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 three days and we need leaders to grow with us! Our General Managers are the captains of the ship – they understand what it takes to run a strong business, hire and train great people, and help to drive our company forward. 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: * Medical, dental, and vision insurance & 401k * Quarterly bonus program * Opportunities for people-development bonuses * Career growth (need we say more?) * 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 who can oversee the preparation of safe and delicious food and maintain a clean, neat and organized restaurant * A creative approach to marketing (fundraisers, community-engagement, etc.) * Someone that loves to develop and lead a team * The ability to deliver a great guest experience * A team player who can jump in where needed * Previous restaurant experience * The ability to communicate in the primary language(s) of the work location Primary Location: Missouri - Kansas City - 0648 - Main Street KC-(00648) Work Location: 0648 - Main Street KC-(00648) 4851 Main Street Kansas City 64112 Job: Restaurant Management Job Posting: Oct. 24, 2019 Job Number: 19029969 Chipotle Mexican Grill Kansas City MO
