    I have been working at Chipotle full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Paid Breaks, Easy Advancement, Great Benefits, Team Atmosphere, Proud to say you work there, really good food that you eat for free.

    Cons

    If you are just looking for a job, this is not the place for you. You have to want to better your life and learn how to put others before yourself. If you don't know how to do that, or don't want to do that, stay away cause you will fail.

    I worked at Chipotle part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The work atmosphere is really good. It's like a big family. Everyone tries to help eachother around. If managers see your potential and that you are working really hard, they will help you move up in the company.

    Cons

    It can be really stressfull at times. Some customers can be really rude. You have to move pretty fast but also give good customer service and mantain a clean working area.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to understand that we can only do so many things at a time.

    Pros

    The working atmosphere is very good to me. I made friends with my other crew members and even the managers. There is no gap between us.

    Hope they pay more for our hard working.

    Pros

    easy to become manager, get a raise every 6 months, there are plenty of opportunities to go up and work with different stores around your city.

    Cons

    the schedule always changes, the hours are never consistent, the managers are jerks, a lot of times they over work you, for example they love to send people home early and leave who ever is closing to deal with the extra work, and they tend to fire people real quick for silly reasons,

    Pros

    You learn how important is make others around you better, also you learn how to judge better who is or not a "to performer". If you work hard you will get promoted quickly.

    Cons

    How to make others better, faster and inspire them at the same time without make them feel not good at what they are doing. Try to keep the standard and follow how every crew member develop in the right way. And the worse is find good people to work with.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Always work hard and don't get frustrated when the thinks are not what the tell you. If you keep pushing yourself you will get what are working for. Always keep a good relation with you GM,AM or TL that helps a lot.

    Chipotle is a fast paced job. It can be very demanding and overwhelming at times but also very rewarding.

    Pros

    The crew is very close-knit! 99% of your crew will be very friendly and hardworking. They love for everyone to be close and encourage you to be friends. Also, Chipotle is all about constructive criticism. You will have people constantly telling you the proper way to do things, especially when you first start.

    Cons

    Chipotle is very DEMANDING. It has to be your life. they will expect you to be there whenever they need you, day or night! It is not a job, it is a lifestyle!
