The annoyingly long lines at Chipotle might be over at last. New York Daily News reports that Big Sean’s favorite burrito chain will be going on a major one-day hiring binge. The restaurant will reportedly be hiring up to 4,000 new employees, and has over 2,000 new jobs already listed on its website.
Our first thought: It’s going to take a lot of time and money to teach 4,000 new employees how to finesse the meat, a.k.a. how to take chicken out of your burrito when you’re not looking—but we’ll leave it up to the multibillion-dollar chain to figure out labor costs.
Recently, the restaurant chain has been increasing wages and upping employee benefits, giving every burrito hypebeast good reason to follow in the footsteps of Machine Gun Kelly and start working behind the burrito-making counter.
For Chipotle’s National Career Day, which will be held on September 9th, Chipotle locations will open three hours earlier than usual, and managers will be interviewing up to 60 applicants at a time. The competition will be fierce.
The Chipotle website makes burrito-slinging sound like a pretty sweet deal, with mentions of a $10-an-hour starting salary, 401(k) plans, and tuition reimbursements. If you’re hoping to one day work your way up in the corporate world, just know that the fast-casual restaurant has been known to hire from within. Many of the chain’s employees work their way up to the ‘restaurateur’ role, which includes a six-figure salary, stock privleges, and a company car. Dream big, fam.
From Chipotle’s perspective, now seems like the perfect time for a hiring spree, given that the chain blamed a recent food-poisoning outbreak at a Simi Valley, California Chipotle on a “severe shortage of staff.”
