Pros

Free food, great people, good atmosphere.

Cons

Its fast food. It may be upscale fast food, but its still fast food and you will smell like tortilla chip fryer grease when you go home.

    Pros

    Great Crew and Managers
    Great opportunity to learn on the job
    Skills will transfer well to similar jobs, giving me a leg up
    Structured training system

    Cons

    Strict hours
    Schedules are not ready until the weekend before the schedule starts. (You don't know if you are working on Monday until Saturday or Sunday.)
    The work is demanding and the same thing everyday. The only things that change are the quantities of prep and most of the customers are: rice without cilantro, chips in the bowl, cilantro on the side,...)

    Pros

    One free meal when you work and 50% off meals on your day off.
    My manager was nice (kitchen managers and some other employees weren't so nice)

    Cons

    After reading a few reviews on glassdoor i noticed people complained alot about this job but i just figured maybe it wasn't true so i went ahead and applied and got the job. Im usually a hard worker but i quit after 4 days! All the work they make you do is definitely not worth 8.50 (new york pay) ! The lunch rush is the worst, im moving extremely fast and still get yelled at for not moving fast enough. (to the point that i almost cried) Not to mention everyday my fingers were burning because all the hot stuff (from frying the chips and making the taco shells having to touch it while its covered in very hot oil [you have to wear like 5 gloves] then when working the line you have to replace the food to make it fresh like every 5 minutes and its always burning hot cause the water underneath) and when you're not doing all that you have to make sure to sweep the floors and clean the counter every 10 minutes . and theres more that i will not go into detail about. NEVER AGAIN!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    if you're going to treat your employees like slaves at least pay them more!
