General Manger (Former Employee) – Pittsburgh, PA – June 18, 2018
Started as a cook promoted to GM in less than a year, that was good but you have to sacrifice family life for work. Overall the hourly employees were awesome and the food quality was good, but the sacrifices were very troubling
Training is undervalued and most things are taught in the fly. I worked for a franchisee so corporate stores may be different.

When i used to work at Qdoba, i usually worked on weekends because that's the only time i had to work and weekends at Qdoba are the busiest days. Usually a lot of families came on weekend from church to eat, and it was really hard time for the employers.
Line Worker (Former Employee) – Wilmington, DE – June 11, 2018
The pay was good I just didn’t like how I didn’t have a set schedule for the week. I would come in work the time the manager says to and clock out whenever the manager says I can go. You don’t get direct deposit either, that’s another situation. I would have to go every Friday AFTER 3pm to pick my check up hoping the bank was open to cash it in. Other than that I liked it.
The job was fairly simple. you come in on time, and go where you are assigned. on a typical day I came into work at 8 in the morning to start prep. I would finish before opening at 10 and work as the cashier.

A typical day would be to go in and be assigned a station. But, they ask you to do multiple things at one station and expect you to get it all when in reality you are going crazy. Opposed to the beginning of the line they have one thing to do and expect the line to not get backed up. In the beginning I had good hours but, now they seem to be getting very low. The coworkers are very nice though and some understand you. While others can be impatient.
Line Server (Former Employee) – Vermillion, SD – June 5, 2018
Serving food on the line, cleaning, restocking, and food prep. People were very great to work with; made great friends through this job. Food is great to eat on breaks and to take home. Often very fast paced job where you are working with others.
Line Server/Cashier (Former Employee) – Anchorage, AK – May 31, 2018
I was in school while working for qdoba and I didnt originally want to work 40 hour work weeks but we were always understaffed and overworked. Great people, I absolutely loved my coworkers but the job itself was stressful and physically demanding.
Cook/Line Cook (Former Employee) – Fort Collins, CO – May 30, 2018
This can be a very fast paced job depending on the location of your store. You can be assured however that no matter how slow the restaurant is, there is always work that can be done. Manager has complete freedom to schedule hours as he/she wants to and will normally play favorites. Team atmosphere is decent but can be deterred by one lazy employee
Not of lot of hours, no benefits, pretty fast paced atmosphere
