Guzman Y Gomez Employee Review
Excellent opportunity as an employee to experience working in the kitchen.
It has been an amazing experience as student and also a cook to be part of the team in the Mexican kitchen. I have enjoyed my time and the shifts including the people who I met and colleagues who I have worked with.

The flexibility of rosters.
Low Hourly Rates
Management was terrible had management that was pushy, rude and inappropriate on various occasions , lots of drama and people quitting all the time, over-working those who relied on a working VISA as they had to work or they’d have to go back home. Unprofessional work place with inappropriate work relationships, awkward questions and everyone in your business. Often were understaffed and called in to work all the time or have to stay back if not organised. Really stressful would recommend working at a different job if wanting to work at a fast food place.
Staff food discount great food
Terrible management and constant staff drama
while working at Guzman i learned some very valuable skills that will stay with me for the rest of my working life.the management was amazing and very helpful when it came to swapping shifts if things had come upi wouldn't say there is a hard part to the job as it is very easy to pick up and learn everything you need to know to complete the set tasks .in my opinion the most enjoyable part of the job is being able to form connection with co workers, this makes sure that everything runs properly without problems
working with amazing staff members
no guarantee on weekly hours being the same
GYG is a great place to work at. The pay rates are amazing, you get to talk to customers and communicate within a team. Team leaders are way too demanding! I.e. 'Can you start the burrito bowl for drive thru?' followed by'Why are you doing drive thru!? Complete them in order!' Their expectations are so high, pushing exhausted workers just so they can have the number '1' next to their store name for five minutes. The atmosphere can be toxic at times, some people end up having to pick up the peak time slack while three or five workers are gathered together running amuck.The training is decent. Briefly outlines all the necessary processes of the restaurant, though don't be surprised if a manager is disappointed that you can't find the 'Extra meat button on the last page of the 8th tab. People will always be there to help you, but if you're really underperforming you won't get an opportunity to improve as you make mistakes. Instead you'll have fun cleaning out bins, or using a slicing machine when nobody trained you for it.
Good pay, work life balance
Short hours, hot/humid environment, demanding management
