Not great, not terrible
Working at Five Guys is hard work. The work is surprisingly physical and stressful. Working in a busy, hot environment. I would say that you must understand that it working at Five Guys is not a career. Make sure you have other goals/plans for the future. Be prepared for a lot of cleaning, a lot of prep and long days. Believe me when I say there is a lot of cleaning. You will do an 8 hour shift then spend a couple hours cleaning the whole place when it closes. The managers will choose ideal shifts for themselves and give you less desirable ones like closes. If you are lucky you will be taught all the stations you could work at. If you are unlucky you will be taught 1 station and stay there throughout your time working there.You start off on fairly decent pay especially if you are young and are treated to free food on your break and unlimited drinks from the Coca Cola Freestyle machine throughout your shift.

When I first started working there everything was fine, however when they hired a new manager everybody started leaving because they created a toxic environment and I did not feel safe because of the certain tasks they were asking for. Management was abusive.
Stressful & poor management
Poor management - they clearly have favourites and do not care about other staff members. Inconsistent hours. Only given the next weeks rota the day before.
Five guys was an amazing company to work for the mangers cared for you like you were family the pay there was amazing the only down side was they would work you constantly
Great place to work
Overall a great place to work, everyone is very helpful and you're provided with lots of training. The only bad thing about working there is people can be a bit cliquey.
