Pros: free lunch, tips, paid breaks, sense of accomplishment
Cons: don't always get a break, long shifts, hard work, low wage, rocky management, favoritism
Chipotle Culture is probably its best and worst characteristic. They love young people, so much so that they will promote them long before someone with other or more job experience, and they do take care of you.
Many bonuses of the company include Free food, Paid breaks, Tips, and an obsessive mentality thats sure to draw you into to their high energy, often exhausting style of work. All the food is hand prepared starting as early as 6 AM and comes with its unique set of standards that include cut sizes and time expectations. In other words you need to be fast and precise if you want to have any hopes of surviving past Crew Member.
Some downfalls are that, in a high volume store you can be at work as late as one in the morning, and be expected to come in the next day to open. Shifts can also be up to 16 hours long if you work a double, which you will be asked to do more often than not.
overall this is a great job for a young person (precollege) who loves a lot of work and a lot of Excitement and is just trying to save up some money. (the free food helps a lot) However if you are looking for a nice laid back sort of environment, or a part time job while in school. I would seek elsewhere. This is a career path more than a part time job.
