VIEW JOBS 4/18/2019 12:00:00 AM 2019-07-17T00:00 District Manager (19012226) Description When Chipotle first opened its doors in 1993, the idea was simple: show that food served fast didn't have to be a typical "fast-food" experience. More than two decades later, not much has changed: we prepare fresh ingredients by hand every day using classic cooking techniques. You won't find a single microwave or can opener in our restaurants; rather, a full team of employees passionate about cooking and serving real food while pleasing every guest that comes through our doors. It's that combination of fresh, delicious food and industry-leading customer service that keeps our guests coming back. Chipotle is growing fast – we're opening a restaurant every two days and we need leaders to grow with us! Our Area Managers oversee multiple restaurant locations – they understand the importance of strong partnerships with restaurant managers and how to run a great operation. Our mission motivates us day-in, day-out: to cultivate a better world. If that sounds like something you'd like to be a part of, read more below and apply today. What's in it for you: * Career growth (need we say more?) * Opportunities for people-development bonuses * Medical, dental, and vision insurance & 401k * Quarterly bonus plan * Company car or mileage reimbursement * Paid time off * Holiday closures What we're looking for: * A friendly, enthusiastic attitude * Someone who knows the ins-and-outs of running a business (P&L management, food safety, sales-forecasting, staffing…you get the gist) * Someone that can foster and enforce an environment where food safety is paramount * Someone that loves to develop a team and lead through others * A strong focus on the guest experience * The ability to train and validate employees on key elements of the operation * A team player who can jump in where needed * Previous multi-unit restaurant experience * The ability to communicate in the primary language(s) of the work location Primary Location: California - San Jose - 2110 - McKee and N.
