Pros

They give you free food. They promote training employees and moving them up the promotion chain.

Cons

Each store will vary widely on how they treat their employees. If you end up at a bad store, you'll never get promoted.

Advice to Management

Remove the managers that don't encourage growth and promotion. Also, the "all-natural" thing is just a fad. Prepare for a time when people don't equate all-natural with healthy and tasty.

    Pros

    Fast Paced, Exciting, People LOVE Chipotle and it's nice to be part of that.

    Cons

    In the Mid West, Upper Management plays favorites. If you support the personal agenda of management you get the promotions and best assignments. If not, you don't matter to them.
    Also be sure not to ask questions, you get labeled a trouble maker and are not a "team player."

    Advice to Management

    Stop making your personal pet projects a requirement to being a "team player."
    Stop having one set of rules for some and another set for the favorites.
    Stop allowing illegal immigrants to work in your stores. Stop looking the other way.
    Steve Ells is a puppet held hostage by share holders; he sold his soul and the heart and vision of Chipotle for cash. Chipotle is a shadow of its former self since going public.

    I worked at Chipotle part-time

    Pros

    Pay for fast food job is decent, fun atmosphere

    Cons

    Unprofessional, and extreme stressed times especially in a busy area. Closing shifts for prep are terrible with no help. Also very corporate for a fast a good industry
