According to Indeed, if you’re interested in joining the Five Guys team, you can expect to get paid an average hourly amount of $9.62 for cooks and $10.95 for crew members. Though that may seem fair, when compared to the amount that Smashburger employees make, it’s actually quite low. The same goes for restaurant staff members and cashiers, who only make an average of $11.80 and $9.35 an hour, respectively.
And what about those who have a little more responsibility? That’s actually where the pay starts to increase. Shift leaders can bring in about $12.57 per hour, while shift managers make $13.17. General managers, however, get over $2.50 more with their hourly rate being $15.95. Depending on who you are, the $58,858 yearly salary (or $30.51 hourly rate) that area managers make could be impressive, but that’s truly all about perspective. As always though, these rates are all subject to change based on a number of factors including location, experience, and required job duties. But, if the option to have unlimited fries and burgers is one of the perks of the job, sign us up.
