    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Chipotle in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    Initially I filled out my application to Chipotle with confidence as I had heard positive feedback from peers. I was a recent high school graduate and the website states they prefer those with little or no experience. I thought that this was great. When I recieved multiple emails regarding a job fair, I felt so elated. I checked glassdoor so I was prepared for the interview as well as researched the company. When it came to the day of the interview, they had me sit down. The employees gave me the option of using the fountain to quench my thirst. Other people began to come in and they regarded their presence in the same manner. It was finally time for the interview. I felt a little nervous. I didnt annunciate and I fumbled over my words. I didnt evoke that bubbly, upbeat persona they look for in their employees. It was my first interview ever. My advice? Research. Show that youre outgoing and "bubbly" so to speak. I went to another interview in my city. They didnt even bother to write my name down. Calm the nerves, dont act like you have a stick up your butt or you will blow it.

    Marketing Consultant Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Chipotle.

    Interview Details

    The interview is recorded and you send in your submission. The video is reviewed by a third party company and they determine whether your qualities meet the criteria of chipotle. The video is not interactive; you are given 30 seconds to review the interview question, and two minutes to respond. The timer is in the corner and you are looking at yourself in your camera while the video interview is recorded. VERY intimidating. The most frustrating part is because it is a video submission, you never know if your video interview is even looked at. Terrible way to interview!

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Chipotle.

    Interview Details

    I filled out an application online, and within a few days, I got a call and schedule my interview date, the next day. I interviewed with the the assistant manager, she asked pretty basic questions, mostly about myself and job experience (which I had none), and she said she would called me about another interview. Later on that day I got a another call for my 2nd interview. The 2nd interview was with a crew member and pretty much asked me the same questions as the first. I got another call later that day for a 3rd and final interview with the general manger where she just ask my availability and salary, and why I wanted to work there and at the end she said she was going to call me and tell when I would cone in for orientation.

    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    I applied on line and was contacted by email a few days later. When I showed up ,about 10 minutes early, there was one other girl there. They told us to take a seat and wait. Meanwhile more people showed up, two other girls and two guys. So after waiting about 10 minutes past the time when we were supposed to have the interview, the manager and some other guy showed up( he didn't really introduce his position). The had us sign our names on a clip board and then proceeded with a group interview. They asked basic questions like why we wanted to work there, what we know about the history of chipotle, and how we feel working in a fast paced environment. They mostly talked alot about chipotle and their whole philosophy and food with integrity.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Chipotle in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and was contacted about a job fair. I went to the job fair and was interviewed by the kitchen manager in a group of 4. It was an easy interview, just went in a line to answer all the questions. I was called the same day for a second interview. The next day I came in for the interview and it was 4 of us from the job fair. The apprentice manager guy showed us a video and talked about what an employee at Chipotle should have. He gave us each a paper with three essay questions on it and told us to bring it in when we finish it. I brought it in the next day and was told I would be called. Two days later I got a call for a "crew interview" and when I arrived it was me and the girl from the second interview. We talked to the crew for about 45 minutes then left and once again was told we would be called. Two days later, I went into chipotle to eat and one of the girls recognized me from the crew interview and asked if I wanted to speak to the GM. I did and he asked if I would be part time or full time and then I got offered the job.

    Team Member Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Chipotle in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied for Chipotle and received a response via email within a week requesting an interview. There were 5 of us. After researching what to expect from Chipotle interviews, I was expecting a bunch of questions about the company. Rather, the interviewer stood up in front of us and asked us all to tell him about ourselves. Each time someone was talking, he seemed impatient and it made me feel rushed in my answers. He then told us all about Chipotle. I sat and listened to him recite everything I had read online and was prepared to answer to him. In total, he maybe asked us 4 questions. At the end he said, "Well, if that's it, I have another group coming in to interview now." and pretty much rushed us out the door. I didn't expect a call back, nor do I expect anyone else in my group to receive one. My interview was at 8:30am and I received an email at 11:30am telling me I did not receive the job. After sitting through that interview, I am not disappointed.

    Interview Details

    First off this was a waste of time because I've been through 3 interviews... all of this to wrap a damn burrito? they ask you the same questions over and over again then you gotta wait for a email or a call back. I'll never waste my money there again! especially traveling to the city wasting my damn money. When they call and tell you a group interview, its just you by your self BTW.
