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

    Pros

    Great environment and pay, fun coworkers, easy interview.

    Cons

    Scheduled for hours I had prearranged to not work, like closing on weeknights as a high school student. Wasn't really trained, just kind of tossed in on my first shift (Halloween which is one of the busiest nights of the year) and then thrown into cashier next shift without any idea on how to do cash.

    Advice to Management

    Properly train new team members please and help them get acquainted better with other coworkers. I didn't feel like I was good friends with my coworkers until my last few shifts.

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

    Pros

    Great group of people who work together to meet goals! Comradery grows as we continue to work cooperatively together.

    Cons

    Would be nice to have a schedule that's more readily available to the workers. I only work the weekends, so I don't get to see any schedule changes that are made, if any, unless I go into the store and check out the printed paper.

    Advice to Management

    Management is great! They're very helpful and are always elevating coworkers and pushing to meet high standards.

    Overworked, underpaid. They set unrealistic goals and cut your hours if it was not met. Very petty work environment. I wouldn't recommend it to any. Go be waitress.
