    Great till the end.

    General Manager (Current Employee) Eatontown, NJ

    ProsTons of room for advancement, great vision, great food, and great people culture.

    ConsExtremely high standards and expectations and sometimes not achievable. Always looking to do more with less.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWhen someone puts their blood and sweat into making your company grow for 8 years. When it comes time to let them go, a severance would be nice way to say thank you. 8 years and all I get is "there is the door ."

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE

    Line Worker (Former Employee) Sterling, VA

    Advice to Senior ManagementGive better hours!!!

    Amazing

    Team Member (Former Employee) Towson, MD

    ProsWorking for Chipotle is as good as it gets for a part time job. Great salary, opportunities to grow, managment/leadership etc.

    ConsSometimes the lines get really long and the pressure to speed up the processes increases but overall the pros outweigh the cons. Also it is very tough to move up the corporate latter.
