    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Chipotle (Wayne, PA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    I had an interview the day after I put in the application because I was referred by a current employee. My first interview was with the service manager which was really fun because it felt like more of a conversation (we laughed a lot). She asked me to come back the next day for the interview with the general manager. I came back and was interviewed by the GM along with about 8 employees. That was different. It just felt like a conversation with friends that are catching up. They vibe was amazing. It took them no time to deliberate, I was welcomed to their chipotle family on the spot.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Chipotle (Salt Lake City, UT).

    Interview

    They want you to be a people person, they want you to start chatting it up and getting along with the crew from the start. Your past experience doesn't matter, they wont even ask. You will start out as crew and earn promotions from there. Don't expect a typical interview or you will be caught off guard.

    Interview Questions

    Reasons for Declining

    I want to work somewhere where my years of experience count for something. The company seems highly unorganized.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Chipotle (Atlanta, GA) in June 2014.

    Interview

    I applied online to all of the Chipotle's in my area (14). I was invited to multiple interviews a day later. I went to the first one available, and it was a group interview with about 12-15 people. We were split into groups, my group had six people. The interview was actually very easy, I was very enthusiastic to work for Chipotle, and knew a lot about the company and what they stood for (Food With Integrity, the Steve Ells story, etc) The interview was about 30 minutes long. Don't be afraid to be the first or second person to answer - it makes you seem confident and like you really want the job! Be friendly, funny, and eager and you should land the job.

    Interview

    When interviewing at chipotle, the interview process takes a while to complete. I personally went to 3 interviews meeting members of the crew and manager team, and have still not gotten a confirmation of my employment despite performing well in the interviews.
