    Take care of non-restaurant employees, like you do restaurant employees.

    Former Employee - Front-line Staff in Malibu, CA

    I worked at Chipotle part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Training is simple and quick.
    Pay is competitive compared to other fast food restaurant industries.
    Time goes by fast because restaurant is always busy.
    Can eat for free while working there as much as you want!
    50% discount on food when off-duty (only once a day, for yourself)

    Cons

    Limited amount of roles. Can get pretty repetitive after awhile. The hours are inflexible because everybody wants to good hours.
    Not much for growth or leadership other than bossing around people slightly below you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work

    I worked at Chipotle part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The company has many goals set in each restaurant and the staff works hard to reach these goals. The restaurants are very clean and the crew members are very welcoming. the customers loved coming back to the restaurant that I worked at.

    Cons

    Sometimes the company (well at least the chipotle I worked at) cares so much about its goals that they ended up forgetting about the crews needs.

    I worked at Chipotle part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    If you like to be active in a job, you will always have something to do here.
    It's not a boring routine, depending on your co-workers and ambition.

    Cons

    Customers can get hectic. But that's expected.
    Manager was extremely power seeking, had bad temper, took advantage of his postion.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cooperate should run a month to month secret camera test to really see how the managers are treating their employees.

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

    Pros

    - free employee meals when working
    - 50% off when you're not working
    - paid breaks
    - coworkers
    - flexible scheduling

    Cons

    - occasional favoritism when it comes to promoting
    - high stress/overwhelming if your store gets high traffic
    - lot of expectations
    - pay not enough for what's expected of you imo

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Please fight for the raises of your employees more and this is not to say that this applies to all managers because I've had managers in the past who cared a lot. Just doesn't seem too much lately with some of the managers that I have now.
