    I have been working at Chipotle part-time

    Pros

    Family culture, very organized working structure and fair pay. Well managed systems to track progress and affairs

    Cons

    Too much stress at times of heavy work. Understaffing at times leads to work pressure.

    Advice to Management

    Better pay and differentiation between staff since not everyone does the same work. Make changes to the menu so that you don't crumble under competition.

    I worked at Chipotle part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Really great coworkers, paid breaks, free meal per shift, tuition reimbursement

    Cons

    The work that is expected from grill and prep is pretty insane, this is coming from someone who understands the importance of working hard. These 2 positions had the highest turnover rate while I was working here. Another con is that most managers made me feel like the work I did was ever enough. Very dissapointing when you're literally doing the best you can. Also, the distribution of work at my location did not seem very fair.

    Advice to Management

    Do not power trip.
