Greet customers and assist them (Former Employee), Salt Lake City, UTNovember 11, 2014
Pros: great team & free meals
Cons: the scheduling
Its was a great place, with great food, and excellent working people, our team had strong points like working great during rush, helping one another out but our weak point was the time and everyone wanting to leave at once. I did love the work place and everyone on my team is was great and they will inform you about their company so well and what they – more... bring to the "fast food" game – less

Working at Chipotle is the best
Cashier/Prep-Server (Former Employee), Houston, TXNovember 9, 2014
Pros: free lunch, paid break
Waking in to Chipotle Mexican Grill as an employee feels the same as being a customer. By just walking in you can feel the vibe and happiness of all employees. This company is not just focus on their business but employees. I learned that a happy face and positive attitude can change a persons day. We has employees reflect and pass our vibe to our customers. – more... I would love seeing all people walking in and smiling at us, feeling like home to walk in. Customer service is amazing. I never though that having a great attitude would make our job and prep be better. It did not reflected only us but everything we did including cleaning, stocking, cooking, everything. – less

Empowering working environment and great people culture.
Service Manager/Customer Service Representative (Current Employee), Austin txNovember 5, 2014
Pros: working with an amazing group of people, great benifits and great oportunities.
Cons: unaccommodating work hours dont leave for much time to spend with my 6 year old daughter.
My days generally consist of running shifts efficiently for a uniquely extraordinary customer experience. People development and consistent training through one-on-ones helped me get to know my team and grow close with each individual creating a great work environment. Working with my team to trouble shoot issues and handle customer concerns is apart – more... of the everyday challenge. Learning management skills through one-on-one training with my supervisors has been an amazing experience seeing the organic growth through the company first hand. The inconsistencies with my hours and scheduled are unaccommodating to my home life, I would have to say that is the only negative with my time with the company. Building up a crew of empowered individuals who work hard for each other and a shared vision has been my favorite part of going to work everyday. – less

Stressful but made great friends
Crew Member (Former Employee), Milford, OHNovember 5, 2014
Pros: decent pay, free lunches on lunch break, half off of your burritos whenever you get one.
Cons: you can't take food home with you, you only get one free thing for lunch, your burritos you buy are only 50% off if its just for you
They grill into you the little goals and etc of Chipotle. About being a great team leader and about containing these certain qualities. A typical day was stressful at the particular Chipotle I worked at because it was a busy one.
Usually there is a lot of drama for sure.
Hardest part of the job is keeping your cool.
Enjoyable part of the job is that – more... at the end of the day you become rather good friends with your fellow employees.
Oh.
&& usually no matter what... the management sucks. – less

Fast Paced Exciting Environment
Crew Member (Current Employee), petaluma, caNovember 4, 2014
Pros: free meals while working, paid breaks, great enviroment
Cons: having to stay longer than your shift sometimes
Fast paced, needing to know how to multi-task, the coworkers provide a welcoming place to come and work. the most difficult thing at work is learning how to do many things at once and getting everything done on time. the most enjoyable part about the job is coming to work knowing you are part of something bigger than yourself and enjoying working with – more... the people around you. And knowing your providing a service for people and even if it just food its one small thing that makes people happy. – less

Fast, fun enviroment providing excellent food to great customers.
Crew Member (Former Employee), Troy, OHNovember 3, 2014
Pros: free lunches, % off meals purchased.
Cons: short breaks, little time to rest.
It's a lot of work but it's worth it. A lot of prepping is involved with opening the store and keeping it supplied for the day. Everthing is made fresh. Nothing is processed. The crew must communicate effectively with each other especially during peak hours. The people are awesome and the enviroment is a positive one. I would recommend this job to anyone – more... who is self-motivated and has a positive attitude. – less

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
