    Crew Member Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Chipotle (Federal Way, WA) in July 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online and about two days later I got an email saying that I had an interview the very next day. So I was glad that was quick but when I got to the interview I didn't know it was going to be a group one. It was awkward for me and for the rest of the people who were getting interview. So as it went along the manager who was interviewing us didn't ask us any questions about the company just about are hobbies and goals. He was kind of rude to you if you had a goal he didn't like so I was glad to get an email a couple hours later saying that I didn't get the job.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Chipotle (Addison, IL) in July 2015.

    Interview

    Applied online and received a call a couple days later to schedule an interview. Arrived a little early, went up to the register and introduced myself and told them I was there for an interview. They gave me a cup for a drink and asked me to take a seat. I waited a bit for the manager(?) and she came in and sat at the table with me. She didn't seem very interested in interviewing me. She lacked the enthusiasm I was expecting and barely made eye contact with me. Didn't write anything down, just played with her pen the entire time.

    Crew Member Interview

    Anonymous Employee in North Las Vegas, NV

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Chipotle (North Las Vegas, NV) in July 2015.

    Interview

    The interview was casual and simple. It took 5-6 days for the company to reach me back through email. The email invited me to a job fair which really was a collection of 4-5 job seekers who are interviewed one at a time for 30 minutes in-store. The questions were generally related to finding more information about the potential employee and reasons as to why you would want to work there. The interesting about this experience was that apparently you have to be 18 to work there and I am only 16!

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Chipotle (Industry, CA) in July 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online and was emailed about 3 days later to come in the store at an appointed date and time for an interview. It was actually a group interview with three other people who applied and the manager and one of the employees were there conducting it. They were overall nice and friendly and asked us to tell them more about ourselves before we got into the actual interview questions. The interview took about an hour since we all took turns answering the questions. They sent an email later on at the same day to determine whether you'll be given a second interview or a rejection email.

    Crew Member Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I interviewed at Chipotle (New York, NY) in July 2015.

    Interview

    This interview was for the Chipotle at 129 W 48th St, it's actually between 6th and Broadway and I had the hardest time finding it. My interview was for 10:45 a.m. but I arrived at 10:30, and we didn't start until maybe 10:50. It honestly was a waste of time because to work at this chipotle you need to be 18 because of the liquor license they have. Besides that, the workers were nice and so were the two crew members who interviewed me.

    Interview

    I applied for the crew member position online and received an email within a few days asking me to come in for an interview. It was a group interview with the managers.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Chipotle (Las Vegas, NV) in July 2015.

    Interview

    I applied for a new location. My first interview what with a nice lady that interviewed us two at a time (thankfully my "partner" was nice) and my second interview was with who Im guessing is the location's manager and someone else. They were both pretty nice. They asked same/similar questions as the ones from my first interview and even asked about the interview if the lady had told me any info about the company. I was told i would be called to be offered a job or to go in for third interview. Unfortunately, I was called for ANOTHER interview while i was on the road to another state and by the time I would be back the training would have started.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Chipotle in July 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process at Chipotle was... Interesting. So I was called for an interview a few days after I applied online. I came in, and it was a group interview like most people on this site mentioned. The interview lasted 10 minutes tops and they only asked 2 questions. Later that day, they called me again and told me that they wanted to schedule another interview. So I came in and much to my surprise it was another group interview, but this time with a different manager (the kitchen manager). It was literally the same interview I had the first time. The same two questions and the same time frame. So the next day they call me back again and say they want to schedule another interview. This one was much more chill, one on one, and the manager was very laid back and easy to talk to. Then he brought out the general manager to meet me and she asked me the same questions as well. The questions were very repetitive but I answered it as consistently and to the best of my ability. So I drove home, and right when I got to my front door, I got an email saying that they were unable to offer me the job..... I definitely feel like I didn't do that horribly during the interview, but oh well

    Interview

    I applied online through snag a job, then about one week later I got a phone call during which I was asked to come in that day at 4pm for a interview with the manager of the location I applied to. I dressed casually in a white shirt, black dress pants, and dress shoes. The interview I felt went very well I was interviewed with another girl and I am waiting to be emailed or called for a second interview. I would love to work at chipotle so I am crossing my fingers I get a second interview and am hired!
