The management and the way they treated those who violated rules.

Take the time to weigh the pros and cons of a job not only before you get it but while you're in it and after to examine the job and how it impacted you. Good resume fuel!

What I liked

I like working at Chipotle because it allows me to practice my leadership and communication skills in a fast-paced work environment. Being able to work on my customer service skills on a day-to-day basis in such an intimate setting has allowed to further expand my professional horizions.

I would say overall the only thing I would have changed about my experience is the amount I worked each week. I averaged about thirty hours per week, but wish I could have worked fourty plus.

Advice

I would say come into this role with an open mind. Be willing to be part of a team and you will highly enjoy this opportunity. Communication, leadership, and accountablity are all huge aspects of this job.

What I liked

I love working at Chipotle. I've been there for almost 3 years and they are always accommodating with my school schedule. I love my crew and management.

What I wish was different

I work in the Valley Plaza location and sometimes we do get customers who are really rude and sometimes try to start problems with the crew over ridiculous things. I wish the company would back up their employees more.

Advice

Don't take anything personal.

Fast Food Worker

August 2017 • Alhambra, CA

What I liked

The work environment is very friendly and fast-paced, allowing me to gain experience in the team environment.

What I wish was different

Recognition from supervisors. I feel great when I'm being told that I'm doing a good job. However, I didn't hear that too often this past summer. I received more compliments from customers than I did my managers.

Advice

It's tough at first adjusting to the fast-paced, High demand work environment, but once you get the hang of it, it's a really beneficial experience that could go a long way in my future career.
