    I worked at Chipotle part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The food is good and you get free meal each day you work and a half-off discount on your days off.

    Cons

    I mean it's your typical entry-level food service job; the insurance has a high deductible, the customers can be rude, the tasks are pretty remedial. It definitely convinced me to stay in college.

    24/7 video surveillance was used as a threat on numerous occasions in order to monitor job performance, employees were often overworked and fired for strange reasons.
