    I have been working at Chipotle full-time

    Pros

    Great place to learn how to manage time. Also a great place to perfect communication skills. Also a place that makes you grind to get to the next position.

    Cons

    Sometimes your success depends too much on those who are working for you. Also there are a lot of changes week to week, month to month. The way that your performance is graded is often based on chance and not skill.
