I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Chipotle (Columbus, OH) in May 2015.
Applied online and was called in for an interview 20 minutes later for the next day. When I showed up to the interview I was asked to sit and wait and they gave me a free drink. Finally after 10 minutes of my scheduled time, the manager came out and questioned me. Then he told me he would pull my application and get in contact with me.

I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Chipotle (Columbus, OH) in November 2014.
The longest and most drawn out interview. Applied in October of 2014. Started my first of six interviews in November 2014, completed my sixth final interview in January 2015. The interview questions are all very simple. During the six interviews I spoke with a total of 13 people. On the final interview, I was asked all the same questions. Three days later I got an email that they loved me, but went with another candidate that had more experience in the industry. They could have got that from our initial resume submission, and not wasted my time. One interview was in Chicago. They paid for my flight, told me to pay for my commute (taxi) to and from airport, and save receipts as they would reimburse. Once they did decided to move forward with the other candidate, I asked how they wanted me to send receipts for reimbursement. No further returned emails from chipotle. They talk about a great culture, but do not appear to honor that culture.

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Chipotle (Columbus, OH) in July 2014.
They ask you about Chipotle's history, some of your history (education, hobbies, so on), your goals. Normal stuff. Interviewing process is a bit more complicated than it should be, which is why I didn't pursue it. First you interview with 2 manager personnel, then again, and then lastly with the whole crew so they all can decide. I couldn't afford the gas to go there three times without a guarantee. However, they're very nice.

I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Chipotle (Columbus, OH) in April 2014.
The interview process was very intense. I was interviewed three separate times before I began work. During the third time, every crew member that was in the restaurant at that time talked to me. They want to be sure you will get along with their current employees. I also spoke with the GM and the GM Apprentice twice. Their questions were very involved and they seemed truly enthusiastic in finding out who I am as a person. It was a tough process, but it was not stressful since my interviewers made me feel comfortable.

I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Chipotle (Columbus, OH) in April 2013.
So I applied online at the beginning of April and got called for an interview at the beginning of March. The place is like 2 blocks away from my house so that's awesome since I can walk. I met with the store manager, he was nice. He asked me why Chipotle, then asked what my personality was like. He then asked how would my friends and family describe me and how I was doing in school. He asked what I wanted to be paid, I asked for .75 above minimum wage and he agreed. He then asked me to describe myself one last time, I think to see if I had the 13 characteristics. He said I did good and to come back tomorrow to meet with the restauranteer guy. The process lasted 5 minutes. The next morning I had to call and ask if the time could be pushed back because I had a group project to do on campus and the group members were very last minute. I got there 30 minutes after my requested time and thought for sure I would not get the job. The restauranteer was awesome, he asked me about my personality then asked what I was studying in school. I told him my majors then explained about how I wanted to go to law school and eventually own a sneaker boutique. We talked about running a business and my previous work experience. He then asked how I liked my hometown and we talked about the scenery there and how rough it's getting, Chiraq, as it is now called. He then went to the back, talked to the store manager and I was hired. Process took 30 minutes only because it was casual conversation. I did ask him what a restauranteer actually does, how much he made, how long he has been with the company and what did he start as.
- what is your personality like? Literally I repeated myself 10 times, then told them I guess that was a part of my personality. I was kind of nervous about that question. Answer Question
If they ask you how much you want to be paid, throw a number out there. I was skeptical and the store manager encouraged me to make my own rate.

I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Chipotle (Columbus, OH) in March 2013.
interviewed once, started work 2 months later because they forget about me, i had to call gm everyday till she finally call me back. After she finally interviewed me i came in while they were opening and had to meet the crew and tell them why they should hire me! The Crew makes the decision if someone should be hired. Crew also has the power to fire!

The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Chipotle (Marysville, OH) in May 2012.
The interviewer only asked me a few questions and talked much about himself. It only lasted a few minutes and seemed very focused on my ability to carry on the conversation.
