Former Employee - General Manager in Minneapolis, MN
Former Employee - General Manager in Minneapolis, MN

I worked at Chipotle full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Great Food
Great employees...
many opportunities for growth
Many opportunities to have fun throughout the day.
They STRIVE for a great culture.
Company Car
three weeks vacation
low base pay

Cons

...but fall WAY short; extremely gossipy and backstabbing culture is rampant.
It's a boys club--even though there may be a woman or two.
EVERYBODY has to like you...even people who have never MET you!!!
Always on the verge of being fired.
Had to fire those Great employees because they didn't want to be a manager.
High skill job at low pay for crew
They make you feel like a bad manager; even when you knew you weren't.
extremely OCD about everything being perfect. If you are not perfect all the time...gossip begins.
Minneapolis is becoming a notorious bad market to work for in this company.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop firing people to keep your job. It's really transparent, don't you think?
stop actively throwing people under the bus.
Don't throw stones in Glass houses.
Realize high volume restaurants are NOT the same as low volume.
Be a leader; not a tattle tail...it makes you look incompetent and unprofessional.

Positive Outlook

    Pros

    Great environment, fun and fast paced position.

    Cons

    Management is a joke.. Their turnover rate is discouraging for anyone seeking management positions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop firing managers all of the time.. it makes for chaos for your workers and stresses out the other managers.. who eventually get worn out and quit or fired.

    Pros

    Decent starting wage of $9.00 a great deal of growth opportunities and good benefits, good locations and opening more this year.

    Cons

    not many only thing i can say is the hours aren't divided equally, you're either a closer or an opener. obvious favorites

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat everyone equally.
