Not a pleasant place to work
Dishwasher/Prep Cook (Former Employee) –  Lewisville, TXAugust 29, 2017
Managers abd general manager at that workplace don't have a good attitude about any employee. They scold you, and they personally held my paycheck from me for over a month and a half. They also don't give people the breaks that they need.
Pros
Food at break is free.
Cons
Negative attitudes, disbonest, dirty.

its a job
Customer service (Former Employee) –  Providence, RIJuly 20, 2017
its a good tasting restaurant but working there isnt the best. you work pretty hard and they expect you to bend over backwards for them while getting burned with oil and dancing around in a chicken suite from time to time while never hearing about a raise. but just like most food places it doesnt pay much but it pays(every other week i might add)

Pollo Campero was a good environment to work in and experience fast paced restaurants and good service.
Food Dispatcher/Server/Cashier/Dishwasher (Former Employee) –  Brooklyn, NYAugust 25, 2016
Management was sort of challenging to cope with but I've managed to follow up with changes. Typical day at work was very fast paced and time went by quick. They make sure you are comfortable with doing whatever in the place even if it isn't in your job description.
