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

    Pros

    The food at Chipotle is always great so I did not mind being around it all the time. My coworkers were energetic and great to work with.

    Cons

    Chipotle will work you hard and sometimes it feels like we are being way underpaid for the stress we face during huge rush hours.

    Pros

    The best part about working for Chipotle is that drinking the Kool Aid will open all the doors you can imagine and beyond. Chipotle pays better than a typical fast food place, the food is great and learning the job is fun if you're motivated to do well, have a brain, and like learning new things. It's usually pretty busy, which is a plus.

    Cons

    Some stores project an arrogant air of superiority. You can smell it in the interview, so go with your gut. If you don't gel with the managers (and possibly crew) you interview with, move on. It might be a bad store, it might just be that the store isn't right for you and the Chipotle down the road a bit might be a better fit if you give it a shot.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Place more emphasis on management and leadership training beyond the crew level. The Chipotle vision and all that is great and should be engrained in the crew so that they carry it on through their steps in management, but the managers I've worked with seem like glorified crew who can't monitor the flow of business, identify and fix slow points, take care of food safety beyond the checklist, and might be more concerned with being everybody's best bud than making sure the restaurant is functional.

    Pros

    Chipotle promotes from within! They have a great tools for developing people into management and the company takes really good care of their employees! We take pride in helping local farmers, having high standards and caring for our food..for the benefit of our future, the customers.

    Cons

    The only thing i could think of is that either, you could be under staffed or everyone may not pull their own weight..this could make your days over worked, stressful or just not a positive shift.

    Pros

    If you want to develop as a person and learn traits to help with any future careers, this is the place to work.

    Cons

    Chipotle doesn't drug test, therefore you may deal with people who enjoy "recreational activities" out of work. Working with people like these makes it difficult to work efficiently and effectively.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You guys are awesome and very knowledgeable. Continue to be understanding and keep it friendly and helpful.

    Pros

    Great pace for me, as it was much more hands on activity than any other previous jobs I had. At the location of my Chipotle, the people were very friendly towards me.

    Cons

    The pace could get quite difficult during lunch hours, as there is usually a lot of people that come in at this time. The pay could have been a little better, but not much complaints overall.
