    I have been working at Chipotle part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Free food every shift. Half-off food outside of work. Health/Dental/Optical benefits even at part-time. Tuition reimbursement program after a certain amount of time employed. Decent wages. Only hires managers from within. Extremely protective sick policy.

    Cons

    If over 18, typically long shifts, morning or night. Usually very busy all the time. High standards for food safety. (A con if you're lazy, not for the customers though) Rude/impatient customers. (They're used to extremely fast service, bad if understaffed or crazy busy) Online orders are insane.
