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

the team environment and management is inconsistent

Its hard to work in an organisation who's team members are not cooperative. The management suggests values that are necessary in the workplace however, many do not act in accordance with the rules. It is a bit toxic working there because they do not help you grow and i feel pressured all the time.

Disrespectful and don't know how to run a business

Awful management, make promises at the start they don't intend on keeping. If you've above 18 years of age expect 1 shift a week. The managers are disrespectful.

Pros

the people you work with

Cons

management, hours, pay

Productive workplace

Very busy restaurant where everybody, when it was necessary, shared the tasks, including the manager and the owner. I have learnt a lot working there.. such a good experience!

It's what you'd expect

Nothing surprising, standard fast-food workplace but a bit cleaner and a bit relaxed. There isn't much else to write about it, standard hospitality job like any fast food place.

Pros

A bit relaxed

Fast paced work environment with a friendly work force

It has a fast paced work environment due to its location. Workers are expected to maintain a fast work habit. However, the employer is extremely understanding and flexible.

Terrible management

If you want to be disrespected and treated really bad, go and work there. The supervisor thinks that she can do whatever she wants with the staff. The treatment overall is horrible.

Pros

Good co workers

Cons

Rude supervision, terrible treatment

GYG is an Employer of choice

In my 6 years with GYG I have seen this company grow from 15 units to over 120. Their commitment to cultural & operational excellence has enabled the company to attain the sales and attract the talent to propel them upward. This is a company that is committed to "doing things right" in all aspects of its business. They are not frugal, but at the same time manage their resources with accountability as to facilitate the best outcomes for all parties, not just the company. For this, they have my utmost respect. Its a great organization to be a part of, and anyone given the opportunity should consider themselves lucky to be chosen to work with them. They walk the talk.

Pros

Honest, clear expectations, free lunches, company events

Cons

None

High energy and fast paced environment that awarded cheerful and positive attitudes.

I learned how to make authentic Mexican cuisine. Management was often highly stressed and if effected the work life negatively. The hardest part of the job was keeping up with the demand during the first months of being open. The most enjoying part of the job was the relationship that was built with the other employees.

Pros

Free meals

Cons

Difficult management
