The Chipotle Experience
There was a time when I actually enjoyed Chipotle. A time when my parents would say that we are going there for dinner and I was excited. Well you guessed it…I no longer feel this way.
This feeling didn’t just happen in one day, but over time the place was disappointing me and soon it became hard to bounce back to liking them again.
This year…I don’t remember when because I have a bad memory…I applied to Chipotle to be a cashier/crew member. I was afraid they were going to ask me “difficult questions” during the interview like “what does fresh food mean to you?” and “do you know anything about Chipotles history?” So to prepare I researched like crazy. The day of the interview I was super nervous and my mom had to basically kick me out of the car.
The interview was at Chipotle just to be clear. When I arrived they had long lines and everyone looked busy. I waited about 5-10 minutes so the place could dial down and afterwords I told the guy at the register that I had an interview. Blah blah blah…I few moments later a (maybe) seventeen year old comes out and says she is going to interview me.
We sit down and she asks me my name, number, address and other things that are on my application. Then she asks me what days and times I would be able to work. NOW I told her that I might have spontaneous school meetings…I didn’t know what days the meetings would be on. AND that was all I said. HOWEVER I forgot to mention that I have a tutor every Monday.
She never asked me the questions that I have studied for…so that was disappointing.
After the questions she DID ask… she asked me if I wanted anything to eat because it would be on-the-house. I said “no” because my mom was waiting for me (I mentioned this). Plus I ate lunch before the meeting and I didn’t want to be weird and order one taco.
That was the interview.
My mom was in a shopping store which was nearby and so I walked down to meet her. I told her that I was happy about the meeting because they didn’t ask me “difficult questions,” but then I told her that they asked me if I wanted free food…and that I thought it was a trick question.
It was most definitely a trick question and I am very hurt that they would do this to me. I was not hired and they lost the best employee they could have had.
After this experience I made a promise to myself…without saying it…that I would no longer come to Chipotle because they continue to ruin me. As you can guess I did not pull through.
Recently, I went to Chipotle with my family maybe around 7:30 or 8. We got there, my mom tried to order, things went awry and they continued to get worse.
They had no lettuce…well that’s what they said…but then they said the wait would be five minutes for lettuce…and then they had no sour cream.
THEN the guacamole was pure brown…but the brown guac I will still eat.
This place is just not for me.
Now I am going to transition into something else
When I applied to Chipotle for the FIRST time they told me the interview would be in Cambridge. They told me on a Monday at 7 or so in the morning and said the meeting would be at 3:30. HELLO? They told me this information as you can see not that much in advance and they assume that I am able to get to that point in Cambridge after school at that time. That sentence was just as confusing and bad as the situation.
As you can guess I did not show up…I had TUTORING and did not recieve notice in enough time. PLUS in the email they said if there was any problem with the time and you cant make it…or something like that…then email us at insertemailblahblah.gmail.com…I emailed them and asked to reschedule.
They never rescheduled however they emailed me saying that I did not receive the position…wellllllll I would have gotten the position if you read the email rather than assuming that I skip interviews for amusement.
The thing I wanted to mention had nothing to do with Chipotle I was just ranting as usual.
I wanted to mention Cambridge for two seconds. I am constructing a list of what the average Cambridge citizen is like/ their stereotypes. All I have is:
- They drive Mini Coopers
- They get snobby (is that the word I am looking for?) when you almost hit them with your car when you have a green light and they no longer have the walk signal OR they choose to walk/run when the street light turns green (and they don’t have the right-of-way).
That’s all I got
I am going to continue to watch Blended with Adam Sandler because I forgot how funny the movie was.
I’m not even going to try to go back and edit this
