Certified Trainer

May 2018 • Lincoln, NE

What I liked

The people at the job are phenomenal and you can score some awesome connections through getting to know coworkers and managers.

What I wish was different

The environment is high paced and high stress, so it's definitely not for everyone. It involves a lot of recognizing your mistakes and learning from them. Management can often be critical.

Advice

You get what you put into it- you can move up quickly if you're willing to put in the hard work, or you can stay at the same position for the duration of your job. Chipotle is a decent food service job, better than most other fast food, and it pays well.
