    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 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.

    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,

    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!

    I have been working at Chipotle

    Pros

    The people are great. The management cares and are willing to help you. Everyone is fun to work with and understanding of people's needs.

    Cons

    It's a busy location so things can get hectic and unorganized. Not enough people are hired and working right now so responsibilities are stretched thin.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Express thanks to lower employees because we all work super hard and love what we do. Also long sleeve t shirts might be worth looking into.
