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

Pros

There is plenty of room to move up in the company so you just have to work really hard and you will get there.

Cons

It's so busy and they run on a bare minimum staff, its hard to schedule people and to train others. They never taught me how to manage or anything like that no classes nothing. I just wing it.

Advice to Management

Run on a little higher labor percentage and maybe do some sort of management training class.

  1. "Frustrating, stressfull, and unrewarding. That's the Chipotle experience!"

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

    Pros

    Almost all of your co-workers will be easy and fun to work with, you can't beat learning how to make great tasting food (even if it isn't authentic) and of course, how could you not love being able to eat what you make.

    Cons

    Micromanagement is never easy to deal with. Restaurant environments are always fast-paced and and often frantic but it doesn't make it any easier when you work so hard you're sweating profusely all while being what some may consider "harrassed" by low level cronies.

    Advice to Management

    Order is everything, without it nothing gets accomplished. Morale is equally important. Though money is definitely a motivating factor in maintaining employment, comfort and and confidence in your company's agendas are just as major.


  2. "Very hands-on and interactive interview process."

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

    Pros

    Fast paced, upward mobility, potential for more than 40 hours per week. Some locations are seeking or have already achieved "restauraneur" status, making their employees more desirable and can command more pay.

    Cons

    Extremely high standards and expectations, any work above prep and line work is worth more than the $8/hr base pay most employees start at. Can be very intense during peak hours.
