    I worked at El Pollo Loco full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    pay every two weeks for sure

    Cons

    some managers are very rude with the employeess and instead of helping their employes they scream to them and put them so down, most employes work hard for a living, manager think employes will work better if they treat them like they are no good, all the time pointing out their mistakes and screaming
    there are no raises in the salary ( only for managers) or benefit for the employees

    Advice to Management

    be nice to your employees cause you will not get nothing good out of them if you just remind them of their mistakes all the time and scream to them instead of helping them and be at least a little nicer.

    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.
