Starts out great at the bottom of the totem, lose a lot the higher you go.

Pros

Great bonus structure, employees feel valued, fun work environment, excellent food, quality product. Highly competitive salary and workload for crew members vs other fast food chains.

Cons

Salaries not always comparative to others in the field for managers.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Invest more in developing from within instead of hiring in at high levels, best way to foster the great ideals of Five Guys is to instill them from "childhood".

    Pros

    When they gave you free food that was good. I Like free food. Foooood, yay. Also you could go have cigarettes.

    Cons

    The elaborate system of hierarchy for very annoying. Everyone was super invested in if the were an assistant shift leader or a level two hamburger maker. Also we had to watch these horrible training videos.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You really should relax about the uniforms. They are so ugly.

    Pros

    The best part was the free burger and fries after a shift. I enjoyed interacting with the customers, and I love the food. As an employee, I was really impressed with the cleanliness of the franchise.

    Cons

    There was no feedback from the management and it was tough to reschedule a shift because the management did not organize the schedules very well. If I needed to switch a shift, I would have to ask way ahead of time.
