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

Crew Member / Prep (Former Employee), Richmond , VaDecember 17, 2014
Pros: free lunches and paid breaks
Cons: no communication with managers
Working at Chipotle , I learned a lot about agriculture. I learned about the backgrounds of owning a company and building it from top to bottom. The Co-workers were great , but the work environment was a little off. The hardest part of the job , was explaining portion sizes to customers. Many customers hated the fact that we really coludnt give them – more... extra food because of inventory. The other hard part was as employees we really weren't allowed to express our feelings about the company , in a constructive way . I actually had the most fun doing prep work before the store opened. I got to know everyone and I also gained a great appreciation for food . – less

Kitchen Manager in Training (Current Employee), west palm beach, flDecember 16, 2014
A typical work day at chipotle is fun, entertaining and very fast paced. I come in the morning around 7 a.m to help put the truck away, then I start my prep tasks to prepare the store to open.

Cashier/ Food Preparation (Former Employee), Raynham, MADecember 16, 2014
Pros: free lunch, lots of fun
Cons: very busy and high demands with a fast pace
a typical day at work is one where I make the food and then serve it to customers. I have learned many new fun ways to cook and how to handle all different kinds of situations. Management was very kind and my co workers were all fun. The hardest part of the job is when there were so many customers and the demand for food was so high. the best part of – more... the job was when we all had fun and acted like a family. – less

Permanent job with day time and week hours
Server (Current Employee), Richmond, VADecember 15, 2014
Pros: paid break, free employee meal, one 50% off meal every time you purchase
Cons: deadline to sign up for medical and dental ensurance, hourly pay is not so appropiate for the amount of work you do
A regular day at Chipotle would be hectic and busy. I had to deal with a lot of costumers with anger issues which was not a problem for me. Multitasking is a skill you must have to be successful. The management is great. They make sure that I know how valuable I was to the company. The hardest part was the cleaning at night. Everything had to be done – more... on time and it was a lot to do in very short amount of time. However the time you get to spend with the costumers and get to interact with them is very rewarding. – less

Best Job
Take Out Specialist (Former Employee), Jacksonville, FLDecember 14, 2014
Pros: 30 minute breaks with free meal, fast advancement, great food, great team
Cons: that i was let go
I absolutely loved this job. Great work environment, awesome employees and management team was great. You would clock in and automatically feel good about what you were doing and about the food you were preparing. We took great pride in our cleanliness and our food preparation. We were all about customer service, and our fast paced service. Management – more... had their good days and bad days but they were always willing to help you learn how to do your job more efficiently. My co-workers always put a smile on my face even when i wasn't working. The hardest part was keeping up with the veterans on the production line. The most enjoyable part was being able to provide great customer service and produce such great food – less

Cashier/Customer Service (Former Employee), Mineola, NYDecember 13, 2014
Pros: free lunch
Cons: short breaks
Working at Chipotle in the beginning was fun then we got new management and I just feel that the whole culture of the store changed in a negative way.I used to be a crew member I was an opener I worked in chipolte mineola for 2 years I would get there at at 8am and the kitchen manager would be there from 7 and they would tell us what task we had to – more... for the day, cooking chips cutting lettuces cutting and scooping boxes of guacamole everything we did was by hand. I loved my co-workers some of us were like a family that's what I enjoyed the most the free food was a plus – less

Fun work enviornment
Cashier (Former Employee), Chino Hills, CADecember 12, 2014
Pros: free meals and seeing your friends every day
Cons: high pressure
Everyone just thought it was rolling burritos but everything had to be prepared by scratch every day. If you didn't do it in time there weren't consequences but it was looked down upon.. If you couldn't do it in time after awhile they just moved on to someone who could. I learned the faster the better and your job must be done right in that short amount – more... of time. The most enjoyable part of my job was seeing my coworkers. It was like a little family. Sure there were little cliques but mostly everyone got along. – less

cashier/crew/trainer (Former Employee), Jefferson City, MODecember 11, 2014
Pros: food!
Cons: empty promises
A typical day started off by showing up to work at 830 in the morning and preparing the needed amounts and ingredients needed for the day. What I learned form this job was that communication is a must. I was working two jobs at the time of being here, Chipotle during the day and Spectators at night, and I had to make sure that they had the days that – more... I was off from the bar and when I wasn't. Management was the best that I worked at, they were consistent for the most part but I got promised to move up in the business and it fell through because one manager did not care for me. The hardest part of this job was dealing with the empty promises and keep doing everything I was supposed to do to advance. The most enjoyable part of this job was learning more kitchen skills because I love too cook and eat! – less

Crew Member (Former Employee), Tallahassee, FLDecember 11, 2014
I was not employed with Chipotle very long but I can say that the management was considerate of the fact that I have children and a busy class schedule. Pay is higher than minimum wage but was not enough for my situation.

Crew Member (Former Employee), Grain Valley, MODecember 10, 2014
Pros: free lunches and always able to learn knew things
Cons: short breaks, tough management
Chipotle was a constantly moving ship. It was important to be constantly on the move and doing something. Being idle was not an option. I learned many things from this job including, the importance of taking the initiative, constant communication with the leaders and being open to learning knew tasks. The most enjoyable part of the job was being able – more... to assist the customers. The hardest part of the job was when the restaurant became extremely busy. – less

Crew Member/Cook (Former Employee), Chambersburg, PADecember 9, 2014
I worked for Chipotle for 4 months and I loved every minute of it. Unfortunately, My life schedule didnt work so well with the job. I didnt like the fact that there were so many managers. To me, It comes off as hectic, Because one manager will tell you one thing, And another will tell you something completely different. It was often stressful. But overall, – more...

Cashier/Prep (Former Employee), Tulsa, OKDecember 8, 2014
Everyone is a big family, it was crazy busy all the time but the people I worked with made it tolerable, great company to work for. i think the coolest thing there is when getting hired, you get interviewed by the crew, not the mangers. its the crew that chooses to work with you.

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
