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.

    Pros

    You get a paycheck every two weeks. The food is good and there are a lot of great employees who try to do their best to earn a living.

    Cons

    Upper management treat the empolyees like dirt. You are constantly reminded of what a loser you are. The constant pressure and lack of respect is truely unbearable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You are nothing without your people! Treat them well.
