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

Pros

very friendly and understanding company, organic and hormone free food, very clean and safety conscious, only promotes from within, free lunch and paid breaks with half off 1 take home meal, says thank you and recognizes when you do anything, let's you leave if needed emotionally.

Cons

pays just a little over minimum wage, doesn't give you 40 hours a week even though stated did at interview, works you pretty hard-on your feet/pushed to be faster the entire shift.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

could be a little softer on staff and let them have a breather every once in awhile especially if break given 2 hours into a 7 hour shift, but overall very good company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When I was interviewed at Chipotle, I was asked if I was interested in managing my own restaurant someday. I'm a student; I have other ambitions than managing a Chipotle. A job that hires people "with no experience necessary" should not expect their employees to restauranteur their own Chipotle some day. Sometimes people just need a job. How difficult is that? I began to realize that this company hires people with the intention of them expanding the company, and ultimately making Chipotle more money in the future. I felt like their "ethics" were dismissed in the wake of this. How can I respect a company that prides themselves on the motto "food with integrity" when they throw away food when "it starts to look dry?" When you expose cooked meat to oxygen, it looks dry in like five minutes. That does not mean it's unfit to eat. This company needs of focus on what they stand for (ethics) instead of their capitalistic motivations.
