    I worked at Chipotle full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - you get always paid the right amount, even when you work overtime - they respect break time and encourage you to take it - free meals on shift

    Cons

    - very corporate culture - too much work for little money - too many "motivational" talks - a bit patronising

    I worked at Chipotle part-time

    Pros

    Overall not a bad first job for high school age folks. It's nice to get a free meal while working, but you can't take it home!

    Cons

    Management was not good and the team was not communicative

    I worked at Chipotle part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    If your a fan of Chipotle, working at one of their locations you'll get a free meal every shift you work. One of those free meals could last me for days, because there isn't a limit for how much meat, beans, and etc. you can put in your order.

    Cons

    Everyone that starts working at Chipotle has to begin working at the front interacting customers that will constantly yell and degrade you for not scooping enough meat or something. Because of this and the lack of support from management, it willl take an emotionally take a toll on you.
