    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.

    I worked at Chipotle full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great ambitious co-workers and fun environment Management was very helpful and understanding. Excellent implementation of high standards and safety. Always opportunity for promotion if you work hard. Great fast pace and a great way to learn a lot of essential knife, food safety, prep and cooking skills that can really help in future job searches and life in general.

    Cons

    Corporate is unreasonable. Too much work in too little time such as highly unbalanced workload in prep (3 or 4 hrs. worth of prep to complete in 2 hrs. per person). Very tough on management at all levels. Prep was rarely ever complete by 10:30 and if morning prep wasn't complete, managers couldn't go on break .Scheduling was a mess, employees scheduled to come in an hour before being allowed to clock in.
