    I have been working at Five Guys Burgers & Fries full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Free meal, decent pay, co-workers can be alright, customers seemed satisfied, secret shops

    Cons

    Lack of leadership, boredom, lack of on the job training, "sink or swim" mentality, having hours cut, mandatory half hour breaks, varying hours, tedious cleaning at night as a closer, co-workers not actually working, sweeping/other cleaning tasks while we are busy

    Advice to Management

    Take pride in training your supervisors. I've had this job for almost three months but will be leaving for my old job again soon. I've seen the general manager only in passing and worked with him on only one shift. Which means that I have been trained in by his supervisors (grey shirts.) All of them were younger than me and a couple were made supervisors based on desperation, NOT on skill set. Also, management could try to be less demanding and more congratulatory.

    I worked at Five Guys Burgers & Fries full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Well known, a leader in the field...good food

    Cons

    Run by a family and others with limited vision. Decision to not extend the product mix will lead to the company's demise, in my opinion.

    Advice to Management

    Broaden your perspective.
