What I liked

I liked that Chipotle tries to help students. Every year that a college student works with Chipotle, a portion of your tuition is reimbursed. There are also opportunites to advance in the company and earn college credits.

Cashier

May 2020 - August 2021 • Avon, OH

What I liked

I liked that the work was repetitive and didn't require too much thought on my part.

What I wish was different

I wish that customers would have worn masks more and that we would have gotten longer breaks.

Advice

My advice is don't take anything too personally. Customers may be rude. Your coworkers may get on your nerves. Just remember that it doesn't matter or have anything to do with you. All you need to do is get in, do your best for your shift, get paid, and get out. It's a good job if you frame it right.

Crew Member

August 2018 • Fort Collins, CO

What I liked

I like the people that I work with, how well chipotle works with my college schedule and any other accommodations I need, and I like that they offer tuition reimbursement.

What I wish was different

I wish that the management was different in terms of how things are handled and I wish that there would have been more staff for how busy we get.

Advice

I would say that working a summer job (especially at chipotle) is a more of a commitment than people thing mainly when working full time and only to do it knowing that.

Crew member

May - September 2019 • Savannah, GA

What I liked

I loved my co-workers. They made me feel at home when I first started and they ensured that I was trained properly.

What I wish was different

I feel as though there could have been more teamwork involved when working under pressure. If there would have been a better sense of teamwork, we could have prepared and served food more efficiently.

Advice

If you are considering working at Chipotle, be prepared for a fast paced work environment. During peak hours (lunch and dinner time) things can get pretty busy and, at times, it can be overwhelming. As long as you stay focused and work together as a team, your work experience will be one to remember.

October 2018 - August 2019 • Columbia, MO

What I liked

I liked how student orientated it was, making it easier to connect with people and have a positive work environment.

What I wish was different

I wish the scheduling had been different, I think it was the inconsistency of the scheduling that had left me unhappy with working there.

Advice

I would say if you like free food, and need a job that keeps you busy, I would recommend it highly.
