Worked full-time for over one year

Kitchen Manager (Former Employee)
Lexington-Fayette, KY

I worked at Chipotle full-time for more than a year

ProsNot a regular fast food job.
Accountability and responsibility is placed on everyone.
Very positive/constructive environment.
Very high incentives to move up in the company.
Very team/camaraderie based.
Very fast paced (you will never be bored or count down time till the end of your shift).
VERY high standards, easily the cleanest and most well run restaurant I have ever worked in.
Best job you could get w/o experience.

ConsVery hard work.
Pay as crew member until you move up (which is VERY realistic) is 8.50/hr.
At the end of the day its a hot sweaty, very fast paced, stressful food/beverage job.
Can easily become your life if you let it (quite avoidable if you put your foot down w/scheduling)

Advice to Senior ManagementNone. Chipotle's management style/strategy is amazing. Best management in a fast food job I have ever seen.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
