Service Manager (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 17 July 2017
Working at Chipotle has been an absolute pleasure. I have worked there for over 2 years. Started off as a crew member and made my way up to management within a year. Got promoted to a Service manager before my two year mark. Chipotle has the right culture and attracts the right people with good work ethic.
Free employee meal, benefits for management, flexible schedule
Hiring outside hires who do not understand Chipotle's concept and culture.
This is the place for you if you are willing to put in work

This was my first job in the fast food industry and I will never again work with food. Honestly, I did enjoy my time here but there is so much work that goes on behind the scenes and theres no time to slow down. If you are looking for many hours, better than minimum wage pay then this is the place for you. But be ready to work your butt off.
Great Concept, too fast expansion to keep up with original vision
Apprentice General Manager (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 5 July 2017
Always Busy Constant Procedure changes and updates Lots of attention to food safety Many types of audits to ensure efficiency Goal is create empowering environment where we can each become our best selves, but sometimes can feel like groups and cliques form.

Working at Chipotle was very fun because you get to interact with so many people everyday. The food is also healthier than the average fast food joint. The managers always push you to do better and help you work your way up in the chain.
Fun place, but is not something I am going to do for my life
Crew member (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 6 May 2017
It was a physically difficult job, but people there were amazing. It reminds me of a one big family. Managers were always happy to share their experience. Level of sanitary was high, I was surprised that a fast-food place has such strict food safety rules. The hardest part of the job for me was physical part: I cannot carry heavy boxes and stand for 8 hours. I got a good experience of earning money as a student, but not something I want to continue.
Fun workplace, personal growth driven, culture based.
Restaurant Crew (Current Employee) – Vaughan, ON – 18 April 2017
A typical day at work would include greeting your coworkers and feel that positive vibe flow through the restaurant as well as the feeling of enthusiasm of willing to provide the best towards guests. Working hard and constantly keeping the restaurant in perfect shape allowing guests to enjoy their experience. I learned a lot from people skills, professionalism, leadership and ownership skills, as well as culinary skills. The management has improved such that we learn every day to improve output. The hardest part of the job would be trying to be 100% perfect. The most enjoyable part of the job would be interacting and working with coworkers as well as having laid back conversations while maintaining professionalism. The positivity that surrounds the restaurant also gives guests the impression of the enjoyment of serving them. If you're interested in hospitality careers, chipotle is a good way to start off.
Free meal when working, 50% off the clock meal, paid break, amazing coworkers and management
difficult to maintain staff capacity - possibility of inflexible scheduling
Crew Member (Former Employee) – London, Ontario – 6 March 2017
Has to be the the most unprofessional workplace I have ever worked at. Management chooses favourites and gives them all the shifts, while if you are not liked you will get 2 shifts a week and in my case fired after only 2 weeks of employment. Even during my 2 weeks of employment I wasn't given the full time work i was guaranteed. Don't waste your time here
Paid breaks, free food on breaks, above minimum wage pay
Little to no job security, 20 hours or less a week even at full time
Crew Member (Current Employee) – Toronto – 19 February 2017
Chipotle has a very corporate environment, youre constantly told to change procedures to things that take way more time but at the same time pressured into being faster. Everything is about saving labour and saving costs.
Prep cook (Former Employee) – Stockyards – 8 November 2016
I learned the importance of team work the hardest part is nailing those time expectations the people who work there are highly motivated and truly love what they do they are by far the best group of people I have ever worked with and are very well managed
free food during work if you eat it inside the store
Crew Member/Cashier (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 4 October 2016
Terrible management. Horrible hours, very stressful work environment. Always getting criticized for everything you do even though you do it to their "standards". Management is very childish. As id being in high school.
Amazing workplace with the best team of co workers
Prep Cook/Line Cook & Cashier (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 3 November 2015
I loved working at Chipotle. A typical day at work would be getting straight on to the line, or cash. It was a very very fast pace working environment but I was in love with the job, So everything would always flow amazingly. My whole team were a bunch of caring and big hearted group of people and I loved working and seeing them everyday The hardest part about the job was nothing to me really, I caught onto everything on my first day and I loved it all I enjoyed everything
Free food and really good pay
They over worked me, as a part time I would be working full time hours.
Anything Available (Former Employee) – Etobicoke – 10 September 2015
After reading all these negative reviews on this company, this place sounds like a gem to work for, and you people have never worked for Cara Operations(eg.Swiss Chalet) ..."Don't Even Think About Applying to Them?!!"
Kitchen Manager in Training (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 4 September 2015
It all depends on the managers. I had great and bad times there. The work is hard and you have excellent opportunities to grow in the company. Sometimes it loses its balance between your personal life and your job.
