Good news if you work at a Chipotle and if you have school tuition to pay for. The popular food restaurant has made a major announcement. They are pledging to pay 100% of their workers free college tuition. According to Dispatch.com, Chipotle has teamed with Guild Education for the program, which will offer 75 different degrees, ranging from high school diplomas to bachelor’s degrees in business and technology. Five national universities — University of Arizona, Bellevue University, Brandman University, Southern New Hampshire University and Wilmington University — are participating, offering in-person and online courses.
To qualify, employees must work a minimum of just 15 hours each week. The benefit kicks in after a worker has been with the company for 120 days. Not a bad deal if you ask me. Chipotle Chief People Officer Marissa Andrada said in a written statement, “Chipotle recognizes that financial barriers can be one of the biggest obstacles that impede our employees from achieving their fullest potential. We are proud to launch this opportunity for debt-free degrees by providing free tuition to help our employees excel in all areas in their lives, both in and out of Chipotle.
