A nice and fun place to work
Line cook (Former Employee), 123 Front StreetApril 10, 2014
Pros: lunch break
There are two shift's 7.00a.m to 5p.m. and 5p.m to 11.30p.m I was
in-charge of the prep area so I used to prep the for the daily consumption of food for the day. According to the sheet set by the manager. During peak hours I worked at the grill and served food according to Chipotle's standards. The management is friendly and the managers are always – more... willing to help you when you need them. The co-workers are friendly and nice to work with. The hardest part of the job I don't remember. The enjoyable part of the job was everyday coming to work – less

A learning experience
Crew Member (Former Employee), Lancaster, OHSeptember 13, 2014
A typical day at Chiptole was very hectic. The hours were long and sometimes quite draining. However as always, it was a learning experience and made me grateful for everything I have. The most difficult part of the job was working with some inappropriate managers. The most enjoyable part about working there was the free meals employees get while on – more... the clock. – less

Great benefits but poor work environment
Grill Cook (Former Employee), Fredericksburg, VASeptember 13, 2014
Pros: free lunches
Cons: short or long shifts, no inbetweens.
Day started with getting the food ready for the customers, re-cooking a lot of the food and making the side dishes. I learned how to manage multiple things at once, and was reasonably good at it. Management was ok, they weren't afraid of doing other peoples jobs as needed, however they were limited by corporate by being forced to do steps that hindered – more... work. The hardest part of the job was keeping up using the companies standards. – less

Prep/Line Cook (Former Employee), Lakewood, CASeptember 10, 2014
Pros: excellent place to learn communication skills
Cons: very busy at times mostly lunch and dinner.
Greeting lots of customers and giving them that home feeling that your welcome to come and eat. a typical work day is very busy/slow depending on the hours of the day which include lunch which is the heaviest. i learned everything from cleaning tables to greeting customers to working with serving food on the line taking orders to moving up to preparing – more... and cooking the food. Management is great they do everything they can to train an help you move up. Co-Workers are great very helpful. the hardest part of the job well for me was closing really couldn't get the handle of being done on time. The most enjoyable part of the job was the co-workers always willing to help and make u feel comfortable. – less

Getting the day ready at Chipotle
Crew Member, Cashier, Food Prep (Former Employee), Colma, CASeptember 9, 2014
Pros: free lunches, lovable coworkers
Cons: no breaks
I would come into work clock in, give other crew members their breaks, think of the game plan for the day and mostly do the prep work that needed to be done for the rest of the night since I worked closing shifts. I have learned how to be a top performer which if giving it your best to the company and the store not just helping yourself but others around – more... you. I also learned how to be empowered to do better in the store and for myself in the workplace. I also learned to have high standards in the things I did, like picking the best produce for the prep and always being concerned if anything was wrong with a product because we only serve the best food for the people. The hardest part of the job is being overwhelmed with many customers at one time, and being understaffed. Most enjoyable part of the job is working with wonderful people and creating a family in the workplace. – less

Good work environment with a great vision, unfortunatly sometimes the vision doesn't come to reality.
Team Member (Former Employee), Lynnwood, WASeptember 9, 2014
Pros: free employee lunches (during your shift) and half-off when you are off your shift. however, this only applies to the location you work at.
When I first started working there, I loved it. Great people, great vision and lots of opportunities to learn and advance in the company. However, do to various circumstances I switched locations and was unable to move forward from my position or get the hours I needed.
A typical day for me included working on the line for about half an hour and then – more... bagging chips/cleaning the dining room for the rest of the time. This was not what I wanted to do at Chipotle. I love cooking and kept wanting to get more time on the line and possibly help with the prep work and/or grilling. However, this never happened which is why I quit after working for three months. The most enjoyable part of the job for me was seeing the customers happily eating the food. The hardest part of the job for me was running around bagging chips and cleaning the dining room during the rush, it really should be a two person job. I learned a lot about the food served there, it is as fresh as possible and all the meat is from humanly-raised animals. That is something I, to this day, still love about Chipotle. Also it is very fast service but it is still a friendly environment. My co-workers were nice and the only real compliant I have about the management is again the fact that I wasn't able to get the hours I needed or advance. – less

Busy
Crew Member (Former Employee), Flower Mound, TXSeptember 9, 2014
Chipotle was a busy place to work for. I was able to use my prior restaurant experience. A typical day would consist of opening and closing the restaurant, being a team player, prepping the restaurant, interaction with the customers and other employees, up holding company values, and keeping the restaurant clean. My co-workers were all different ages. – more... We got to know each other and learn to use each other at work when needed help or just to be a team player. Hardest part of the job when there wouldn't be enough employees when it was super busy, but we were able to use what we had to exceed our goals. What I enjoyed about working here was learning some Spanish and getting to know everyone! – less

Good Job culture with room to grow
Manager (Current Employee), New York, NYSeptember 9, 2014
I opened the restaurant made deployment chart for employees ad prepared food for afternoon rush. learned how to organize and lead people. I managed the store inventory and food order as well as cash handling and ordering money from Dunbar. Most of my co workers enjoyed the working environment. The hardest part of job was to find a balance between managerial – more... work and actual food preparation. The most enjoyable part of the job was taking care of the customers and making sure the food was up to standards. – less

Crew Member (Current Employee), Stockton, CASeptember 7, 2014
Pros: free lunch on work days, 50% of meals on days off, healtcare
Cons: management, hours, salary
The days are busy because you are working at a non-stop paced. I've learned great customer service, great cooking, and safety skills. The management is okay. They really are all over the place and not on the same page which reflects on the crew members. The hardest part about the job is that the crew members are over worked and under paid. But the best – more... part about my job is my co- workers, they are all wonderful people and keep me look forward for my next shift. – less

About Chipotle Mexican Grill

When Chipotle first opened, the idea was simple: show that food served fast didn't have to be a "fast-food" experience. – Read more
