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

Great if you love fast paced eviroments
Cashier (Current Employee), Baltimore, MDJuly 28, 2014
A typical work day at Chipotle can range from a breeze to very stressful. The key to a very stressful work day Chipotle is when the online orders come in. Between serving the customer and making sure you have every order done will have you wanting to quit that night. Working here i have learned so much about the business and the 13 characteristics you – more... need in order to be employed at Chipotle. They also make sure that the vision is stored inside your brain. The coworkers are usually like one big family even the mangers. Also there is no separation between the Spanish and English people they get along very well. Overall working for Chipotle can be the best for you or the worse it all depends on how you handle a fast paced job. – less

Best job I ever had! Great family-like environment.
Crew Member (Former Employee), DeKalb, ILJuly 28, 2014
This job really pushes you to go above and beyond. They value high standards and want their employees to feel like they all have a valuable spot on the team. The work is very demanding, but that was fine for me because I felt that I was apart of an honest company that really wanted their customers to feel they were getting the best possible service – more... and food. The hardest part of the job is probably remembering all the recipes, but if you enjoy cooking then it isn't so difficult. I got along with all my co-workers and management so well, I honestly didn't feel as if I was going to work half the time. One of the best jobs I've ever had if not THE best! – less

Line Cook/Prep Cook (Current Employee), Glen Allen, VAJuly 23, 2014
Chipotle is a very busy and fun enviornment. A typical day at work is non stop hard work and learning something new everyday. The management and co workers are good. The hardest part of the job is really keeping up with our busy rush of customers. The most enjoyable part of working at chipotle is learning new things and having a fun time with my crew – more... members. – less

Longer hours, Overworked
Food Prep and more (Former Employee), Alexandria, VAJuly 17, 2014
Pros: free lunch, paid break
Cons: dishonest management, workload.
Chipotle hires one person to handle dishes, lobby, restrooms, trash and self-service station. To top it off the manager (who only stood there and watched people work) would constantly go off on you for spending more than five minutes in the dish room without checking the lobby. I turned out to be allergic to the dish detergent, and the manger refused – more... to provide me with gloves. The store closed at 10, and we were supposed to leave at 11:30, but continued working until one, which wasn't too much of an issue at first, until one day the assistant manager made us clock out and continue working. Soon after Resigning, I was called back by the main manager and asked to return. I refuse to work in such a place again. – less

Fast and busy restaurant
Crew Member (Former Employee), Chicago, ILJuly 15, 2014
Pros: employment lunches
Cons: no breaks, short hours
A typical day at work was getting ready to make customers feel welcomed at the restaurant and provide them with food they enjoyed. My co-workers were mostly not nice and the hardest part of the job was having the rest of the crew members tell me to more than 3 things at once only because i was a new hire and i thought it was unfair.

working for the a great team makes all the difference
Crew Member (Former Employee), Lee's Summit, MOJuly 15, 2014
Not all Chipotes Restaurants have a great team that you enjoy to work with but my experience in the one I was at was a good one. Having a great leader makes a big difference and I was lucky enough to have a one of a kind General Manager. There for our team was one of a kind had a good experience working for Anzelmo.

Met a lot of awesome people here
Team Member (Lead) (Former Employee), Mission ValleyJuly 14, 2014
Pros: free employee meal, my coworkers were awesome, flexible schedule
Cons: hourly sucks
If you're hardworker and looking for somewhere to get on your feet, this is the place for you. I was an Assistant Manager for many years and was looking for a company that was loyal as I was. They were super flexible (don't abuse it though) with scheduling while I was going to vocational school and even after getting a job in my field of study, I continued – more... to work here because of my awesome coworkers. There was a high turnover because they only hire the best but if you are top performer with a good attitude you will have no problem staying here. A typical day would consist of cashier functions, prep, working the line, serving and rolling fat burritos ( I was an expert :) ) I loved my job I just hated the pay. However, you gotta start somewhere and this is a place I wish I would've started. Music is always bumping, good vibes and a lot of the managers there now are people I trained. It's not like any other place you will ever work, nothing but great experiences working for many years with Chipotle. – less

Friendly coworkers
Crew Worker/ Cashier (Former Employee), Sante Fe Springs/CaliforniaJuly 14, 2014
Pros: stacked burritos
Cons: 10 min breaks
I would clock in, figure out what my position for that day, & hop right to it. If I was on tortilla I would greet all the customers & handle their food orders. If I was cashier I would welcome all guests, maintain lobby, & handle all cash transactions. Hardest part about my job was the lack of communication between coworkers & the most enjoyable part – more... was knowing you got the job done right. – less

Fast paced work environment with friendly coworkers and great managers.
Crew Member (Current Employee), Webster TX 77058July 14, 2014
Pros: free meals.
Cons: breaks at the beginning of the shift.
My typical day at work begins with checking all that I have on the line and restocking what needs to be refilled based on demand from customers. Then I must serve customers with a friendly up-beat attitude and at a timely matter. Finally at the end of the shift I must clean and restock everything for next shift of people to come in a timely matter.
I – more... learned how to work efficiently and quickly while having a positive attitude.
The management helps you learn and shows you how to do the job correctly and helps you out if the team is behind. They also are top performers and do what needs to be done and they set a good example to follow/
My coworkers are friendly and I can relate to them, and we all work well together and have great communication.
The hardest part of the job is working around some negative people.
The most enjoyable part of the job making people happy with the product you serve them. – less

Fun place to work at if you're a student going into college
Customer service (Former Employee), Bakersfield, CAJuly 11, 2014
Pros: free food on the clock, 50% discount off the clock
Cons: never get your break during your shift, managers break you before you clock out
There really isn't a typical when you work at Chipotle. Come in not knowing what you may do that day as you're constantly doing something different or being cross-trained. Most times the co-workers are awesome but management is not really to great.

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
