    I have been working at El Pollo Loco

    Pros

    Only good thing about this place is you get a pay check every two weeks. I can not think of any other pros.

    Cons

    Management is verbally abusive towards it's employees, treats them like crap, and even calls them stupid in so many words. Never appreciate anything good that you do for the company,and you only get negative feedback. And If you get customer compliments, management will not tell you. Management is the the most uneducated group of people I have ever seen. They write business memos like a third grader. EX: You managers has buy you a lot of nice gift for Christmas party. Your store will closed at 8:00pm so you can came to this exciting event. (This Is how the memo for the office party read last year.) I wish I was making this up. Never work for this company they will throw you under the bus at any chance they get. Trust me I've been thrown under the bus many of times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees better and listen to them, they are the ones on the front line everyday, and they know what is best for the business.
