Great Idea, Bad Followthrough

Assistant Manager (Current Employee)
Virginia Beach, VA

ProsI 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.

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

Advice to Senior ManagementI would tell Management within the franchise to respect and value employees more.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
