Approves of CEO

I worked at Chipotle full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Fun atmosphere, high standards, good money, free meals, good benefits, teaches you a lot about management and Speed of service

Cons

Long hours, very high expectations, constant pressure to move up (get promoted)

Upper management makes their money by promoting people through their "pipeline". Whether those people are ready for the promotion or not, isnt their concern. if you are,, then good for you, if you screw up, then they blame you for not knowing how to do you job.

Advice to Management

I was used as a scapegoat by my area manager, to avoid loosing his job, he blamed me but lied about it to me face. Granted, this is only ONE area manager, but the lesson is, be careful who you put your faith in.

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

    Pros

    -Free food whenever you work
    -Reasonable hours

    Cons

    -Rude customers (not exactly Chipotle's fault)
    -Very fast paced with no downtime
    -Pressure to be fast AND efficient which can cause a lot of anxiety especially when learning

    All in all, I would not recommend working here to anybody who doesn't like a challenge. If you like a laid-back atmosphere, apply elsewhere.
