    HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE

    Line Worker (Former Employee)
    Sterling, VA

    ProsFree food, pretty good pay considering that it is a fast food place. It was pretty good until it started becoming stressful to a point where I was barely even allowed my five minute break unless I was working at least five hours.

    ConsHorrible hours, constantly moving fast behind a hot line, VERY rude customers.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGive better hours!!!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Amazing

    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.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNone
