Why is managing people so important at Five Guys?

As a team-based work environment, it is important for everyone in our kitchens to be on the same page. Crew energy and communication is vital. Watching our management teams motivate their crew members from the front line is a site to behold, and ensuring customers arrive happy and leave even happier is their goal. Without it, customer service can suffer. Being able to lead and motivate people is no small feat. 

Good leadership drives that success.

In every Five Guys store, leadership comes from the top down. When working for the success of your team, you're not just managing finances and supplies; you're also looking after your crew members to ensure they have what they need to come to work enthusiastically, have fun while doing their jobs successfully and go home knowing that their efforts were recognized.
