I am currently employed as a crew member at shipotle. Every thing that has been written about the working conditions there is true. It's run like a sweatshop, management can barely speak or read/write english. No one knows how to make a proper schedule. If you typically need to keep people an hour after they are scheduled to be off, then compensate for it on next weeks schedule!!!! Training videos are blatant brainwashing. Obivious to anyone aware of such techniques. Perfect example: the "food with integrity" video. The one with the willie nelson cover of coldplay's "scientist." The fact that both artists signed off on this is very disgraceful to at least one of their legacies. As the video is complete corporate propaganda.
The music mix throughout the day is monotonous, and designed to increase productivity. Most of the songs are constructed with repeating loops, similar bpm, and no variations. So you end up working to the rythym they provide you. Suprise! More brainwashing. If i could paste sheet music i would show the non employees. I formerly listened to a few of the bands they play. Now, i never want to hear them again.
Customers are mostly comprised of yuppies, their over-privileged spawn, and the people who want a horse portion of rice and meat. Or moms that don't want their kids to go through puberty at 7. And hold up the line while their indecisive child twies to make a choice in every phase. Yet, they still let them eat 1500 calorie burritos. I'm sure it's healthier for your child to eat a burrito almost as big as their face than mcdonald's. I've seen people waddle in with a cane due to their obesity. Looking for that salty satisfaction. Food with integrity my ass. You're mostly getting sodium and carbs.
I am constantly told to smile more, even durring peak hours. Because a line out the door isn't stressful enough. Now i have a manager dictating my mood. And i get it, no one wants a grumpy person to make their food. But how can you keep a positive attitude in this environment. One that's obviously designed to break employees down and re-program them accordingly.
I had intended to move up in this company. But it seems like the only way to do that is to pucker up and get on your knees. I have never worked in an environment, where you're expected to interupt a conversation. Just to talk to an area manager, and prove that you're this bubbly, outgoing, top performer. So i waste my experience cleaning bathrooms, scooping beans, and over-salting chicken, now that's how you develop some one..
I read SOO many of your inside stories tonight. They all scream the same thing. Hostile work environment, poor conditions, mental degradation, racism going every direction, and an overall disgust for food with "integrity". I called in today. I could not stand the thought of being a roboroller 5000 tonight. My jaw hurts from the forced smiling and asking people the same three questions over and over and over. Rice, beans, meat. Wtf do u want? Don't look at the menu, All of the options are right in front of your face!
