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
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
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
The job was difficult, but staff and atmosphere were friendly and made it worthwhile. The majority of management facilitated a positive relationship with their workers that was mutual and respectful. Issues arrived during new introductions in management which created tension and anxiety in the workplace, causing myself and other colleagues to resign. A major problem came from one particular manager who created an unsupportive, toxic environment that left everyone anxious and frustrated. This manager would belittle staff, create unrealistic demands, pick favourites and disrespect their team. This person lacked self-awareness and as a result a disproportionate ego.
Discount, Friendly team, Challenging

If you can live off 3 hours a week then apply for a job here.If you know what you are doing and don't need any on job training then apply here.If the manager or shift leader have a problem with you and your a mind reader then apply here.If your young and want to do whatever you like than work here.If it's your first job and want to be told you have a bad attitude then apply here.If you want to work for a manager that does not communicate and the owner supports that then apply here.
It’s good n wonderful to learn something new. Any kind of situation or place where you are in and have some experience. It would be added values towards your personal learning experience as far as your management skills that could help you to boost up your level of learning skills and experiences that could help in future.
Free staff meals
Normal working hours as follow MOM rules
The management was pretty okay but sometimes they would suddenly cancel my shift or move me to other locations. They are also very flexible with allocating shifts according to your availability. The people there are very friendly, patient and overall fun to work with. The work environment is quite enjoyable and comfortable and the pay is decent for a part-timer.
Quite hectic during rush hours
Work here is alright, people you work with are generally pretty cool, job isn't too hard either though it takes a month or so to get the hang of. Managers change like a roller coasters, it gets annoying because you have to change the way you do things every month or so and make sure you get ready to get guilted into doing shifts. Be firm about when you can and can't work and you should be good. The rushes during the day can be pretty stressful, no matter the job your doing. Be prepared to jump between 2 or more jobs at once. Customers sometimes dont know the difference between a burrito and a sandwich so get ready for that. The max pay you can get before management is around $22.70. All in all its a job, you get shifts (not necessarily the ones you want), the people are cool, managers 80% of the time suck and the work is really stressful during rush periods. My recommendation is to not work here for longer than a year.
Free lunches if your a shift leader, 50% off for staff, people are nice!
Managers aren't cool, lots of guilting, staff often neglected, broken things never get fixed, stress stress stress, out of work responsibilities for a fast food job.
Working within a team who care about customer service and working well together to achieve goals. The pay is good, depending on what you are satisfied with. Management is great and has their staff and teams best interest in mind.
Free Lunches, Great Team and Management
Great environment. Brand new restaurant with only barely any snags to work out as they branch over from their home base of chains in Australia to the vast marketplace of the United States. Exciting to be in an position with so many stores opening up that the opportunity to strive and rise through management ranks is so apparent in the work ethic of the crew.
understanding and flexible

descansos no pagos
After working with the company for over 2 years and building my way up the management ladder becoming a shift leader meant so much to me but not everyone would do what they’re supposed to in the management loop and it was the biggest downfall to where I left that company and I tell everyone it’s a good job while your in school that’s it I wouldn’t recommend working for them out of school
