    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Chipotle.

    Interview Details

    Applied online. Got a notification for an interview about a week or so after sending the application in online. It was a group interview with two other people. Most of the questions were to see if we were a good fit for the company and work environment. Typical interview questions such as why do you want to work here. Study up on some of the company's history.

    I applied online. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Chipotle.

    Interview Details

    Group interveiw. wrote our names and number on a piece of paper, she asked five simple interveiw questions. I was the only one who knew history of the company and asked questions trying to be engaged in conversation. I was being very positive and "upbeat". She said she would check our application for availability, and we would get a call if we got it and a email if we didn't get it. I was emailed 3 hours later that I didn't get the job. I'm only 16 and I'm assuming it's because I'm not available enough. So just make sure you have a good attitude and be very available.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Chipotle.

    Interview Details

    After applying online I received a call asking me to come to the location I would be hired at for an interview. My first interview was individual. I met a variety of team members, starting with the hiring managers. They asked about my experience. Whether or not you have experience, the process is to determine if you will be a good fit for the team. If you can come across as personable and energetic you have a good chance at being trained. They are looking for you to display that you are amicable/easy to get along with (the workspace is small) and at the same time that you will respect the employees and customers. As in any interview, they ask about your problem solving skills/experience quite a bit. Afterwards, when I was given time to spend with other crew members, only one of them asked me work related questions. I took the opportunity to be polite and ask the others how long they had worked there and how they liked it. I was asked for a second interview which was with a group. It's important to be polite to the other candidates, but make sure you are able to add something relative to the discussion, even if you have no experience, you can speak from being a customer at any fast food restaurant.

    Interview Details

    They contacted me asking me to do a video interview, so I spent the morning researching the company, policies, past questions etc.

    The video interview consisted of only 3 questions, none of which related to the company.

    They emailed me almost a month later saying that my experience and qualifications weren't appropriate fur the position - if this was the case then why o why did you waste my time with this stupid video interview???

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Chipotle.

    Interview Details

    I received an email for an interview and a week after that interview I called to follow up. The general manager said she forgot to call me but wanted to do a second interview so I went. A week after that interview I called to follow up again and received yet another interview, all by different managers. At the end of the third interview they told me that the final interview would be by the general manager and that I should receive a call back later today or tomorrow. After three days I decided to follow up myself, yet again, and received the response of "Oh I forgot to ask the other manager about you call back at 4". I call back and am told that the general manager had just left and that my message would be relayed to her and that she would get back to me later today or the next morning. I found it highly unprofessional and a huge bother. I won't be following up anymore even though I really wanted to work there. I don't really understand why four interviews is required to wrap burritos part-time, and then being put off like that.
