Assistant Manger (Salary) (Former Employee), Washington D.CDecember 14, 2014
A typical day at work would be me coming into a high energy work place with some good mangers on my team. The importance of teamwork taught me how to actually work as a group to rebuild a store, i learned how to be a leader and how to make leaders as well. My co-workers were fun and very out going and the energy matched very well. The hardest part for – more... me was making sure i met my deadlines on things. But i really enjoyed working with people but overall the Customers were my favorite part of the job. – less

Cook (Former Employee), Albany, NYOctober 27, 2014
Pros: flexible hrs, strong support from staff, tips, etc
Cons: closing
A typical day would consist of a lot of cleaning to make sure our kitchen and our dining establishment was kept above standard upkeep. cooking on the grill, using the fryer, and cashier work.

I learned that being a 5 guys employee is an amazing thing and something to be proud of. The management helps bring out the best in you and are also very hands – more... on so you do not feel as though they are taking advantage of their position.

Management there is spectacular and my co- workers became my friends. Employment there has a family like aura around it.

the hardest part of the job is cleaning at the end of the day
and the most enjoyable part is making your own burger – less

Great Management, Fun, Challenging
Team Member/Cashier (Former Employee), Lawrence, KSOctober 24, 2014
In the typical day at Five Guys, you show up at 8 and prep food forabout two hours. Then the whole team makes a meal, sits down, and takes a break before opening, which can be a very good bonding experience. Opening at 11, the day starts out right away with a thin but stead stream of customers till noon when the lunch rush hits. That lasts for an hour – more... or two, meanwhile nonstop cooking and running from the kitchen out to the lobby and back again. If you work nights you show up at 4, clean and do anything to pass time till the dinner rush, then at 7 begin closing while still serving customers. If you're lucky you'll be out by 11, but if you have customers that stay late, which often they do, it'll be midnight before you clock out.

All in all it was a great place to work, the low pay is sometimes made up by the large secret shopper rewards, but those can be few and far between. Incredible GM, great management otherwise. – less

Cashier (Former Employee), Conroe, TXSeptember 20, 2014
Pros: working in a happy environment.
Cons: taking out the trash to the dumpsters.
A typical day at work would be setting up the store to open, counting down all the cash in my register and cleaning and organizing the store properly. As customers come in, I made sure to smile and greet them as the walked up to my register. I took their order in the friendliest fashion. My goal was to always make sure they walked away with a smile – more... as big as mine. I also cleaned up after customers once they were done eating and leaving. I learned how to handle cash accurately and how to cook on a grill. The hardest part of the job was taking out the trash to the dumpsters outside, but I didn't mind it. The most enjoyable part of the job was my co-workers. I felt like we were a Five Guys family, they made my job very fun. – less
