Crew Member Interview

Interview Details

Applied online and was notified via email to interview about a week later. Group interview consisting of 1 manager, 3 crew members, and 6 interviewees. Interview lasted about 48 minutes.

Interview questions were pretty easy but the whole interview seemed like a complete joke. One crew member was on her phone a couple times during the interview (probably texting). Even worse, the manager picked up a phone call to his cell during the interview and completely disregarded what the applicant was saying. After he hung up he didn't apologize to the applicant and simply said "ok, next person." I know working here requires a fun and enthusiastic personality, but I didn't expect the interview to be such a joke and the manager to be so rude. I've experienced my fair share of interviews and I've never had one like this. Definitely makes me think of the company differently, especially since two of their 13 characteristics are respectful and polite.

Manager notified all interviewees that decisions for the 2nd round would be made by next Monday.

    I applied online – interviewed at Chipotle.

    Interview Details

    I was interviewed with about 4 other people. Overall everything went well, the GM and the apprentice made us feel welcomed and it didn't feel like a waste of time. One thing you should really be able to answer is "what do you know about chipotle?" We were asked that question and literally no one said anything, so I stepped in and told them the history of chipotle which really impressed the GM. We didn't get an offer because we applied for a new store which isn't opening till April.

    The process took a dayinterviewed at Chipotle in March 2015.

    Interview Details

    I was interviewed with 2 other people. They ask a lot of background questions, you need to know the history. It is a bonus to have previous experience. Mangers are cool and easy going. Looking for someone that is motivated and will fit in with the environment.

    It was very informal, but do go into the interview knowing something about the company. They want to understand that you want to be there and not that anybody is forcing you to be there. Be friendly, be energetic and smile.

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Chipotle in March 2015.

    Interview Details

    I submitted an application online and 2 days later received an email to attend an interview. The interview was scheduled the next day after the email was received. The interview started late because we had to wait for the interviewers to be ready. I was interviewed with a group of people. There were 4 applicants being interviewed and 3 employees conducting the interview. Only the manager asked questions while the other 2 just listened. One question was asked and we all took turns answering. It lasted about 20 minutes. We were told at the end of the interview that they would let us the next day if we would be called back for a second interview. They said the second interview would be done by the crew and would be all about Chipotle.
