Good for first job
A good place to work, some of team members are very kind and helpful, more pros than cons working for five guys, pay is good and decent, challenges you to improve on yourself and skills

Great place to begin a career or a good place for a student
Overall it is a great place, although the job itself is very demanding, even more so as a male because you get to do more physical work that requires lifting etc., the salary is very good especially considering that everyone is paid the same entry salary no matter the age. Moreover, a lot of possibilities to move forward and develop, from Crew Member to QC, then Shift Manager and so on... They do however lack employees and more then often you would be called to come to work (on your time off) and your day-plan is ruined. Same goes for rota that is getting ready and posted on Saturday and start on Monday, you cannot plan anything. Another issue, secret shoppers - incentive that is very dependent on team performance and there are weeks when you get only the basic salary because someone else keeps messing up. Nonetheless, very flexible hours, GREAT team, the best I have ever worked with, management that is very understanding and helpful. I would 100% recommend the job for a student but be aware, this job can get extremely physical, arguably much more then compared to other fast-food (casual-food) chains. All in all, no matter the job, with a good team literally everything is doable and even if the job itself is hard, with good people a work-day goes smoothly and that's what you will find in Five Guys, they do pay a lot of attention to being a right person for the team.

Fun workplace but lack of progression
Five guys is a great company to work for if you like a fast paced, team oriented workplace. Free meals every shift and good family-like crew. Management is lacking in some ways but that depends on which store you work at.

Depressing, yet pays well
The job is quite depressing as you work in an often very hot, cramped and intense environment- following often strange and strict procedures. The company constantly reminds you that you are "part of a family " but its clear they care nothing more than for profit. Good workmates will make the job more tolerable, as you'll spend all your time with a team.

Not too bad
Five guys isn’t a bad place to work, the crew are all friendly and the pay is okay. The bad part is the management and hours. Doesn’t matter how many hours you’re contracted.
