Interview Details – The interview process was a bit like speed dating. They put multiple potential employees in separate rooms while their managers move from room to room spending 5 minutes with each applicant. It is a very casual work environment. I am used to working in a business suit everyday and the individuals interviewing me were wearing jeans and sandals. I waited for 30 min with others being interviewed and felt like I had higher quality interaction with my peers than in the actual interview. It seemed very rushed and unorganized.
Interview Question – Point out on your resume the biggest contributing factor for why you should get hired here. Answer Question

Interview Details –
Two interviews, each an hour long. The initial interview was with half of the Compliance team (roughly 4-5 people), and they asked generic questions.
The second interview was with the other half of the team. After asking me what my idea of a top performer was, one of the managers used the interview as an ego-boosting session for himself. He went on a the minute rant, discussing his accomplishments, and assuring me that he (and his team) were all top performers. After leaving the interview, I did not wish to work for him or with him of "top performers".
Interview Question – When asked what a top performer was, I mentioned that it was a person who added an element of fun to the work environment. The hiring manager told me that if they wanted to have someone fun in the office - they would hire a comedian. Answer Question

Interview Details – I went to a job fair where I was first interviewed. The interview was avg. The manager who interviewed told me he would call me later on that same day to schedule a second interview. However he did not. I think went another Chipotle fair and was interviewed by the store I'd originally wanted. He asked me about my goals, asked me about what I knew about the company and their goals. He wanted motivated people with the 13 characterstics they promote on their website.
Interview Question – The most unexpected question was "list everything you know about this company." I felt that what I knew wasn't enough Answer Question
Negotiation Details – I was offered the job and though I waited long and often during the actual hiring process, it was simple

Declined Offer – Interviewed in Denver, CO Oct 2011 – Reviewed Oct 12, 2011
Interview Details – A total bait and switch! I came in for a "manager" interview and was told that everyone starts on the food line, making $8/hour. The lady told me that with two promotions I could be an assistant manager... so it actually WAS a management position! Looking for work is difficult today, so completely wasting my time and theirs is lame. If you think you're going to a management interview, you might want to just stay home.
Interview Question – Tell me something you're proud of. Answer Question
Reason for Declining – They lied about the position.
