Overall Reviews at Five Guys
Goal driven with room for advancement
I started aa crew and went to management within 3 months. Working there for 3 years really was a lot of fun. Management is a big commitment, but is worth the extra effort.

Very fun a fast paced g
It’s a fun job and everyone is nice to you and you get the hang of it fast. There always room to move up of even get a raise. The only hard part is learning how to work the register

Burger Joint job with great team members
Five Guys Burgers and Fries' demographic is not the health conscious population, but for a burger joint, they do what they do very well. The team members here were really great.

Fast pace. Time goes by quickly. WAY too much wor kn for the pay. They want all of you and for min. wage. No holiday pay or OT for 8+ hrs. +
Tips equal 2 to 5 dollars a shift. Even when you deliver orders curbside you hardly make tips which are pooled....customers want the extra service but then dont tip. Staff is taking risk working with public all the way through covid. They're hesitant to come in but staff is there daily. Customers could show appreciation for extra service and simply tip $1.00. Not a living wage . Opening and especially closing shifts are brutal. Awesome general manager at my store...really fair and honest but most of lower management has never managed anywhere else so they are short sighted. No empowerment given to employees. Even after 8 hr. Shift, meal is still not free. Half off. They never say if your cash drawer is accurate. One mgr so rude to staff that customers ask who the heck is that person?. Good starter job only. No background check. No good promotion opportunities if you are not with "in" group....or if you have any kind of record. But will hire you for non supervisory positions. show up. Be on
time have a positive attitude. Be clean. Open to learn. That's all it takes!
ProsNo background check always hiring fast paced nice co workers excellent product
ConsPromotions rare, lots if politics, low pay for physically demanding closing shift (they should pay closers more $), incentive opportunities for $., you can wear long sleeve tee shirt as long as theres no writing on it.
Great place to work but in need of a better general manager.
The environment of Five Guys is very quick and hands on. It requires everyone on staff to work together and think on their feet. Some managers were more desirable and seemed better equipped for the job at hand than others.
ProsGreat learning experience.
I enjoyed working there. I just wanted to find something else outside of the fast food industry. If you can flourish in a fast environment and can learn quickly, this is the job for you.
ConsIt can be stressful during a dinner rush
Great food and great co workers Fn work enviroment

Five guys was a great job for me. It was very fun and they paid great. They try their best to give you the best experience ever as a customer and employee. It was overall a great friendly environment to be around.
This company has been my life for 9 years. I had given a lot to this company and it has given a lot back. I learned a lot over the years and this company has helped me grow as a person.
