Crew Member (Former Employee) – Newport Beach, CA – November 16, 2017
This is the most enjoyable job I've had yet. I was able to learn things quickly because managment and Co-workers were so friendly and knew exactly what they were doing, but if you didn't they were eager to help. Pay was great and hours were decent considering I worked part time or near full time. I enjoyed the flexibility of shifts and hours. Though if i'm working full time i'd like it to be consistent.
Great pay, Benifits, Discounts, Friendly Co-workers, Positive Enviorment
Sometimes you find yourself trying to do to many things at once or to much of one thing.

When I was there the managers were understanding, and always willing to help. My co workers were like family, and coming to work was actually enjoyable. There would rushes that lasted hours, but it helped the shift fly by. Overall, great place!

A typical day at work started with all of the food prep for the day, and filling condiments. then cashiering. i learned excellent team work and problem solving. There was no hard part of the job and the most enjoyable was working with my co workers and meeting new customers. Management was very friendly and willing to teach with chances to advance

I've been working at 5 guys for about 5 months and there's been chill days where not a lot of customers come in, and there's been hectic days with endless amounts of customers. But I always have a good time working here because my coworkers are great people and when we work together, this job can be fun.
free lunches, not a lot of stress
closing and opening can be hard work, rushes can get intense
Shift Manager (Former Employee) – Fredericksburg, VA – November 12, 2017
A typical day at Five Guys consists of taking orders at the register, cleaning the lobby and restrooms, working on the line in the kitchen, and preparing produce and other items. The most enjoyable part about the job is knowing that you have the chance to make someone's day and create a lively atmosphere for everyone in the store.
Manager/Shift Leader (Former Employee) – Fort Lauderdale, FL 33316 – November 11, 2017
the normal day at five guys was a nice day overall. the work was fast paced and there was never really any downtime because they were always busy. I enjoyed the experience overall because by the time you get there you already leaving. the time flies.
Team Member/Cashier (Current Employee) – Rossford, OH – November 9, 2017
working at five guys is fun but there are times where things just seemed off to me. scheduled hours would taken off schedule and hours were cut for no reason. sometimes you weren't given the bonus that you worked for and sometimes tips weren't split fairly. management was great for the most part there were just times where you wouldn't receive any hours for a couple a weeks even after asking because the manager favored one employee. again it was overall a great place to work at there were just a few things that didn't seem quite right
no fair hours, scheduling problems from management
Cook/Cashier (Former Employee) – New York, NY – November 9, 2017
Was a fast paced store but they couldn't work with my school schedule at the time. It's definitely a place for first time workers to apply to. And there is definitely room for people to grow in company.
Cashier/Customer Service (Former Employee) – Baton Rouge, LA – November 8, 2017
I first liked the job at Five Guys because of the people, but I was working the register because that was what I was trained as, but as time went by, I got switched to lobby person or "janitor" and I absolutely hated it
Crew (Current Employee) – New York, NY – November 4, 2017
Pros - Good atmosphere to work (depends on the location & people) - Flexible working hours
Cons - Understaff due to labor cost - No Free Meal, No Employee Discount, or No Benefits for Crews - Sometimes expected to stay longer than usual shift - Secret Shop - Huge mess during rushes yet it's expected to be clean (More mess the longer it takes) - Sometimes music is too loud that you can't hear anything what customer say - Possibly no breaks are given * during holidays * when someone calls out and there is no replacement
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - Overall, my experience working in Five Guys isn't great or bad. I wouldn't recommend this job to anyone.
Team Member (Former Employee) – New Orleans, LA – November 3, 2017
This workplace allows the employee to build relationships with co-workers and customers while enjoying work. The environment gave the sense of being able to talk to managers about problems one may have had.
