Cashier/Cook in Sterling, VA
on November 19, 2019
working there was fun and I got to eat a free meal I just didn’t like some of the managers I don’t know if they are still there are not but one of the managers was very rude.

Good environment. Nice coworkers. Most management is nice and flexible/accommodating. Not a whole lot of opportunities to move up. Especially if you're a girl, be prepared to only take orders, clean, and *maybe* get to prepare buns if you're lucky. You will also straight up be trained differently than male coworkers, too. But if you want opportunities and to actually cook your time is better spent elsewhere.

At first I thought this job was going to be great until not even a month in, I was already being yelled at and berated for not learning fast enough. Coworkers and managers constantly talk bad about eachother and were prone to getting angry and impatient, assistant manager was a horrible and difficult person to work with and it was hard connecting with anyone. Coworkers also talked bad about the customers alot, even when the customer never did anything wrong. This job made me realize how important work environment is for me and so I decided to eventually quit once I had enough. I'd rather get less pay in a job I'm happy to go to than stay in a place like this.

A typical day at work at five guys is walking in, finding out what you're running, and going on from there. Depending on how staffed the day is, you may be running multiple stations. I learned a lot about multitasking and just handling situations I didn't really either like or agree with. Management is good, but it's almost always changing.

Good pay but treated like your in high school. Constant call offs. People not trained properly. Have to constantly worry about shops and steritech. Place to only work temporarily
