Cashier (Former Employee) – Barstow, CA – September 20, 2018
A lot of busses would come, I learned quite a few phrases in Spanish to help with more customers, the management was good, they were always very understanding, the hardest part of the job may have been the language barrier between me and our diverse customers. The most enjoyable part was getting to learn how to speak to the diverse customers and get to know them better.

El Pollo Loco is a good place to start. They accept most people that apply to it when positions are available. It gets you another place of work experience in your resume and more. You may start of with low hours, but with time you will get them raised and so will your opportunities in the job as well. I just don't recommend staying there for a long time since there are better opportunities and jobs in the world.

el pollo loco is a good job if youre only gonna be there for a couple months no more no less. this job takes a toll on your character as me and many coworkers talk about. this job made us all more moody and aggravated.
Cashier/Customer Service (Current Employee) – Palmdale, CA – September 11, 2018
Overall working here has made me a better person. I feel it has given me a boss-like mentality. I know what it takes to ensure orders are executed correctly and in a timely manner. Also i have learned how to deal with unhappy customers and resolve any issues regarding our services provided. Definitely a great place to learn to adapt to a fast paced workplace.
Assistant Manager (Former Employee) – Norwalk, CA – September 6, 2018
This is a great job for high schoolers to start their work experience. There obviously older people with experience who do this for a living but if you want to gain work experience this is the place. The only thing is management is not that great once you become a full-time cashier.
Drive Thru Cashier (Former Employee) – Tracy, CA – September 5, 2018
A typical day of work consisted of packing salsas serving 100+ customers through the drive thru, and cleaning the restaurant after closing. Management was okay I really liked the current GM Diana. The workplace is fast paced but the coworkers made it bearable. The hardest part of the job was meeting the average drive thru time of 4 minutes. The most enjoyable part was closing.
