Crew Member Interview

Application Details

I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Chipotle in December 2014.

Interview Details

Applied online and it only took 5 days e-mailing me that they want to interview me. I got there 10 minutes early from the time that I was asked to be there and met 4 other people. The manager was 10-15 minutes late before doing a group interview. He basically told us what Chipotle as a company is, what their job is and more about working for Chipotle. At the end, he told us that he will contact us by e-mail or call us if we're going to get a second interview and get closer to being hired in Chipotle.

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Chipotle in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied on a Thursday; that Friday I got a call saying they wanted me to come in for an interview on Tuesday (today). Beforehand I just did a little research on the history of Chipotle and what they're "about". On the day of the interview I got there about 10 minutes early; they gave me a soda and told me I'd be interviewed in the dining area, where another guy was sitting. Before the interview, two more people came in so it became clear that it'd be a group interview, which I was fine with.
    The interviewer turned out to be the same woman who had called me about setting up and interview a few days earlier (and I assume she also called the other three?). She asked maybe two questions before she said, "Oops, almost forgot, you're all over 18, right?"
    I told her that no, I'm currently 16 but I had put my age on my application at least twice. One of the other interviewees also said he was 16 and that he'd done the same. The woman kind of tsk-tsk'd at us, and told us that we had to be at least 18 to work at Chipotle, kind of in a way that made me feel like I was somehow supposed to know this, despite my application going through just fine. So, Chipotle serves alcohol, and you have to be 18 to be able to work around it. Then she asked me when I was turning 17. I told her the month and she told me to try and apply after my birthday. Which kind of totally contradicted what she had said beforehand about being 18.
    Anyway, I couldn't finish the interview and I was asked to leave along with the other person. I have been trying to keep a leveled head since but it's a little hard not to feel a little angry. It was a bit unprofessional to ask me to come for an interview, then have me leave after less than 15 minutes. I am admittedly questioning how closely they even looked at my application since, like I said, I put down at least twice that I am under 18. The employees I talked to beforehand were all very nice, but this is still kind of disappointing.

    I applied online. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Chipotle in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied on a Thursday and got an email about a job fair for the following Monday. I came Monday at 3 and it was a group interview. It was several other people. There was a notepad going around and we wrote our name, number, and email on it. I was prepared and gave clear answers. I was the only person who knew about the mission statement and the history about chipotle. My availability was pretty open I guess that was not enough for them. She said we would be notified in 24 hours via email if we got the job or not.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Chipotle in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied here last Saturday and got an email saying they would like to interview me that Wednesday. The interview went great, every single crew member said they liked me and the GM told me to come again this Monday for a second review. But then, I got an email saying they reviewed my application and don't have a position to offer me. It kinda through me off but I'm still going to go to the interview and tell them about it. I'll update on my second interview.

    Interview Questions
    • Every single crew member asked me what I knew about the company. All were impressed because they said that the only thing people say when they come in is that they just like the food. Also, they ask for examples of how you are a leader, and how would your friends describe me.   Answer Question

    I applied online – interviewed at Chipotle in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    first there was a group interview, get asked a couple of questions and then later on see if you receive an email for a second interview or not. I got an email went in second interview you get showed around and meet crew members, and a small interview about 3-4 questions nothing hard. Then see if you get an email. Haven't received in email for 2 weeks now I really thought I had this job in the bag but if this happens to you don't give up! Chipotle is VERY picky so you have to shine, ask lots of questions and be bubbly!

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Chipotle.

    Interview Details

    I received an email for an interview and a week after that interview I called to follow up. The general manager said she forgot to call me but wanted to do a second interview so I went. A week after that interview I called to follow up again and received yet another interview, all by different managers. At the end of the third interview they told me that the final interview would be by the general manager and that I should receive a call back later today or tomorrow. After three days I decided to follow up myself, yet again, and received the response of "Oh I forgot to ask the other manager about you call back at 4". I call back and am told that the general manager had just left and that my message would be relayed to her and that she would get back to me later today or the next morning. I found it highly unprofessional and a huge bother. I won't be following up anymore even though I really wanted to work there. I don't really understand why four interviews is required to wrap burritos part-time, and then being put off like that.
