    I have been working at Acapulco/EL Torito Restaurants full-time (more than 3 years)


    The people that work for you, such loyalty and devotion to helping you make an impact in your store.


    Executive management is not supportive and tear you down. Extreme amounts of unnecessary paperwork. 14 to 15 hour days, 6 days a week.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep it simple. Go back to basics and move forward. Stay consistent in your approach.
