One of the most challenging and rewarding jobs I've ever had.

Service Manager (Current Employee)

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

ProsI love the people culture at Chipotle. We receive a ton of applications and we only hire the best of the best. After starting from the bottom and working my way up at Chipotle for a little over a year, I have a 401K, a week's paid vacation, and an employee stock purchase plan. Your hard work will be rewarded here. Chipotle is a growing company and there is a ton of opportunity for advancement.

ConsIt's the toughest job I've ever had. If you're not constantly working, be prepared to have a reality check. Prep and Grill at Chipotle are the toughest jobs. The workload is immense and at times it's excessive. The time expectations for Prep and Grill are super-human, and need to be revised to be more realistic.

Advice to Senior ManagementListen to your crews and their concerns. Don't ever forget about the pepper. If you want to maintain 100% Chipotle high standards, then re-evaluate the time expectations or be prepared for your crews to cut corners.

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