    Pros

    The working atmosphere is very good to me. I made friends with my other crew members and even the managers. There is no gap between us.

    Cons

    Hope they pay more for our hard working.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    should elevate hard working members, not members who can talk

    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,

    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.

    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.
