productive and fun work place with amazing and welcoming staff

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
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

Pros

working with amazing staff members

Cons

no guarantee on weekly hours being the same

Good money, good place temporarily

Taking customer orders, cleaning condiment area and restocking drinks. The managers and co-workers there are mostly helpful and friendly. Other than your main job (cashier, server or line) you are required to do an additional task (cleaning, making guacamole, washing dishes...)

Pros

Free lunch if work more than a certain number of hours

Meh.

Not the greatest, not the worst in the world either, but more bad than good. Pro's: Lovely colleagues, 50% off food onshift/20% otherwise Con's: Not enough hours - you're lied to when joining. You get told you'll get more hours if you prove yourself (which is fair enough). However if you're on a part time contract you're capped to a max of 5 shifts. They seem to hire tons of new people as opposed to increasing the hours of current staff. Hours aren't fairly distributed, people will fail to fulfil their basic responsibilities and still get a high amount of hours as opposed to others. Low Wages Management - Very hot and cold, one day they're okay with you, next day (most days) speak to you like you're worthless. Seem to lack to basic understanding that a member of staff who feels happy at work, will perform better. Thrown in at the deep end - there is SO much to learn and you're not given time to find your feet/groove. You have to hit the ground more than running and even that may not be enough.

Productive and run workplace

A typical day at work would be preparing for peak hours, talking to customers, being able to feel more relaxed when it's quiet but still have a rush during peak hours and everyone being able to focus.

Absolutely love it here

I love working at GYG Narellan, it was my second job so I wasn't new to the workforce at all.. But, I always feel like I am always learning something new every shift. The staff are so friendly and I have always felt like they are my work family, Natalia is an amazing boss along with Andreia and the other shift leaders at Narellan. The only downside is the pay, which should be improved as it is hard to survive on such a small rate... Other than that I love working here #2yearsstrong

Horrific Management

Management is absolutely horrific and ruined the work environment. Little to no care about employees and borderline abusive. Constant bullying and harassment from management, multiple threats of resignation, late pay almost always, unreasonable requests and hours as well as multiple last minute calls. Many employees were fired without reason or warning and under unfair circumstances. Disorganised and little training for new employees. Only redeeming qualities of the job was the culture and the friendly people there who are all in the same boat as you. Definitely one of the worst workplace experiences in my life, hope there are some changes to management as that is no way to treat employees.

Pros

Staff discounts, lax uniform

Cons

Abusive management, Unreasonable requests, low salary

Well

Overall was a good experience working at Guzman Y Gomez Coffs Harbour. The only doe said was the management team could not keep a professional gap between themselves and the employees causing favouritism among the crew members

Productive and fun workplace particularly in the Sunshine Coast

I found my experience at GYG fun and action packed. It was a great way for me to break into the hospitality industry and I had a great time working there.

Okay

Working at guzman y gomez i had to work fast paced with minimal errors, the hardest part about working is beggining as you are thrown into working with little time to prepare and build up confidence in working

Not that amazing

It was certainly a very very very stressful work place to be in , it was way to small for the amount of workers . Staff were unkind a lot and pushed you way over your limit .

Great place to work but does have it down falls

Depending on what time of day you work it can be super fast paced but still chill to work. Management is fine but I did't get as many hours as I'd like after the first few weeks. The customers are generally great and the other employees are a wonderful bunch of people

Fun Environment

Working at GYG was a fun high paced environment. I met a lot of really nice people and it made me look forward to going to work. For a first job I gained a lot of useful skills that I still have with me now.
