Bain Consultant Quits To Work At ... Chipotle

Hasnain Zaidi graduated from Duke University in 2008, and soon landing a job at Bain & Company, the prestigious management consulting firm. But after a few years, he got itchy. He wanted something more. Something creative. So he left his job to go work at Chipotle.

On the burrito chain's assembly line, Zaidi told Huffington Post Live that he learned "some very real world skills that we didn't pick up in our high pressure jobs," like "dealing with people that make minimum wage or close to minimum wage, chopping chicken, grilling, dealing with customers."
