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

    Pros

    I like that in order for someone to get hired the entire crew has to meet them and agree to hire them.
    The pay is pretty good compared to my old job.
    You awls have friends at work and that you can hang out with outside of work.

    Cons

    Sometimes you do not get out on time due to sometimes being short people in the morning for prep or we just get so busy that there is no one to do prep because everyone is on the line or on grill.

    Advice to Management

    Sometimes the way management talks to people makes it seem like they are talking down to you/other people and its not empowering so possible when employees sat something about that they could listen better?
    When people need to change their availability because of school or something else that comes up its not always easy to get it switched.

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

    Pros

    Free food! Good pay, and good benifits.

    Cons

    Almost everything. In my time (4 months) of working there I had 5 different managers, the rudest customers, all of my employees would get high and be rude. If you have anxiety please don't work here.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to train better

    Pros

    There are paid breaks and the staff really treats you like a family.

    Cons

    Working at Chipotle and earning minimum wage is difficult because there is a lot of work to be done, but, costumer satisfaction makes it so fulfilling.

    Advice to Management

    Management doesn't necessarily slack, but can be all over the place. Consistency is something that needs to be worked on.

    Pros

    Everyone is so friendly and encouraging and really want the best for you. Meeting new coworkers and cool customers is great.

    At first, it's hard work. It's demanding and of course there's frustrating customers.

    Pros

    If you hard worker and have 13 caraterristict this place the perfect place to created your further dream.

    Cons

    I am glad being part of Chipotle family, now I been working for one year, I don't believe it ! Time go so fast, because I have so much fun, I enjoy every bit of what I did at work, and always make me work a lot harder if I seen smile in my customer face and when I heard great compliment about how great our food or how nice we greet them, and I always encourage my friend to keep doing awesome jobs everyday to created smile on my costumer.

    Advice to Management

    Bit advice from me, keep build great people of course when you select of KM or SM choose the quality people and hard worker not base who is nice and know talk only. Because one of the day that person will hold rensponsible to created new leader.

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

    Pros

    The food is great, you get a free meal every day you work (as opposed to lots of chains which just give you a discount on a meal), and the work is fast paced but not unreasonably demanding.

    Cons

    The corporate culture was not something I liked at all

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

    Pros

    This is a great first job to have. It teaches how to work with people, and teamwork. Plus the pay is pretty good. I worked there for only four months, I was in cosmetology school at the time. I absolutely loved the job, time goes by super fast and your always on your feet. Plus you get a free meal for every shift (you can get double meat and extra guacamole and everything) and 50% every other time you come in. It's pretty great.

    Cons

    The people who worked at my particular location were great, except some had the tendency to pick on me. Before I left th job became extremely unstable, they started scheduling me on days I couldn't work; and working the dining room was nearly impossible; mainly because of him picky they became with the trays. I felt extremely overwhelmed.

    Advice to Management

    I do love how thy encourage you to grow in this company. They hire within for managers and the opportunities are amazing. I loved my managers at my location.
