Chipotle Plans to Add 4,000 Workers in One Day

As Chipotle continues to become one of the most important food staples of our generation with every taco and burrito sold, not only are they are expanding their business across the country, but jobs as well.

According to Refinery29, Chipotle plans to hire 4,000 employees in September, all of whom will work at 1,900 of Chipotle’s already established locations and its 200 new locations that will be launched by the end of 2015. On September 9, Chipotle will open all US locations three hours early to conduct their interviews between 8 am and 11 am. A part-time or full-time Chipotle worker makes $10 an hour, receives paid time off and sick leave, tuition reimbursement (where employers may pay for some of an employee’s education), 401(k) and health insurance, reports the Wall Street Journal. While previous fast-food experience is not required for applicants, managers look for 13 characteristics that promote hospitality and happiness when serving customers.

"Working here isn’t just a job, but a career where employees learn how to make others better, run a successful business, master culinary skills, and most importantly, lead teams of top performers," said Monty Moran, Chipotle's co-chief executive officer, in a press release. Managing positions can result in average salary of $67,000 and more advanced roles can receive six-figure salaries. And, working one’s way up seems to be the way to go since 95% of the managers are promoted from within the Chipotle family.

With this new expansion, this family doesn’t seem like it will stop growing!
