    Crew Member Interview

    Application Details

    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.

    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!

    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    Group interveiw. wrote our names and number on a piece of paper, she asked five simple interveiw questions. I was the only one who knew history of the company and asked questions trying to be engaged in conversation. I was being very positive and "upbeat". She said she would check our application for availability, and we would get a call if we got it and a email if we didn't get it. I was emailed 3 hours later that I didn't get the job. I'm only 16 and I'm assuming it's because I'm not available enough. So just make sure you have a good attitude and be very available.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Chipotle.

    Interview Details

    Group interview was easy and fast. Sadly it was too quick, especially since it was a group interview.The management wasnt asking many questions, he mostly talked about the company and himself.It was the typical easy questions so you shouldnt worry, mostly just do research on the company.Ask questions. Also multiple interviews are likely to happen.

    Crew Member Interview

    Application Details

    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.

    District Manager - Toronto Interview

    Interview Details

    They contacted me asking me to do a video interview, so I spent the morning researching the company, policies, past questions etc.

    The video interview consisted of only 3 questions, none of which related to the company.

    They emailed me almost a month later saying that my experience and qualifications weren't appropriate fur the position - if this was the case then why o why did you waste my time with this stupid video interview???
