Chipotle – Why Work For Us?

CULTIVATING FUTURE LEADERS

 

START YOUR CAREER ROLLINGundefined

 

One of the many reasons why Chipotle is unlike other fast food companies is the fact that nearly all of the leaders are promoted from our crew. Many restaurant companies hire "professional" managers to run their restaurants and almost never look to their crews for new leaders. But last year at Chipotle, 97% of our general managers were promoted from our crews and because our company is growing, there's plenty of opportunity.

 Countless people who came simply looking for a job now find themselves leading dozens, or even thousands of people while enjoying a career that is totally fulfilling, fun, and financially rewarding beyond anything they thought possible. It's pretty simple: If you work hard, you'll get noticed and before you know it, you'll be on a roll.

 
 
 

 NO EXPERIENCE PREFERRED

undefinedWE'RE NOT LIKE OTHER FAST FOOD COMPANIES AND IT STARTS WITH OUR PEOPLE
When Steve Ells started Chipotle back in 1993, he only intended to open one restaurant—not a chain of more than 1,200. Because of that, he broke all of the rules and Chipotle became a new kind of fast food restaurant. In fact, we do just about everything differently and it starts with the people we hire to work in our restaurants.

 

We've learned that experience in other fast food restaurants isn't of much value at Chipotle. That's because we really cook food at Chipotle. And that's just the beginning of what we do differently. Our Crew members learn what they need to do on the job and in turn, they become the future leaders of our company. It's on-the-job training like you have never had before.

    Chipotle tends to be unorganized as a company in general sometimes to be totally honest.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Organize better and make sure the people that you promote to manager are actually benefiting and making positive changes for the company and crew not just themselves.

When Chipotle first opened, the idea was simple: demonstrate that food served fast didn't have to be a "fast-food" experience.

As a fast-growing company, we’re always... More
