    Chipotle will hire more workers to help with its imminent “burrito season.” 

    The Mexican fast-food chain aims to take on a total of 19,000 new staff members before its restaurants experience their typical busy season that spans March to May, it said Wednesday.

    Chipotle’s announcement of hiring efforts coincided with the company unveiling a slew of new employee benefits.

    Eligible employees will now have access to a financial well-being education platform and up to 4% salary-based matching contributions to their 401(k) “if they make eligible student loan payments,” both facilitated by SoFi services, according to the fast-food chain. Other new benefits include a Visa card with Cred.ai credit-building features and additional mental health resources.
