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

    Pros

    You have a little more wiggle room than most folks that work on the line. And the work is a bit more interesting than wrapping burritos. Plus free food is always nice.

    Cons

    As a grill cook you are responsible for everything. When I first started I really enjoyed the job but as time passed on I found myself being the only cook in a very busy location. No matter how busy it was I was either washing dishes, cleaning, or cooking food with the help of no one. As the line people just sat there "waiting" for customers. The last straw was when we had a slew of call outs, meaning that a normal shift that needed 6 people to work was down to 4 people, due to the lax rules concerning call outs. Many a shift of working undermanned finally put the nail on the coffin. As I was going in to work at 4 P.M. and coming out at nearly 2 or 3 A.M. because of the amount of people that always called out. Not a schedule any college student can keep up with.

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

    Pros

    Free Employee Meal and Paid lunch break

    Cons

    •Always short staffed. •System clocks employees out at 11:30 but wouldn’t get finished working until 1am because of how short staffed it is, also management doesn’t pay you for the hour and a half you spent doing free labor. •Grill cook is an extremely stressful overwhelming job and they expect you to be an expert by your second day. •Management gossips and talks negatively about employees whom are mostly minors. •Management is very poor to the point where there seems to be no manager around because they don’t want to be bother and instead be sitting in their office. • Complaints are a regular thing there
