I've been with Chipotle for almost 10 years. I was let go exactly 11 days short of my 10 year anniversary. I had a company car, I would've had a nice 10 yr anniversary gift, and 2 months of Sabbatical along with my 3 weeks of vacation. The reason for my termination was be cause I was not developing people which was bullshit. I had promoted someone from crew to Kitchen Manager a month prior and I had entries in the Journals, which they said I had none. I know they fired me because of how long I was there and to save on money. Chipotle is so big on "promoting from within" that people are getting promoted too quick and aren't even the right people to manage the store or manage shifts. I, as a manager, wasn't going to promote just anyone to help run my store. I find it hard to believe that some can be hired as a crew and promoted to each manager level in 5 months and be ready to run a store...especially with how high Chipotle's standards are. The person who took over my store was an SM for a few weeks before being promoted to Appentice and she's apparently turned my store upside down and doesn't know what the fuck she's doing. When I started with Chipotle 10 years ago, I was proud to work for a company with such an amazing concept. Customers paid $0.50 if they wanted beans and fajitas, or more than 1 salsa. Now, customers get whatever they want, however much they want, and I think that's why people love Chipotle so much. I can guarantee that if they went to Subway or Panda Express, they can't abuse the portions like they can at Chipotle. Chipotle has changed so much over the years and I think the company was better 10 years ago. I would get so annoyed at how greedy the guests are now, how the guests know if they put up a fight at the register for over payment then they get their meal for free, or if they say "I get charged this way at another Chipotle" they get their meal for free. Customers would call in making a false claim and what would we do?...give them free food. Chipotle is so concered about the customers that the crew is being overlooked. Yes the crew can get benifits, free food on their breaks, paid breaks, bonuses and vacation time, but for the amount of work they do every day, they don't get paid shit. The crew busts their asses every day but when it comes time for raises, they get an average of $0.10. That is a fucking joke and everytime I did reviews, none of the crew were ever happy with their raises. I think Chipotle needs to go back to the way they were and need to adhere to the "Pepper" again. I
