I worked for Chipotle for a little over a year before I called it quits. I started as crew, sold by their talk of "empowerment", of them being there for their people and all of the awesome benefits of working for this "great" company! Yeah well I found out really quickly how much bullshit they were selling me. I got promoted to kitchen manager and a few months later to the service manager position. I will say they do move people up fast but only so they can use you to their full advantage. The amount of time and effort put into that store is never enough, and forget trying to find any reliable person to help keep up with stuff at crew level. You're lucky if you get a break to eat let alone sit down. Also when people come in from corporate all they look at is the numbers and how we couldn't have possibly had a successful peak with only 5 people working...that doesn't cover peak! Fuck that, they never look at anything you've actually done to make the day good, they always look at whats wrong, or what they think is wrong, yeah super empowering. I have never worked with more suck up, fake, over the top bullshitters, as when I worked for Chipotle. We had our R+ field leader come in and literally tell us our store was messy because the boxes were not perfectly straight on the shelf and because a piece of paper was crinkled on our bulletin board. (He was dead serious, like it was a really big deal) Yea while I'm in the middle of running a multi million dollar store, Ill be sure to make straightening a box or printing off a fresh sheet of paper my first priority. Not to mention we have always got over 100's on all food and cleanliness audits....but that crinkled paper tho.... That was just the straw that broke the camels back, along with being overworked, underpaid, underappreciated, and made to feel bad for being any other emotion beside fucking fake happy, I just couldn't do it anymore. I refuse to work for a company that treats people like that and wants you to be fake happy all the time, that's not life! Oh and our chicken has been coming through the company perdue, which is the WORST company ever, they treat their animals terribly, how we were ever associated with them when we preach such high standards, is beyond me. This company burns out its people, has unrealistic expectations, and they literally just fucking suck!!!
