    Easy Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    I sent in an online application around midnight and was called the next afternoon around 12. I scheduled an interview and came in around 3. The manager was friendly and outgoing and offered me a drink, and I waited for him for about 5 minutes. When I told him about going to college out of state, he let me know that they weren't hiring seasonally and that he didn't want to waste my time, and told me to tell my friends who were looking to work long term.

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Chipotle (Fort Lauderdale, FL).

    Interview

    Group interview we were split into two. I was in the second group we were told to get to know each other while we sat. When it was our turn the GM came to greet us and asked us about ourselves. Then she asked what we knew about chipotle but no one in my group knew anything I was the only one. The GM was very sweet and told us about the career opportunities and more about the company. The location I applied for doesn't open for another week and a half so I'm waiting. I went to another interview the day before and I was interviewed by crew members they were nice but I didn't get the job, don't know what they were looking for but I was a bit nervous. Within 2 hours I was notified that I didn't get it.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Chipotle (North Hollywood, CA).

    Interview

    It was a group interview with 2 other applicants. As soon as we sat down, the interviewer brought out her clipboard and asked for our names and if we had any past work experience. She wrote our answers and then set the clipboard down. The interview should have ended right there and then as it was obviously the only thing that was taken into consideration. As the interview continued, it was clear she was only asking questions to kill the time. Wasted my time. They could have gotten the information straight from my application.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Chipotle (New York, NY).

    Interview

    I walked in and was told to sit with like seven other people. It was a group interview conducted by the general manager and the apprentice. The kitchen manager was there for a while too. You had to introduce yourself and say why you want to work at Chipotle. They would ask a question and then we would take turns answering it. It was really short (half an hour), the GM seemed impressed by my knowledge of chipotle's background and the terms and the mission statement, no other applicant was familiar with it. I'm honestly surprised that I wasn't asked back for a second interview, maybe they didn't want someone who knew about the company idk. Literally the next day they emailed that they were unable to offer me the job, so you will hear back quickly.

At the end she asked if we had questions for them and when that was done one of the managers said that was it and she would call or email within 24 hours to a week. Also just to add in three of us were 17 and she said there might be a problem with hiring because we can only work certain hours but she would contact us separately.
