    I worked at Chipotle

    Pros

    For Pros I can mention only free food

    Cons

    * team - as much as they want to come out friendly no one was friendly to me * training- I was trained by one of the crew members who was always late for morning shift and never explained me why and how things are done. * Break- I never was told how long will the break be. Sometimes it was 30 min sometimes 15 * Characteristics- I started to work 2 days before my grandmother passed away which I explained to manager and yet I was blamed that I am not happy enough. It's not possible to always have characteristics. The only thing that comes out of it is fake people.

    Pros

    Free food You can learn about using the knife in the kitchen

    Cons

    Managers are not trained to lead a team They can bully you They always try to find a guilty person Not challenging at all Managers create a bad work environment HR department is useless and they don't give advice They use a list to write down the names of the crew members that make mistakes They use CCTV from home to spy you at work They don't confide in you Tiny pay rate

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee 

    I worked at Chipotle part-time

    Pros

    free food every shift and half off when off the clock

    Cons

    way too much work for the amount of employees that even show up for different shifts. they had 3-4 people closing and closing required a lot. it was a 5-6 person job if you actually want to leave when you're scheduled to leave for the night. otherwise you're going home at 12:30 am if the service manager on duty doesn't know when to start closing things down.
