Application Details

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Chipotle.

Interview Details

I applied in the beginning of March and got a call back 2 weeks later. Went in for an interview and their were 10 girls. They split us up in 2 groups of 5 and started to interview us. The other group was boring and they left like 7 minutes before us. In our group their was this older woman who seemed like she was trying out for the cheerleading team and they basically salivated all over her. They knew they were going to choose her but they still waisted my time asking me for a second interview. They acted like they were interested, even took me to look around the store, but as soon as the interview was over their whole demeanor went from friendly to cold. They knew they were hiring the old proud crowd girl. As I left the 1st interview the boys came in. It literally looked like they were going to school with their nike hats, shoes, hollister sweaters etc. It pisses me off now because I came dressed professionally both times and they still probably hired those losers who could not dress up for a day, they fit the image I guess. Basically if you are outgoing and express a passion to work then you will get the job. I honestly felt like I would have gotten the job if the old cheerleader woman was not there. But, I was not going to pretend to be THAT enthusiastic when I'm not! Know what Food with Integrity is. Research Steve Ells and know your 13 characteristics.

    I applied in-person - interviewed at Chipotle in February 2013.

    Interview Details

    I called to ask if they were hiring and the manager said yes and asked me to come in for an interview that day. After the first interview they wanted me to come back for a 2nd interview were I interviewed with crew members and managers alike.(one of the assistant managers told me I was hired but there has to be 3 interviews). Finally they told me to call next Tuesday to scheduled my 3rd and last interview, I called and the manager wasn't there and they told me to call back the next day which I did, but the manager was still missing. Then that night I got an email saying I wasn't selected for employment... -_-

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Chipotle in April 2013.

    Interview Details

    Applied online at the chipotle website and was sent an e-mail about a month later asking me to go in for a group interview. About 20 other people were present. We were divided into 3 groups where we were all asked 3 questions, took about 30 minutes each. The questions weren't so hard, just go over the website and do some research on food with integrity.

    I applied online. The process took a day - interviewed at Chipotle in January 2013.

    Interview Details

    Store was dirty, staff was gernerally uninterested but pretty, being a hipster will help you get this job. Really doen't matter how much you know about the company, I memorised the entire dolly madison story including how big the first building was, when they opened new locations, read the whole article that inspired steve ells to serve healthy food. Talked at length about new green location and the use of windmills to help power resturants. Bottom line, don't be above 25, and make certain you look good in skinny jeans. Cake on make up. Again don't eat the food, the store was filthy, but the staff is pretty and useless.

    Interview Details

    Applied online and got a call a few days later/ Walked in and spoke with two supervisors. Interview started off two on one asking specific questions tailored to my resume/application, then 15 minutes later had a one on one with very generic questions. Very typical laid back interview.
     Why Chipotle?
     Long term goals?
    Teamwork examples from your past jobs.
    Strengths and weaknesses?
    How long do you see yourself at chipotle?

    Interview Details

    Called a day after submitting application. Interview was very unprofessional and there was no structure. I thought it was going to be a face to face interview, but people kept coming so i realized it would be a group interview. Interview lasted two and a half hours.

    interviewed at Chipotle in August 2012.

    Interview Details

    My experience was very odd and unprofessional. I arrived for my interview 10 minutes early and asked for the person who scheduled me. I was told he wouldn't be in for another hour but to have a seat. The lady that I spoke with told me several times that someone would be out shortly to take the interview. I waited 40 mins when she then said she would take the interview. I was asked one question then sent back to talk one-on-one with each member on the team. I did so but wasn't told how long this should take. I began to feel strange after about 30 minutes of the one-on-one chats since this interview process was SO unstructured. I then tried to follow-up with the manager to see what was next. We chatted about various things but there was NO STRUCTURE TO THIS INTERVIEW. I finally asked if they had any questions for me and they didn't have any. I then asked about the next steps and if the interview was over (I had already been there for about 2 hours). I thanked them for the interview and left the restaurant thinking "This place is TOO STRANGE!" I withdrew my application and will never again consider working for this restaurant.
    SIDE NOTE - After my experience I learned that Chipotle has a two part interview process. The first interview is simply their chance to assess you against their 13 Characteristics and the second interview is where they have you meet one-on-one with every team member. If even one team member doesn't like you, YOU WON'T BE OFFERED A JOB.

    I applied online. The process took a day - interviewed at Chipotle in July 2012.

    Interview Details

    The interview was actually a pre-screening interview. I was asked about my availability, what position I wanted, pay, hours available, etc. I was also asked why I wanted to work there. The interviewer was to the point in his/her responses to my questions. The process lasted no more than 5 minutes.

    I applied in-person. The process took a day - interviewed at Chipotle in May 2011.

    Interview Details

    Pretty much a standard interview. Asked what I knew about Chipotle, and other standard questions. Only thing annoyed me was the manager introduced himself with no eye contact and had paper in one hand and reached to pull a chair out with the other, so I was not able to give a firm handshake.
