Current Employee - Crew in Plano, TX

I have been working at Chipotle full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Great Crew and Managers
Great opportunity to learn on the job
Skills will transfer well to similar jobs, giving me a leg up
Structured training system

Cons

Strict hours
Schedules are not ready until the weekend before the schedule starts. (You don't know if you are working on Monday until Saturday or Sunday.)
The work is demanding and the same thing everyday. The only things that change are the quantities of prep and most of the customers are: rice without cilantro, chips in the bowl, cilantro on the side,...)

Recommends
Neutral Outlook
No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    The people you work with are great. You get payed lunch and a free meal. They train you to be a manager in as little as 3 months.

    Cons

    You have to memorize a lot of things in order to actually succed in the company. They are very strict about a lot of things. The managaer changes the schedule 2 - 3 times a week. they puch to be perfect. You can only get one thing for half the price when you are not working there. The raises suck.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    HIre less people and give them more hours.

    Former Employee - Crew Member in Dayton, OH

    I worked at Chipotle part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    -Family feel to the restaurant.
    -Development journals keep you moving forward and help you to feel like you are being invested in as an employee.

    Cons

    -It can be pretty exhausting. When they are short staffed they will schedule you for 40 plus hours a week.
    -Upper level politics can really give a blow to the moral of the store. Especially for those looking to gain a promotion.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reward people based on their hard work, not on personal relationships or company politics.

    Keep the morale high in the stores, the job is tough but it can be fun if the management has the right attitude.
