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

Pros

-- The atmosphere is pleasant to be in, it is not a typical fast food style establishment.

-- Every employee gets a Development Journal. Containing;
    - Checklist's for each stage of the employee's progression.
    - Weekly entry section to be filled out during 1 on 1 talks with their Manager.
    - Note's section for writing down technical instructions (computer tasks, inventory tips, ect.)

-- Paid breaks, every lunch break includes free meal.

-- Quick promotions*

Cons

** Horrible turnover rate - 80%+ of employee's are employed less than 6 months. **

- Poor training. Assume that you will be training yourself on specific details.
- After first few weeks, expect inconsistant hours.
- Very positive interactions between new hires and managment for first week or so. It is just a front.
- Tolerates immaturity, gossip, and disparagement.

Advice to Management

Recognize Top preformers and acknoledge them for their work.
Accept that low performers (no matter how "cool") need to be let go.
Enforce standards at all times, not just before inspections and corprate visits.

    I have been working at Chipotle part-time

    Pros

    Free Food when working shifts

    Cons

    Schedule and hours would vary unexpectedly week to week
    Very repetitive environment

    Advice to Management

    Empower employees
    Engage with the crew members regularly instead of spending time watching the cameras and what crew members are not doing instead of being on the floor.


  2. "Everyone should have a job in the food industry at some point in their lives"

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

    Pros

    When I first started working there the management was great. They were really understanding about schedules, my coworkers were really friendly and helpful training, and everyone worked together really well.

    Cons

    After working for about 6 months, the management changed, some of the new hirees were not good workers and because of that, I was required to work more hours and have to do work that my coworkers weren't doing in addition to my own.
