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

    Pros

    Room to grow Lots of new skills can be learned

    Cons

    Coworkers stepping on necks to move up Some sabatoge

    Advice to Management

    The worker interviews to help pick new hires is great. However the promotion process should not rely solely on them. You could be the best worker to ever work there. But if one employee doesnt like you, they can literally vote against you and you will not be promoted.

    I worked at Chipotle part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Very good benefits offered. Quality ingredients. Great company values. A free meal and paid breaks are very useful and appreciated.

    Cons

    Repetitive cutting motions as a grill cook tends to cause wrist and finger pain after long hours of work if you work at a busy restaurant. The problem is exacerbated if there are not any sharp knifes available.

    Advice to Management

    Figure out a way to ensure there is always a supply of sharp knifes to ensure cutting meat and cilantro is easier on the grill cook's wrist and fingers.
