Flexible with hours, reasonable & understanding staff/management
Cashier (Current Employee) – Oakville, ON – 11 August 2018
- The crew works together in a strong and efficient way each shift - A normal day of work consists of having to get through multiple rushes as well as greeting all sorts of consumers and dealing with complaints when needed - I learned how to time manage - Staff members receive a free meal when working
Manager (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 10 August 2018
They teach you everything you need to succeed in your position. Learning is every day and the team is regularly good with exceptions. You get free food while being on shift.
LEarn a lot about kitchen, team management, scheduling, ordering supplies, etc. You will have the opportunity to growth a lot.
Long working hours. Inefficient procedures, Too many rules that creates unnecessary stress and paranoia, Be ready to wash tons of dishes every single moment cause they dont have proper dishwashers, The communication is no effective within the team, Canadian and American Regional management bluffs in words and promises but don't really care
Kitchen Staff (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 22 July 2018
They don't follow the procedures themselves. Even though my co-workers were experienced, they did things differently than what the manager had told me. One manager likes thing in one way, the other one in the other way. There's no uniformity. You don't even get time to drink water (someone calls for something if you do try to). Employees that had been working there took shortcuts (not drying the pans/bowls with paper towels and serving/preparing food immediately)
Constant work, rude manager and even worse upper management which will blame you

Working at Chipotle was great, as everyone on the crew got to know one another. We would strive to better one another, and help each other if they required help. Managers were very understanding with everyone's schedule and would try to ensure that everyone got the hours they wanted. The first few days were difficult, obviously to trying to learn and adjust to the work, but it soon becomes a routine. I felt that my experiences with working under pressure, working with a group, and customer service has improved greatly while working here.

Working at Chipotle made me understand the tiresome drudge of working in the food industry. Although the management was very poor, I did get free food every time I worked. The management was so poor, that although I was trained to work on the line, the front of the house decided to make me fry tortilla chips all day, and not allow me to work on the line, despite the constant monotony of the job. When I closed, we often left way later than we were supposed to, and when we opened, since they made me fry chips, they gave me an impossible quota of chips to fry, in hopes of not wanting to listen to me at all.
CREW MEMBER (Former Employee) – London, ON – 6 April 2018
The working atmosphere was great. All my coworkers were friendly and my managers made it easy for me to be flexible with working hours. The work can get a bit stressful when it is busy but other than that, it is manageable and not to tiresome.
Crew member (Former Employee) – Vaughan, ON – 31 March 2018
I always looked forward to going to work because of the welcoming and fun environment. I had a very good relationship with all of my coworkers, we would always be helping each other out. Teamwork was always important. I loved learning new things and being able to interact with different people. It was a job where you did not have time to be tired because it required you to be on your feet and that is something I love.
amazing and fun work place with full of responsibilities

I learned how to work with team all together and how to achieve mutual goals. The management team was quite helpful and motivate you in tough times. The most enjoyable part of job is to cook food and deliver outside while listening to music.
Team Member (Former Employee) – Vaughan, ON – 22 February 2018
A typical day at work consisted of a great deal of multitasking. For example, while the chicken and steak were cooking on the grill, previously cooked meats were in need of being cut into pieces. At the same time, rice and beans were prepared on the side. This is a very fast-paced job, with little to no breaks on the job, especially around busy times such as dinner time. I learned how to perform well under pressure and complete several tasks at once. The management did well in teaching me all of the tricks of the trade. Workplace culture was exceptional, all employees were sociable and good to each other, and cleaning sessions were fun and involved listening to music at the same time. Most enjoyable part of the job was seeing friends come into the shop to eat, so make sure you appear presentable at work.
I enjoyed working there but had a list of items that could've been improved.
Crew Member (Current Employee) – Surrey, BC – 30 January 2018
I've grown with the company the past two and a half years. It has gone through many changes some for the better, some otherwise. I'd say they need to work on managing the time of workers, focus on raises and cross-training. And also, maintain the hours and schedules each week instead of changing it up. But the managers were aring and understanding. They're hard-workers. Chipotle gets very busy at times and we need to focus on delivering the best service.
Crew member ( Part time) (Former Employee) – London, ON – 14 January 2018
It was a great start for me and helped me develop my personal and professional skills. The whole process system was genuine and well integrated. The staff are welcoming and motivational at every stage.
Fun but the attitude on most of the managers were horrible.
Prep Cook (Former Employee) – Dixie, ON – 3 January 2018
In the beginning it was nice until peoole started to get really comfortable. The manager expected for you to.come.jnto work even if you were sick and injured and I don't do well with that. The girls that worked there were very rude
