Pretty easy can be fast-paced very flexible.

Pretty easy can be fast-paced very flexible. The line can build up but if you just plan for the rushes well you'll be fine. Once and a while you can fall behind but its fine just ask for help and they will.

Poor Management, Too Much Work, Not Enough Pay.

The management are young and very unorganized. You get over worked and don't get paid enough. A couple of the managers were really kool, but than there were some that were just awful to work with. A good job for a high school kid.


Free meal per shift


rude people, bad pay, overworked

fun place to work

great place for college students. pay is descent. The work-life balance at [Company Name] is another aspect that sets it apart. The company understands the importance of maintaining a healthy equilibrium between professional and personal life. This balance greatly contributes to a more focused and motivated workforce.I am also impressed by commitment to innovation. The company consistently strives to stay ahead of industry trends, providing employees with the chance to work on cutting-edge projects. This forward-thinking approach not only keeps the work interesting but also positions the company as a leader in the field.

Okay place to work

It was okay, coworkers were fun ti work with but was stressful whenever you get a line out the door. The store had barely opened so it was in shambles at first not sure how it is now.

Good place to work

Pay for your school and great opportunities. There is lots of room for advancement or to become a manager. The management works with your school schedule and is a great first job.

bad management overall

Im a closer and it’s literally the worst job there and I basically got trapped into the position. Its pretty fast paced and you’re moving around alot most of the time. The best part of the job is the free food and that’s it. The management is terrible you have managers who got the role and can’t even role a burrito, managers who are lazy, and managers who just don’t care. Honestly my coworkers are what really kept me there for so long. It’s a good first job for minors but don’t get stuck there please. Avoid becoming a closer if possible it’s the worst postition to be in and basically doing the most work without getting anything but complaints in return. I honestly regret the amount of time and energy I spent at this place.

Disfunctional Management

The flexibility with hours is great but management is absolutely terrible. It's a very chaotic work environment. Something is always wrong. Sometimes we leave at 1 am.

you'll have stories

Managers don't care about their job. You will be overworked and underpaid. High turnover rate. Horrible work environment, people call out all the time and somehow it is your problem.

Draining and demanding

tuition reimbursement is great. Constantly deal with rude customers and it’s very busy be prepared to be stuck in one place for hours serving people. Pay is okay for the amount of work we do it should be more but it’s doable

Good starter job

Not a bad first job but didn't like inconsistent schedules and low pay. This was my first job in h8gh school though so I can't really complain to be honest

Easy work but no reward

I worked at several chipotles. Last one was at the airport in Atlanta and it was easy but I had to leave because I was not getting compensated for the work I put in. I asked for a raise and they said no so I left. Depends on how your store is running on how easy it is.

Productive and Fun Workplace

The GM is the best boss I've ever ever had. I wasn't just "thrown to the wolves" like most jobs I was actually trained really well. They make you feel like a family from day one.

Fast pace & poor management

We were understaffed & over scheduled. Prep and night cleaning would be overlooked. Overall, not terrible but it could have been a better experience.

Great people and environment

It was a chill job minus the hectic days and overload of customers. As long as management is good (which it kind of one with an exception of 1) then the overload of customers feels like a breeze. Pay is pretty little for making a living. Good for teens or side job.

Hard work,Fast

I really liked working here for awhile it really depends on location, and managers. Usually enough hours to go around because of call offs. Decent benefits.

What is the best part of working at the company?Leaving for the day and going home.What is the most stressful part about working at the company?The bosses, the work, the customers, and everything else.What is the work environment and culture like at the company?Nothing positive about it. Very toxic because of managers abusing power and wrongful dismissal.What is a typical day like for you at the company?Typically boring, stressful, tiring and annoying.

Overworked and underpaid

Was lied to about starting pay and was taught “their way” instead of chipotles standards even tho I was to be trained for a new location, on top of that was rushed through the most simple things so constantly have to ask for refreshers


Only nice thing is free food and the 401k if you make it that long


Can’t take your breaks without a lecture and can’t go to the bathroom

Management and corporate sucked

the job wasn’t too bad, but working for chipotle corporate as a whole sucked. really depends on location and co workers as well. my manager was great at the time.

Productive and fun workplace

The grill station at Chipotle is often one of the busiest areas, especially during peak hours. You'll need to handle a constant flow of orders and maintain a quick pace to ensure timely food preparation.

Good people and good food

overall had a really good time but the scheduling was terrible. no system for scheduling and if they messed it up you had to fix. got one free meal every shift but couldn’t take it home
