Chipotle Mexican Grill

Crew Member

August 2017 • Pittsburgh, PA

What I liked

Extremely friendly coworkers. Fast-paced environment so I was never bored. Learned new positions over the summer such as Grill and Cash Register.

What I wish was different

I wish training new employees was more focused on, because newer employees were very slow and had so many questions post-training. Understandable though, because we were very understaffed

Advice

Be eager to learn and work fast!

May - August 2019 • Athens, OH

What I liked

The store is dead in the summer. There is never a line to the door so I am able to keep the restaurant stocked and clean more efficiently. The store also goes from closing at 11 to closing at 10.

What I wish was different

I would not have changed anything about working there this past summer.

Advice

If you want a fun job and a great place to be for a summer, getting a summer job in Athens and living here is an experience you won't regret.

What I liked

Busy job, rarely was boring. Coworkers were fun and a pleasure to work with. Management was mostly good.

Service Manager

November 2014 • Charlotte, NC

What I liked

I’ve worked for the company for a couple of years now and overall it’s been an enjoyable experience. I’ve have to take a couple leave of absences for school and each time I am welcomed back with open arms.

What I wish was different

My store in particular has gone through many general managers and that, in my opinion, causes the growth of the store to slow down.

Advice

Do your best at doing your job and you can move up in he company as well as make th company better.

Kitchen Manager

January - September 2018 • St. George, UT

What I liked

I liked the responsibility. I also liked the cleanliness that Chipotle holds their restaurants to be.

What I wish was different

I wish that Chipotle had not micromanaged as much as they had and that they treated their employees better.

Advice

If you go to work for Chipotle, expect it to be very hard work and very customer oriented. With the amount of work that they have they should be paying more than other fast food, but they're average. They care more about their customers than their employees, but this will teach you how to work and how to manage your time properly to get things done.
