Personal Development From Day One
You won’t find microwaves, can openers, or freezers here. So don’t expect to find typical job descriptions, either. Being part of the Chipotle crew means learning the skills to grow as a person and a leader. Nurturing the growth of our people is a large part of our mission to cultivate a better world.
Culinary and Business Chops
Beyond your knife skills, you’ll learn about food quality, safety, hospitality, and the business side of what it takes to run a restaurant.
Our path to leadership can take as little as 18 months and includes programs like Cultivate U, which prepares you to lead a team.
Benefits to Go Beyond
From our debt-free college degree program to health and wellness benefits, we take our commitment to our people seriously.
