    I have been working at Chipotle full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Every Chipotle I've worked at has had a great management team and great coworkers. There is a lot of opportunity to get promoted fairly quickly if you're committed. For the type of job (customer service, food) it's been pretty good.

    Cons

    They have very high standards and expect more out of their workers than many other food chains. It's not overwhelming, but it can get tiring.

    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.

    I worked at Chipotle full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Free food on breaks. Work around your schedule.

    Cons

    Unprofessional. Managers have no work ethic. Fire without warning. Don't tell you you're getting fired, just take you off of the schedule.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please make sure you get ahold of employees who are let go. Don't let people work with food who don't care, many customers complained about food poisoning multiple times and NOTHING was done about it.

    Pros

    - Your growth is dependent on your output. Ie. Work hard and you'll get a promotion.
    - In a "restaurateur" store there is a lot of focus on personal development beyond how fast can you cut cilantro.

    Cons

    - Scheduling is a challenge requiring you to be available nearly all the time as expected in this industry.
    - Raises are minimal.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to reach for the restaurateur stores. As managers become restaurateurs they are much more proficient and supply a much more valuable experience to their employees.
