I have been working at Chipotle

Pros

The fast pace is exciting and keeps it from getting boring. High standards are challenging but not unmanageable. Depends on the store, but I have worked for two so far and have enjoyed both.

Cons

Claim to encourage empowerment and independent thinking but often quash such attempts in reality. Many rules seem to have been made by people who have never set foot in one of the restaurants. Don't have a whole lot of other work experience to base this on, but I hear that the work is harder and the pay is less here than some other places.

    Pros

    Chipotle tastes amazing and you get a free meal when you work.

    Cons

    The wages are way too low for the amount of manual labor required. They have a psuedostructure in place to offer those a way to progress in the company but it is a lot of work for a .50 to 2 dollar increase in pay. A lot of the workers there are not fluent in English so if you do not speak Spanish you will not be able to communicate with your coworkers effectively or feel like you fit in. I also had something stolen from me from by a fellow coworker while I worked there and the management was hesitant to lay the blame on the staff even though only employees could access the storage room where my item was located. You also have to use your pitiful wages to purchase "shoes for crews" and a company uniform. I was employed in 2010 so things may have changed.
