    I have been working at Chipotle full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Chipotle is a way of life not just a job. In 6 months i have learned from many people and continue to learn and better myself. I would never take this work experience back I feel like its helped me better myself as a person as well as my work ethic

    Cons

    Really everything has its cons but all in all Chipotle has been a rather great experience no matter how stressed it makes me sometimes I always look forward to working with my team again the next day.

    Advice to Management

    Be patient with the new hires. No one starts out brand new knowing everything there is to know about Chipotle. Every day i myself learn something new even though i thought i knew everything a crew member can know.
