I have been working at Chipotle full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

This company is very people oriented. If you want to advance quickly it can happen

Cons

This company promotes a very laid back atmosphere but doesn't take into account that when you promote young people to leaders you are not setting them up success when dealing with such a laid back young environment. Upper management doesn't understand how to not micro manage everything.

Advice to Management

Trust the people you put in certain positions. We are all adults, and if you don't trust us, then were not meant for that position. It cripples confidence and progression.

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

    Pros

    Pays more than most fastfood jobs
    free meal every shift
    very possible to move up in company (very laid-out, bottom-up path)
    huge learning experience
    good company to have on your resume
    high quality standards, they care about what they're serving

    Cons

    you will work hard, from beginning to end of shits
    very stressful during customer rushes
    very high pressure from not only management to perform impossibly well
    extremely corporate chain that drills their vision into your head, can be extremely annoying
    they quiz you all the time on policies and store vision and other corporate crap (irritating)

    Advice to Management

    management is fine really, pressure from them comes from pressure from corporate. Corporate, chill out, chipotle customers care less than you think they do. in fact, some of the policies that are meant to add quality, customers complain they are wasteful and pointless. no big deal tough.
