What are bar, restaurant and kitchen supervisors saying about pay at Five Guys?

  • Best thing

    Free food and making friends with colleagues

    Worst thing

    Managers try to change rules every 2-3 months with no follow-through, (telling us we cannot swap shifts anymore or have to pay for our own staff meals) talking about crew behind back (shady and fake). Constantly annoyed if understaffed but don’t plan ahead and add more crew to a shift and always asking someone to come in at the last minute. Never giving out contracted hours. Managers talking very rude to crew and others turning a blind eye and not saying anything.

    The pay and benefits are great, though the job is actually quite fun. Making milkshakes is very enjoyable

    Having to take care of bins and cleaning tables after customers have left them as a mess

  • Best thing

    Everyone is so lovely, it’s decent pay, it’s easy to organise my shifts, the work isn’t hard and they accommodate my uni timetable

    Worst thing

    Lots of favouritism, can get stressful sometimes, can get nasty customers

  • Best thing

    Pay and my staff

    Worst thing

    No support from head office or training managers, lack of support from area managers only interested in own reputation, turn blind eye to overworked hours and always negative feedback
