    I worked at Portillo's Restaurant Group part-time (more than a year)


    the best thing is the food, you get to constantly eat and they are very flexible with your schedule and the employees are fun to talk to.


    there are no benefits, if you have to work the drive thru then you will be out there in any weather condition which is terrible and like all restaraunts you also have angry and crazy customers who jus want to ruin your day.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Well there should be more concern for the employees who work outside because sooner or later there will be a lawsuit

    Positive Outlook

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Portillo's Restaurant Group in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    I initially had a phone interview. I told them the salary I was looking for and still told me to come in for an interview. I go in a few days later for an interview and the minute the recruiter came in, I could tell she did not like me. The manager came in as well. I did not like being interviewed by someone who would have been my coworker who was also asking me about the salary I wanted. The interview ended abruptly. The recruiter got up walked me to the conference door and said "you remember how to get out?" I was very upset about how unprofessional she was and immediately knew that was not the job for me.

    Interview Questions
