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

Pros

1 free employee meal per shift worked, 50% meals when not working, and paid 30 minute breaks for every shift worked. Compensation is decent. Delicious food.

Cons

Difficult to move up... Kitchen Manager is a challenging job. Not impossible to attain, but it takes a lot of training. This is not really a good first job, as it can be quite stressful at times.

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

    Pros

    Free food, fair pay, ability to move up the corporate ladder

    Cons

    Physically demanding, always changing procedures, carpal tunnel syndrome, empty promises, no work life balance, you have to pretend you are super excited to be at work ALL THE TIME or you will be fired even if you are a great worker.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure managers are really ready before promoting them and don't make empty promises.

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

    Pros

    High standards, great quality food, fun atmosphere to work in. The stores I worked in had great team members who really worked together. Free meal every day and paid breaks. The job was probably the hardest job I've ever had, but I loved it.

    Cons

    Inflexible scheduling. My car was stolen and they wouldn't let me call in so they said I quit. They change the schedule almost every day without telling you. I had been there for almost 2 years without ever calling in before.

    Advice to Management

    Have some flexibility for your crew. Life happens.
