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

Will Not Ever Return
Crew Member (Former Employee), TXSeptember 25, 2014
Pros: employees eat free while working
Cons: if you stand your ground, management drills it from under you
Chipotle can be a fun and productive environment to work in, but will change at the drop of a dime. When management encourages all crew members to be empowered and help all others to be better, that's teamwork. It's called a daycare center, when you cannot accept help or criticism and have to run and go cry to management because someone is being empowered – more... and trying to help better yourself. You keep your job for crying and they lose their job because you felt they were too aggressive. Another thing, they also fire employees who do not wish or want to move up in the company. The employee is phenomenal, everyone has their good and bad days, but they chose to terminate the employee because they did not want to move up to management. They were happy and content with being a crew member. – less

abusive management and unfair
Crew Member (Former Employee), Beaverton OregonSeptember 23, 2014
Pros: free meals
Cons: $0.10 raises every 6 months
i invested two years of my life into Chipotle. I held onto the vision they want you to picture to drive you every day and night, success. I did everything i was asked to do and always looked for ways to improve myself and those around me. I saw new hires get promoted soon after they got the job. Not to speak bad about them but they were always less – more... qualified than i was in all aspects not just the obvious. I was stuck in my crew uniform. I did get the opportunity to train for managment but i never got the promotion. I gave my GM my two weeks notice and let her know that i don't want to leave but if I'm not promoted soon i would have to look else where for another opportunity. Before i left her office she told me "its hard to find someone to replace you. Ive been trying, but right now if i promote you we would have a hard time conducting business as usual and training people to run my stations would not be good for labor

Productive and friendly enviorment
Cashier (Former Employee), Newark, NJSeptember 22, 2014
Pros: free lunch
Cons: 15 minute breaks
A typical day at work would consist of me just simply taking care of customers , preparing their food . Sometimes washing dishes and sometimes being the cashier. Working there I learned that work can also be fun . The management was great . They made you feel like they were your equal . The co-workers were also nice and always had a positive energy. – more... The hardest part of the job was during peek hour and there was a lunch rush and we were missing workers . The most enjoyable part was just seeing customers leave with a smile on their face and me knowing I had something to do with that. – less

not a good workplace for a young student staright out of high school
Cashier (Current Employee), Washington, DCSeptember 19, 2014
Pros: free meals, good pay
Cons: ridiculous hours, bad management
a typical day at work includes nothing but preparing food staying on your feet and serving the customers from what ever time you came to the exceeded time to leave. from this job i have learned to only manage my money become a hard worker and fast learner i am quick with my hands and feet and can get any task done in a certain amount of time. the management – more... is not to good once i was robbed f 50 dollars by one of my employees and the management of where i work now did absolutely nothing about this issue. my co workers are pretty okay well the ones that only speak English, the ones that are of a different language like to talk a lot of trash and snitch a lot and say things no one can really understand, the hardest part of my job is trying to manage the ridiculous hours that i do receive i got to school 3 days out of the week for 3 hours and i barely get a day off or time to get home on time to get any homework done.the most enjoyable part about my job is the pay day and only working with certain employees i can really connect with. – less

Very stressful
Crew Member (Former Employee), Mesa, AZSeptember 18, 2014
I sat the grill for 5-8 hours a day for up to 40 hours a week. I learned to grill meats, customer service, prep food for the day, start the grills, fryers, etc. Hardest part of the job was the heat 24/7 against your face. the most enjoyable part of the job was the culture and people.

Being a spy
Support sales (Current Employee), Pembroke Pines, FLSeptember 18, 2014
Pros: pay was great, good schedule.
Cons: temproary job
You come in pretending to be your managers best associate when in reality your secretly getting him fired. I' ve learned that managers will never know who exactly may be watching what they do. Management was good they communicated with me well. Co workers were good, helped me learn all aspects of managers job and what a manager does on a daily basis. – more... Hardest part of job was keeping track of managers suspicious actions and the most enjoyable part was being a spy in the process. – less

Chipotle creates a structured and fun environment where employees are empowered to be the best they can be everyday.

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
