My name is John and I used to work for Chipotle 2 years ago in the Kansas City area. I was hired as a back of the house worker doing prep and cooking with hopes of working towards management. Chipotle is a very deceiving company with their talks of praise and how great it is to work there. I got sucked into this hell hole for several months without going anywhere.
I love how they say they pride themselves on promoting from within the company but I was working under an area manager who got hired as an area manager and was a complete moron. This overpaid jerk off was the classic micro manager douche bag who had little concern for the well being of his employees.
I worked so hard at this job doing everything in my power to be a great employee and do well to try and become a kitchen manager. Our area manager was named Mo (giant asshole). Now this sorry excuse for a leader rarely gave out positive or constructive criticism during his visits. He would come in and terrorize the store and berate the employees like they were pieces of shit. It was awful people would cry and even quit it was so bad. Personally I got so frustrated during one of visits I just left the store for half an hour to keep from hitting him and everybody there was understanding of why I had to leave.
This dick would never give you any direction either. Every time I was wondering how I was doing on becoming a kitchen manager he would just give vague answers such as "you're not ready yet" or "you have more work to do". Ok what am I doing wrong you stupid piece of shit if you tell me I can get better. So after hearing horror stories from other kitchen managers about how it took some of them over a year to become one I knew this job was not me. I had quit a salary management job in hopes of rising up the management ladder at Chipotle. So after I quit a good job I was not going to be stuck as an hourly slave at Chipotle. Mo if you ever read this go fuck yourself. I loved my co-workers and hope working conditions have improved because they were all such wonderful people.
I do have to say thanks Chipotle because I finally got the courage to go back to college and finish my degree. Currenty I am furthering my education and doing very well thanks to quitting Chipotle. So at least this job showed me what I did not want to do with my life. I still like the food and appreciate the hard workers that slave away for this company.
