Hi! I've been working for Chipotle for slightly over a year and "learnt" a lot both about people and work.
Before Chipotle I had had similar type of a job with the same payment, good food, and just a BETTER management. When I got hired at a new Chipotle store in the beginning of the summer, I worked really hard and managed to get my GM to tell me that I would be appointed to become a Kitchen Manager if I quit my other job. In fact, I quit my first job and was looking forward to becoming a manager by still working my a$$ off. One month passed, second month passed, even after the four months I was still "in training" to become a manager. So, the college was about to start, and my GM comes up to me and says if could work 5 times a week as a manager. To be honest, if they told me in the very beginning that I had to work 5 days a week, full-time, to become a manager, I would have never quit my first job and would never have joined Chipotle. So, I told him I would only agree to do only four days as education is the priority. He said he'd see and ask his boss about that. Since then, I've completely lost any motivation to work there further. Even after when I worked three-four days a week, I was still one of the best and fastest worker at the store for five more months, and it was just painful to hear that people who are much less faster, lack of effort, motivation, BUT work full time, were getting promoted. I did not just want to stand that and gave up and quit.
Chipotle is not a $hitty place to work. No, not at all. There are, certainly, bad sides. If you want a career without college diploma, go ahead and join Chipotle. If you want just some extra cash, go ahead again! But most of the time, the managers are unprofessional young people who treat emloyees unproperly instead of motivating them by showing, training and even talking to them. The managers also tend to have favorites there most of whom can be just lazy, slow in terms of a Chipotle employee. Lastly, for a minimum wage, you're expected to do lots of stuff.
