    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Chipotle.

    Interview

    I applied online and received a call about a week later to come in for an interview. I thought I would be interviewing with a manager but apparently the first interview is with employees that you would be working with. It was extremely casual not like a normal interview. They asked me a few questions and said they'd give me a call back if they liked me. I got a call back bit I didn't go to the interview because I got another job.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Chipotle (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    It took forever! I don't know why they have you come in like 3-4 times for interviews with different people, at the end of the day the general manager decides (even though they make the crew believe it was a group decision).

    Interview Questions

    • Typical questions. How you'd hear about the job, why do you want to work here, what do you know about the company, describe yourself, strengths, weaknesses, etc...   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Chipotle (Pittsford, NY) in June 2015.

    Interview

    I came in for a first interview, which was with the general manager. He asked questions, I asked questions and we laughed. I was then invited in for a second one, with a different manager and one other crew member. It went well, so I got a call and came in for a third interview with the original general manager I met and a different other crew member. We chatted, laughed/joked around, and they excused themselves. When the general manager came back, he asked, "Do you still want to work here?" and I said Of course, and he said I got the job.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Chipotle (Kansas City, MO) in June 2015.

    Interview

    I applied on Saturday night around 10pm. I then got a call that Wednesday around 7:50pm but couldnt answer so I returned the call around 8. Over the phone he asked when was I available to come in for an interview and I said as soon as possible. He set the time for 2:00pm for the very next day. I arrived at the chipotle about 15 minutes before my interview and everyone was welcoming. I first had an interview with the owner of the restaurant and that lasted less than 10 minutes. This interview went really well. Then he told me to hold on. I had second interview with the manager and she really liked me, and that interview lasted less than 10 minutes as well. She also told me to hold on. My last interview was with an employee and we had a conversation based on likes and interests, this was also less than 10 minutes. After that was done I waited for about 10 minutes and the owner of the store offered me a job on the spot!

    I read so much about the company because i read other interviews and thats what they said to do, but no questions were asked about the company with all three interviews. Also be sure to smile A LOT and have PERSONALITY!

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 daysinterviewed 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 – interviewed at Chipotle (Manchester, NH) in June 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online and was contacted three days later to come in for an interview. I came in thinking it was an individual interview it came to find it was a group interview with two other girls. The GM said that she wanted us to be comfortable so she chose to do a group interview. We met other employees and they all seemed to be really close and happy to be there. The atmosphere is really cool and everyone Is so down to earth. We were asked to explain everything we knew about chipotle (I knew the most).. Do your research. The other applicants keep eyeing me because im such a friendly goofy person. I think the interview went really well. I sent the GM a thank you card, thanking her for the opportunity. I am waiting momentarily for an answer from them. They said it will be up to 48 hours. Its been 24. I'm really excited to see where it goes!
