    I worked at Chipotle part-time

    Pros

    coworkers
    hours
    tasks are honestly simple as heck
    its a fun enviorment

    Cons

    namely favoritism, you can work as hard as you want, but if the scheduling manager has a favorite, they'll give them the good hours

    I worked at Chipotle part-time

    Pros

    great people, hard workers, free food, get to listen to literally every rap album ever made, teaches you how to work hard. i feel like i actually became a better person after working here

    Cons

    upper management can get out of touch with crew, managers can get micro managey, but if you have good management it is a great job

    Advice to Management

    get back in touch with the crew.

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

    Pros

    Free food!
    Team-oriented work environment - co-workers genuinely cared for one another.
    Decent work-floor banter - would have been even more without the humorless and sententious area manager!!
    Store managers were consistently good people with a sense of humor and above average emotional intelligence.

    Cons

    Regional Manager disliked me arbitrarily. I suspect that her lack of appreciation for banter conflicted with my profound commitment to it.

    Advice to Management

    Relegate area manager to cashier/line position for one day every 6 months so that she may gain crucial exposure to the experience of her employees.
    To be fair, the store for which I worked so temporarily has since excelled to restaurateur status (this either reflects well on management or demonstrates declining standards at the company) . While correlation should not be taken for causation, (and the nosedive in overall banter which undoubtedly took place after I left surely detracted from the store's working environment) I suspect that my departure helped restore the militaristic sense of duty and cult-like reverence for authority upon which Chipotle depends.
    Miss the daily burrito bowls - what an excellent morale booster.

    I have been working at Chipotle part-time

    Pros

    The work is not that hard as a Crew member. Get in there and roll burritos, pretty simple. I love the tuition reimbursement, as a student, it's probably the best benefit.

    Cons

    The only downside is the rude customer every now and then.

    I worked at Chipotle (More than a year)

    Pros

    It was easy to start working up the ladder of positions, great college job, flexible, eligible for tuition reimbursement

    Cons

    most of your shifts will be on the weekends, closing always took longer than it should have

    Advice to Management

    Figure out a way to make the closing process more efficient

    Pros

    You're probably has a lot of opportunities if you willing to work hard in our Dependable set goals

    Cons

    If you get into the wrong location and end up with a clicky store is hard for advancement cuz it's not what you do or how hard you work it's who you know

    Advice to Management

    Monitor your GM's to make sure they're being fair
