    I worked at Chipotle part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    -free meal during every shift
    -50% off when you're not working
    -medical and dental insurance available
    -tuition reimbursement after 12 months of working there
    -did I mention free meal every shift :)

    Cons

    -extremely fast paced
    -sometimes super rude and hangry customers
    -management is hit or miss
    -you hear about some outbreak every 2 years (ex: ecoli & neurovirus)
    -my back and feet hurt all the time

    Advice to Management

    Be consistent with rules and procedures in every chipotle location with management. Stop micromanaging and maybe your turnover rates won't be so high.

    I worked at Chipotle full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    People who you work with (not managers) and seeing the regular customers.

    Cons

    Working every weekend and and when you have to close and not get out until 1am because crew won't move to get stuff done. and then you have to open the next day is real hard.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees the way you want to be treated and help your management staff
