      Pros

      You get to cook great food and work in a fast paced environment. Definitely fast food, with little control over recipes, but you still get to cook Chipotle's famous chicken and other grill ingredients. Benefits are also really good. Very cheap health insurance with dental and eye care. My manager was also great and told me he was able to climb the local restaurant's ladder with ease.

      Cons

      Long hours, really fast paced if you're on the grill. It is both a pro and con. One missed timing and everyone is waiting on you. You are one of the main driving forces of the kitchen. Clean up can get very frustrating as you spend 45 min - 1hr every day. Other grill masters, however, can be extremely unfriendly and sometimes have large bloated egos. Can get into unnecessary fights and bad blood with other members of the staff, like the extremely hardworking and necessary dishwashing team. Perhaps to be expected like in any work environment? Not quite sure as this was my second job ever.

      Pros

      Cool people and, when busy, time flies.

      Cons

      Constant changes to expectations, and incredibly strict despite these often contradictory changes. Job expectations do not match compensation. Opportunity to make a career in salaried positions, but it takes an outsized effort to reach and stay in these positions. Have seen multiple GMs burn out or be on the verge of breakdown due to long hours, stress, etc.
