I worked at El Pollo Loco part-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Fast paced environment, Good pay ($9/hr cashier), nice coworkers, i had a really nice manager, and free food.

Cons

In the beginning there was a lot of work to do, as the new kid you have to do pretty much all the cleaning, on top of learning the job itself. But once you get the hang of it, it gets easier. It is a lot of work for little pay, but it is better than most fast food companies. And quite a few racist customers.

Advice to Management

Dont tell the new employee to do EVERYTHING.
