Crew Interview

Application Details

I applied online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Chipotle in August 2013.

Interview Details

Applied online and about 4 days later received an email inviting me to a job fair taking place a few days later. Was interviewed by 3 managers at once with one other person. The questions were pretty basic and we were told more about the position and the company. We were told it was only a screening interview and that we would receive a call later that day. As I was leaving the underground parking garage, I already had a voicemail saying I got the job.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person - interviewed at Chipotle in February 2013.

    Interview Details

    I called to ask if they were hiring and the manager said yes and asked me to come in for an interview that day. After the first interview they wanted me to come back for a 2nd interview were I interviewed with crew members and managers alike.(one of the assistant managers told me I was hired but there has to be 3 interviews). Finally they told me to call next Tuesday to scheduled my 3rd and last interview, I called and the manager wasn't there and they told me to call back the next day which I did, but the manager was still missing. Then that night I got an email saying I wasn't selected for employment... -_-

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Chipotle in January 2013.

    Interview Details

    Applied online and then called in to make sure they received application. Was set up for an interview within a week or so. Had to do two face to face interviews and they were very friendly and just asked me basic questions. Personality has a huge roll in interview. Overall the whole process was pretty quick and painless. Just do not call or come in at peak food times to talk with managers.

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing was difficult or unexpected. Typical interview for pretty much un-skilled labor.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    No negotiation.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Chipotle in April 2013.

    Interview Details

    Applied online at the chipotle website and was sent an e-mail about a month later asking me to go in for a group interview. About 20 other people were present. We were divided into 3 groups where we were all asked 3 questions, took about 30 minutes each. The questions weren't so hard, just go over the website and do some research on food with integrity.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Chipotle in June 2012.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and was called in for a interview 2 days later. I felt comfortable in my interview because the manager was very nice and asked easy questions like why do i want this job, and what would i do if their was a customer complaint.

    Interview Questions
    • My interview had no difficult questions. The manager just asked questions about myself to get a better feel on my work ethic.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I actuallly got the same pay as i asked for. I guess it would always ask for a little more than you think you deserve so incase you have to negotiate it can be more around your range.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Chipotle.

    Interview Details

    First, after filling out an online application, you wait for an email. Most people who meet basic qualifications will receive an email inviting them to a group interview. This waiting period spanned about 2 weeks for me. For the open interview, I sat in a booth with 2 other applicants and two store managers attended. The questions were very basic and cliche, nothing to be worried about. After another week or so, I received a "Congrats!" letter.

    Interview Questions
    • I did not receive any difficult or out of the blue questions; the most ; "difficult" question was "What does 'food with integrity' mean to you?". 2 minutes of research beforehand did the trick   Answer Question

    I applied online. The process took a day - interviewed at Chipotle in January 2013.

    Interview Details

    Store was dirty, staff was gernerally uninterested but pretty, being a hipster will help you get this job. Really doen't matter how much you know about the company, I memorised the entire dolly madison story including how big the first building was, when they opened new locations, read the whole article that inspired steve ells to serve healthy food. Talked at length about new green location and the use of windmills to help power resturants. Bottom line, don't be above 25, and make certain you look good in skinny jeans. Cake on make up. Again don't eat the food, the store was filthy, but the staff is pretty and useless.

    Applied online and got a call a few days later/ Walked in and spoke with two supervisors. Interview started off two on one asking specific questions tailored to my resume/application, then 15 minutes later had a one on one with very generic questions. Very typical laid back interview.
