No opinion of CEO

I worked at Acapulco/EL Torito Restaurants full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Mom and pop mentality of "fix it yourself" gives you more knowledge about the business and how to save money on budget.

Cons

Senior Management- regional managers that speak little english. They know most of their managers have worked their way up the company from bussers and dishwashers so they treat them like they have no other management opportunities available and work them to death.

    I have been working at Acapulco/EL Torito Restaurants part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    New emphasis on the quality of the guest experieice; better service without singular focus on cost cutting; lots of menu changes and better food. Stable and loyal employees.

    Cons

    New ownership and revolving door at the top of the company.

    Advice to Management

    Don't take a step back by returning to cost cutting. Stay the course on improviements in the guest experience.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Good product, atmosphere, and concept. Guests always in a great mood. Mariachi bands, DJ
    's, and dancing. What about that is not to love.

    Cons

    Not much. Loved everything about it, but some more training work shops to keep the team strong.

    Advice to Management

    Senior management needs to step it up. The reason it is going down in flames.
