Terrible Experience to say the least.

Crew Member (Former Employee)
Finneytown, OH

I worked at Chipotle part-time for less than a year

ProsThere are a few pros to working at Chipotle, including paid breaks, one free meal on the clock and 50% employee discount off the clock.

ConsI'm not trying to bash the company in any way, but this was my personal list of cons working there for one month:
- management lost my application
- management could not set up my direct deposit
- took management forever to get my employee ID number (needed to clock in, as well as to get your pay)
- what little training I was provided was not sufficient
- you are constantly being timed if you are doing prep
- i feel i had biased reviews from managers on my timing (they kept telling me I wasn't working fast enough, when I was working just as fast as my fellow employees and was prepping alongside one of the managers and I was keeping pace with them)
- I was told I was too slow working the line (where your put the food together for customers), yet in my section I had 6-8 customers' orders waiting on the next person's section to do their part so that I could have any room to take more orders.
- the most hours I was scheduled in a week was 20, usually averaging 18ish. and my last week they had me scheduled 11 hours.

Advice to Senior Management- Invest in training your employees correctly, it will go a long way.
- Be more organized
- Management needs better training

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Frustrating, stressfull, and unrewarding. That's the Chipotle experience!

Grill (Former Employee)
Los Angeles, CA

I worked at Chipotle part-time for less than a year

Pros: Almost all of your co-workers will be easy and fun to work with, you can't beat learning how to make great… Cons: Micromanagement is never easy to deal with. Restaurant environments are always fast-paced and and often frantic but it doesn't make it… Advice to Senior Management: Order is everything, without it nothing gets accomplished. Morale is equally important. Though money is definitely a… More
