To begin with, my co-worker told me this site existed so I decided to check it out and god damn there is a lot of opinions of how it sucks to suck being a Chipotle crew member. Here's my story.

I started working at Chipotle in July of 2013 so I basically been at Chipotle for 14 months up to date. I'm basically a veteran in all stations front of the house and I've started closing prep recently and as the title says, it sucks to suck. When I started working at Chipotle I thought things would be interesting, it's a fast pace environment, the crew seems chill and the managers seem nice. Once I started working there the first couple of weeks it was hard as FUCK. Excuse my language but literally it was hard as FUCK. You are put in your station and you basically have to ABSORB EVERYTHING the "trainer" is telling you. Whether it be from the tortilla station, salsa station, cash, expo, ETC. They throw a fuckton of shit you have to remember so that way on your third day you're good to go.For me, I was a fast learner only because I TRIED SO FUCKING HARD TO REMEMBER EVERYTHING THEY THREW AT ME. Literally you're a fucking sponge soaking up all the information you can get and if you leave anything out you're basically fucked, especially if you're closing/opening a station. So besides the fuckton of work you have to do everyday, more stress is built from the customers. I understand that working with the general public is obviously in the job description but got damn you're basically everyone's bitch at Chipotle. During rush hour, customers come in and order the crazy shit holding up the line. Your managers begin to question if you just suck overall since you can't move the line or the customers are just being hella indecisive or overly asking for way too much shit. It usually just ends up as you being to slow to move the line thus you get either a write up or they tell you that you will be fired if you don't fucking work harder. Side story: I was on tortilla for the 8th month I was working there and an asshole walks up to the glass and ask for a burrito with his kid. I ask him, okay what choice of rice would you like and he says that he wanted rice. I said again what choice of rice would you like, white or brown? He said again I want the rice. I then said you have the choice of the cilantro lime rice in brown or white. He then said he wanted the white. I gave him EXACTLY ONE CORRECT SERVING SIZE THAT I HAVE BEEN GIVING ALL OTHER CUSTOMERS SINCE MY MANAGER TOLD ME THIS IS THE CORRECT SERVING SIZE, and he says what are you doing? I said, I'm sorry what happen? He then said you're not doing it right. Give me more rice. The second he said that I looked him in the windows of his god damn soul and said with so much regret, I am sorry for giving you the wrong portion size, I'll give you some more. He then told me to do my job right. At that exact moment I literally was about to lose my shit, but of course I can't do anything since I'm basically a bitch for the shitty pay. Started my shift with a smile, ended it what a middle finger up in the sky. Back to the main story. So yeah. Working at chipotle sucks. If you work your ass off you get place with the noobies since you're deemed a strong "top performer" so you can carry the team during rush and oh how that sucks to suck. You also have to work hard for your hours. You don't fucking go above and beyond to the point where your breaking your balls then you basically get no hours. Literally. You only get a 10 minute break for a 4 hour shift so you can't get food far unless you bring it. You get a 30 minute and 2 10 minute breaks for an 8 hour shift which is I'd say decent. But If you're up for sore feet since you're standing all day and running everywhere to do shit, then so be it. What else sucks? The work. You are a bitch and I mean a bitch when it comes to the work. You have a fuckton of tasks to complete NO MATTER WHAT. WHETHER IT BE A LINE TO OR OUT THE FUCKING DOOR FOR 2-3 HOURS ON END or YOUR CREW MEMBERS DON'T DO THEIR JOBS SO YOU'RE STUCK DOING THEIR SHIT AND YOUR SHIT AT THE SAME DAMN TIME. All this labor in the amount of time you work is over kill. I come home literally with my feet falling off and my mom looking at me as if I'm some paraplegic idiot just trying to get to his bed to knock the fuck out. What's next? The pay. You are paid minimum wage like everywhere else except you do WAYYYYYYYYYYYY MORE WORK. I'm pretty sure there's some tedious jobs out there. But with chipotle. We all know that it's overkill for those who work or have worked at this shitty establishment. Honestly. The only ONLY ONLYYYYY reason why I am still working at chipotle is because I can't find another job which is the sad part. So with all this being said overall I recommend not to work at chipotle unless you want to go into work everyday hoping to Jesus that someone manages to burn down the store.
