Pros

-Amazing food philosophy -Lots of fun (when you have enough people) -Promotes from within -Everything is pretty much figured out for you as far as admin duties, you just need to follow them -Company is growing so fast there are so many open positions -VEGAS conference!

Cons

-60+ hours a week if you are lucky, and when you are home it is still not over -No work/life balance unless you are a crew member -Minimal feedback and seldom praise once you are salary -No training or solid structure for running your own restaurant, you basically "learn as you go" -Many changes to procedures for flighty reasons which is labeled "empowerment" -Path of communication from upper to lower management is foggy -Big push for "Restaurateur" but no help to get there with removing low performers and recruiting the right people--just a lot of concentration on minute details that are not the concern yet

Advice to Management

Upper management please spend more time talking to your GMs and teams. Seriously, just call your GMs and ask exactly what they need, they will know -- then help! Prioritize and simplify. Don't allow them to do the job of everyone in the restaurant, instead train them to be a better leader. Make sure your top performers are inspired or they will lose hope and walk away.

    I worked at Chipotle part-time

    Pros

    Free chipotle , easy hours in the morning

    Cons

    They lie to you from the Beginning with empty promises. I was promised a promotion within 60 days to management. I was there 3 months and had only gotten signed off on one station. They treat you like a slave, and the benefits are crap.

    Advice to Management

    How about HR and management actually listen to employees problems. I would also suggest you not hire managers who are homophobic. You are lucky I didn't seek legal action against the management at the centennial store.

    Schedules came out way late managers picked favorites expect to work over 40 hours a week with little money customers are picky training was horrible environment was intimidating

    Advice to Management

    Train your staff better, don't just through them on to the line and expect them to know and then punish them for not doing it right.
