    I worked at El Pollo Loco

    Pros

    good coworkers, nice area to work in, food discount

    Cons

    benefits, medical is a joke, upper management could care less at retaining their employees, they lay off people and then bring in temps to do the same job under a slightly altered job category. The individual employee voice is non existant, typical republican CEO greedy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Employees are your most important asset, happy employees equal increased productivity, training is important and your company provides barely adequate training to your field employees, your franchisee employee illegal aliens paying them sub minimum wages and you look the other way while americans are out of work.

    I have been working at El Pollo Loco

    Pros

    I like working for El Pollo Loco because they are very flexible in the hours they give management. My restaurant is a franchise, therefore, we do not have the same benefits as a corporate El Pollo Loco has. Corporate El Pollo Loco's have some of the best benefit packages available. I believe that upper management in corporate El Pollo Loco is very competent, but it seems that within our franchise, everytime we take one step forward, we take two more steps back.

    Cons

    No benefits, no vacation, low pay, no incentives from the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would tell Management within the franchise to respect and value employees more.
