    Pros

    You don't have to worry about working for a company that's doing bad things like harming animals, using dangerous chemicals in their food, producing very unhealthy food etc. When you serve food to your customers, you know you're giving them real food. Working in the kitchen shows me that they really just use real, healthy ingredients. It's nice to know that you're representing a company that has real integrity.

    Cons

    It's a lot of work, you have to know how to do prep, line and grill. You hardly ever leave on time and a lot is expected of you. You can only really take your break when the line dies down so you're gonna be working hungry a lot.

    Advice to Management

    The management at the Chipotle where I work is really friendly and approachable, all the managers work in prep, grill, line etc, it's not like they're some unreachable force or something. I'm not like a star employee or anything, I get confused and make stupid mistakes sometimes and bother them with a lot of questions but they've always been super nice and helpful!

    I worked at Chipotle full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    It gives you great addition to the cooking field. I learned the proper way to slice organic fruits and vegetables, meats and such. I enjoyed the variety of customers that I've encountered also.

    Cons

    Working with individuals who will do what ever it takes to get on top, even screw you over. Snakes.

    Advice to Management

    Be careful who you hire verses who you fire.

    I worked at Chipotle part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Free meal every shift + half off any other time (saves you money while also paying you) Paid breaks Most managers want to help cross-train and teach you new skills Fun job because you get to see EVERY student (honestly...) Great corporate culture and vision

    Cons

    Shifts (especially opening or closing) can be seven+ hours Most employees are great to work with, but some don't take it seriously (no call, no show) Food service is what it is, y'all.

    I worked at Chipotle full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Free food, people culture, company vision, positive atmosphere, gmo free, organic, food with integrity

    Cons

    Management doesn't know what they're doing, long hours, poor home/work balance, pay rate, poor training, not set up for success

    Advice to Management

    Please send a restaurateur to your Louisiana stores. Make sure all of your employees are set up for success before blindly promoting them.
