I applied online - interviewed at Chipotle in January 2014.
Interview Details – They email you everything. All you have to do is come in and know a lot of chipotle facts and their motto "food with integrity" and you'll be fine.
Interview Question – 13 characteristics Answer Question
Very Easy Interview
I applied online and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Chipotle in March 2014.
Interview Details – I'm new to this area and looking for work, I never heard of Chipotle and I found an online advert they were hiring so I applied. Got a call couple of days later from the GM asking me to come in for an interview and to watch videos on the companies website. Being over 40 with extensive restaurant experience, I was surprised I was picked considering the company prefers young people without experience, but I thought this might be a golden opportunity. Boy was I wrong lol! Turned out to be a group of candidates for one on one interviews and I don't think anyone there was over 20 including the managers, the staff was full of tattoos and piercings. I felt more like I was backstage at a Marilyn Manson concert than a job interview, or I should say "interview" because there was no interview. About 15 minutes of job descriptions, expectations, introductions, then we were taken to tour the facilities. Then they called us individually for our one on one "interview", I was picked first and told right away I was "not Chipotle material"...I wish they had told me that before wasting 45 minutes of my time. They were training other crew members to be managers who were observing and I felt I was chosen as an example of someone not to hire. It left a very poor impression of this restaurant and company on me.
Interview Question – Could you show up at 8am? Answer Question
I applied online - interviewed at Chipotle in February 2014.
Interview Details – I went to the job fair and there was about ten people total including me, the manager told us how he runs the store and what he expects from a person, and also the history of Chipotle itself. We then got asked who inspired us the most and everyone had a turn, and once everyone went, the job fair was over. They told us they would be in contact within 48 hours but I never got an email or a phone call so I called them and they told me that I didn't get a second interview. It was very unprofessional to me that I waited over the time they said they'd be in contact to get nothing and to have to call to see if they declined me.
Interview Question – None really, as they only asked us one question. Answer Question
I applied online and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Chipotle in February 2014.
Interview Details – I applied online on a Thursday and received an email on Tuesday saying to come in for an interview. This was my very first interview so i was very nervous but the manager was really cool, down to earth, and really fun; so that relaxed me. He asked basic questions. Why Chipotle? What do you have to bring to our team? He also asked a lot about me. Such as "Tell me about yourself." Do some research on their website and a very energetic attitude and you will do fine.
Interview Question – What would be the hardest part of working here if we hired you on the spot right now? Answer Question
I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Chipotle in February 2014.
Interview Details – The ratio was 3 candidates to one manager during the interview. They made me feel like I gotten the job. He called me in for a second interview. He asked me my availability. My friend got hired on the spot but I didn't. They told me I would hear back within a day or so and nothing. I went in 3 days later and the manager just told me he was going to look for another candidate. Don't feel like you got the job just by the way the talk to you in the interview.
Interview Question – What is empowerment? What is a sense of urgency? Answer Question
Interviewed at Chipotle
Interview Details – Very focused on the company culture and willingness to work in a team
Interview Question – What does food with integrity mean to you? Answer Question
I applied in-person and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Chipotle in August 2010.
Interview Details – They have open interviews usually. I came in a few times after submitting an application online to check on my application and see if there was anything else I needed to do. They interviewed me on the spot, then asked me to come in a couple days later for another interview (which was basically the same thing). It wasn't difficult or unexpected and I knew what I was getting myself into.
Interview Question – Not many difficult questions. Why Chipotle? What is food with integrity to you? What is the first thing you notice about every Chipotle you walk into? Answer Question

Interview Details – First interview was with other crew members/ maybe asst managers. They called me back in for another interview within days. Offered the position on the spot. .

I applied online and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Chipotle.
Interview Details – Applied online, got a call for an interview the same day. Came in for interviews twice (the first was a group interview, and the second was one-on-one), and was offered the job on the second interview.
Interview Question – There were no tricky questions. You just have to keep their "13 characteristics" and "food with integrity" stuff in mind when answering them. Answer Question
I applied online and interviewed at Chipotle.
Interview Details – Put in an application and was called about two weeks later for an interview. Went in and spoke with two managers on my first interview and was told to come back the next day to finish up, as apparently I had to interview with all five of the managers there. Both interviews went very well I thought, but the second interview was only with one manager who said she'd give me a call about the job when she was done. I thought this was a good sign as I'd done very well in both interviews, had dressed well, and knew a bit about the company.
After not hearing anything for two or three days I called back and was told by one of the managers that I didn't receive the job with no explanation why. Days later I received an email telling me the same thing, which led me to believe that if I had not called and asked, they would not have called me and just emailed me instead. I found that to be very unprofessional. At least I got two free drinks out of the deal. Will never apply for a position with the company again.
Interview Question – They make sure to ask you what you know about the company, so take half an hour or so before your interview to read up as much as you can on their web site. Answer Question
