Cons: as above
management was abusive to employees and would disrecsect workers in front of customers and other workers and should have a program for managemet or just fire the people they have I nor anyone I know will ever have anything to do with this place.
Cook (Former Employee), Albany, NY – October 27, 2014
Pros: flexible hrs, strong support from staff, tips, etc
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
Team Member/Cashier (Former Employee), Lawrence, KS – October 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, TX – September 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
