Advice to Management

I worked at the Chipotle in Downtown State College, PA at Penn State. I really liked that everyone there was around the same age and working for the same reasons. I have heard other stories about... people that have worked for Chipotle and did not enjoy their time there. My experience was much different because I was surrounded with like minded college student employees as well as young and effective managers. Everyone there picked up their slack and worked very hard. Being awarded with the highest Throughput Efficiency out of all 2,752 locations, we learned that being friendly and efficient were the most important parts of the job. I enjoyed my time there and made some life long connections. If you are looking for a flexible part-time job, this is the place for you!
