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

    Pros

    Amazing team of people, they really do hire based on the 13 key characteristics. Realistic opportunities for advancement.

    Cons

    It's hard work, it was a rewarding experience but every day you come home sore and smelling like peppers. Unless you like that sort of thing.

    Advice to Management

    Continue doing an amazing job, oh and cut the pm prep guys some slack, especially in high volume locations.

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

    Pros

    Great benefits! Awesome food that tastes great and is truly fresh and animal friendly. Great areas for growth. Training systems are good.

    Cons

    Corporate constantly changes direction. Corporate tries to uniform all restaurants in aspects where they're completely different (like dinner rushes all being from 6pm to 7pm). Pay is mediocre.

    Advice to Management

    Each store is like a child, no two are the same, so don't make each store follow same labor matrices, schedules, rush hours, etc.

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

    Pros

    The work is easy and the people are generally fun. You get free food basically the entire shift and managers are usually very accommodating to schedules.

    Cons

    If you have poor management, it can be very frustrating. There are many food safety policies that managers will be crazy about but will not follow themselves.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize employee potential and do not abuse quality employees.
