Free Food when working shifts

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Empower employees
Engage with the crew members regularly instead of spending time watching the cameras and what crew members are not doing instead of being on the floor.

    I have been working at Chipotle full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    -- The atmosphere is pleasant to be in, it is not a typical fast food style establishment.

    -- Every employee gets a Development Journal. Containing;
        - Checklist's for each stage of the employee's progression.
        - Weekly entry section to be filled out during 1 on 1 talks with their Manager.
        - Note's section for writing down technical instructions (computer tasks, inventory tips, ect.)

    -- Paid breaks, every lunch break includes free meal.

    -- Quick promotions*

    Cons

    ** Horrible turnover rate - 80%+ of employee's are employed less than 6 months. **

    - Poor training. Assume that you will be training yourself on specific details.
    - After first few weeks, expect inconsistant hours.
    - Very positive interactions between new hires and managment for first week or so. It is just a front.
    - Tolerates immaturity, gossip, and disparagement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize Top preformers and acknoledge them for their work.
    Accept that low performers (no matter how "cool") need to be let go.
    Enforce standards at all times, not just before inspections and corprate visits.
