Former Employee - General Manager in Minneapolis, MN
Positive Outlook
Approves of CEO

I worked at Chipotle full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Great Food
Great employees...
many opportunities for growth
Many opportunities to have fun throughout the day.
They STRIVE for a great culture.
Company Car
three weeks vacation
low base pay

Cons

...but fall WAY short; extremely gossipy and backstabbing culture is rampant.
It's a boys club--even though there may be a woman or two.
EVERYBODY has to like you...even people who have never MET you!!!
Always on the verge of being fired.
Had to fire those Great employees because they didn't want to be a manager.
High skill job at low pay for crew
They make you feel like a bad manager; even when you knew you weren't.
extremely OCD about everything being perfect. If you are not perfect all the time...gossip begins.
Minneapolis is becoming a notorious bad market to work for in this company.

Advice to Management

Stop firing people to keep your job. It's really transparent, don't you think?
stop actively throwing people under the bus.
Don't throw stones in Glass houses.
Realize high volume restaurants are NOT the same as low volume.
Be a leader; not a tattle tail...it makes you look incompetent and unprofessional.
