    Anonymous Employee in Port St Lucie, FL
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Chipotle in January 2015.

    Interview Details

    I originally applied online and then one day Chipotle sent me an email saying that there was a a job fair to be had there. I go and then had to interview with two other people. The interview wasn't bad at all and I got the opportunity to get a second interview. The second interview was one on one with the manager there, I thought that I did pretty well. even though I believe I used "umm" and "you know" too much

    Crew Member Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at Chipotle in January 2015.

    Interview Details

    Went through a month long process with 3 interviews. The first was a group interview, the second was one on one where I was taken to the back of the store to meet their crew and was told I was going to be hired right then, but then was offered another interview. They waited a week to call after being told I was going to get a call the next morning. During that interview I was taken to the back and was originally spoken to by the apprentice as he was washing dishes. I was back there being splashed by dish water then repeated being passed off to other crew members, many of which were unaware that was going to happen. That interview was not well done and made them look very unprofessional. No one I spoke to had questions prepared. I was later informed by e-mail that I did not get the job. The whole process was extremely time-consuming and not well done.

    Crew Member Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Palm Desert, CA
    Anonymous Employee in Palm Desert, CA
    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.

    Crew Member Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Chipotle in December 2014.

    Interview Details

    I filled out an application online and a couple days later I had an email asking me to come in on 12/18 at 9am. After reading other reviews on here I was expecting the group interview but I wasn't expecting the process to take two hours. I arrived about 10 minutes early to make sure I wasn't late, but the assistant manager didn't even come out to say hello until about 9:40. He took 3 people to another area and questioned them for about an hour while the rest of us waited. He came back and took another group of us and began our interview. Of the twenty or so minutes we spent with him, 15 of it was him talking. I felt like I was at a sales convention for Chipotle. He had nothing but good things to say about it, which is great, but I was already sold on the idea of working for them. Hence I applied and attended the interview. He asked us a total of five questions in between his ramblings and ended the interview.

    Leadership Development Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Sacramento, CA
    Anonymous Employee in Sacramento, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Chipotle in December 2014.

    Interview Details

    I had an interview request before Christmas 2014. I was supposed to use HIREVUE. Anyway, my phone did not work with the app and the recruiter agreed to a phone a phone interview. The phone interview went well than I received an email for a Skype interview. The interviewer changed there mind and the next day they wanted Google Chat. I said fine. I went out and bought a camera to use on a desktop. I thought it went well and I received a " we will be in touch soon" after my thank you letter. They said the process would entail a 3rd, 4th and 5th interview. They never called or emailed on my status check. Warning to others, Chipotle lacks" intergerity" when it comes to responding to people. At least do the right thing and don't string along applicants and be professional and treat applicants with respect. Maybe the food has integrity but not the hiring process. Apply at your discretion.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Chipotle in December 2014.

    Interview Details

    Very, very, very easy. Apply online. Get an email a day later saying come in at 9:30 AM, during school, so I called them to change. Manager said "Sure, come in at 4:30 tomorrow". I came in. Never got a call back. I called them, the manager said "Come in for your second interview at 4:15 today." I went there, and the interviewer said I'd get an email. Never got an email. Called them again. They said "Come in for your third interview tomorrow at 3:30." I went there and I was greeted by the manager that said "You have to be 18 to work here." This inidcates that they NEVER TOOK A LOOK AT MY APPLICATION. They wasted my time, and after that, the manager had the guts to ask me if I wanted food, on them.

    Interview Details

    Two interviews in one day. Interviewed by everyone on the clock the next day. Thought it went good, I thought it was a very friendly work environment. Only con was, being interviewed by the entire staff. They were still tending to their work stations so I feel like I was paid very little attention.
