out look on working and it rubs off on the crew. Practice what you preach, and know how to answer questions for as to why we do things that we do. To always be able to explain something to a crew memeber why do certain things. A happy staff means happy customers and Five Guys is really showing that through who they employ. Hardest part of the job is keeping everyone organized when the first rush comes in.

Fun and Productive
Cashier (Current Employee), Rochester, NYJuly 24, 2015
Pros: Free Lunch, All the Fries you can eat
I am usually on time. I normally arrive an hourly or on time. When I get to work I normally jump in and help with whatever needs to get done. Usually there's not much for me to do so I have to find something to do. the hardest part about my job is when I get my schedule, I am scheduled to work one day out the week and I have to take care of my family with this job. Also, my name is constantly being called. The most enjoyable part of the job is that it's a little laid back, we have fun with each other.

Pros: free meals.
Cons: low pay
Five guys has actually been a very enjoyable place to work. Although lately there have been a lot of changes to our crew and management. My hours have started to decline and in turn has affected my income. I have needs that require tending to and i need something that can provide the lifestyle that i want to live.

Enjoyable fast-paced work environment
Cashier (Former Employee), Las Cruces, NMJune 4, 2015
A typical day is a fast paced environment, taking peoples orders, getting them right as well as processing transactions and handling cash. You learn how to work as a team and be a fair team player. You get extremely close to your managers because they are just like your friends as well as getting close to your co-workers. The hardest part of the job is being able to work in a fast paced place in such a short period of time. The enjoyable part is being able to work with such great people and making people enjoy the quality they pay for.
