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.

    I have been working at Chipotle part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    It is a very fun and rewarding environment. You are usually surrounded by great people and great managers. There are lots of opportunity here if you plan on moving up in the company. Amazing culture depending on which store you work at. If you are looking to learn leadership skills, this is the place to do it.

    Cons

    Sometimes you have to deal with people who don't want to be there to work. Pay is not bad but could always be better. Takes a lot of time to move up in the company (if you want your own store).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management is great. Best place I've ever worked for.

When Chipotle first opened, the idea was simple: demonstrate that food served fast didn't have to be a "fast-food" experience. We use high-quality raw ingredients, classic cooking methods and a distinctive interior design, and provide an exceptional customer experience—features more frequently found in the world of fine dining. As a fast-growing company, we’re always looking... More
