    I applied online. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Chipotle in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online which was a really easy process and received an email for interview a few days later. Went in for an interview at 3:30 PM and waited 40 minutes before a crew member arrived to interview. Interview was easy with only 3 questions asked, and then they informed me they have no positions open and will call me if that changes. I noticed they were conducting an interview with another person as I arrived, so they probably gave the opening to them.

    Interview Details

    I applied online with in a couple of weeks I received email for the interview. When I arrived I asked for the interviewer I waited for about ten to fifteen minutes until she arrived. During the interview she wasn't really paying to anything I answer or was talking to the other employees. Overall I wasn't pleased and felt that it was a waste of both of our time.

    Group Interview was good. Asked mostly questions about the company, why I want to work there, and about my previous work experience. Very calm and warm environment. I liked the employees. I was called that night for a second interview. Second interview was more personal. Got to meet manager and more workers. Im now waiting for a call to know if i got the job.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Chipotle in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and was called in for a interview a week later. My interview was at 8am and when I walked in there was other people there was of course I knew off the back that it was a group interview. It was to supervisors interviewing us. After they asked as questions and we asked them questions they told us they would call us back later for a second interview. Which is kinda stupid because it's not like we're being interviewed to be Bill Gates or Barack Obama's assistants. And last thing they ask a lot of questions. But not nothing difficult that you can't answer. Good Luck....

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

    Interview Details

    I filled out an application on their website and recieved an email asking me to come in for an interview not even two days later. I came in for the interview and the km and gm seemed really interested and asked me to come back in for a 2nd interview.. When I came back the gm didn't even see me and I just interviewed with a regular crew member.. Who didn't even know that I had came in for the first interview.. He talked to me for not even 5 minutes and asked me to come back the next day to have an interview with the whole crew.. (i was kind of upset because this location is downtown and i had to pay for parking and of course since i was looking for a job im broke and finding the money for parking is hard, but i looked past it and kept a smile on my face because i love this company) i came back for my third review and all of the crew was using curse words and talking about the club they went to the night before and complaining about customers and having to work on halloween. when i tried to bring up 13 characteristics of chipotle i was interrupted and ignored. I was told that id be receiving an email whether i got the job or not. never received the email and when i called was declined the job.. The reason was because the crew didnt like me. They were very unprofessional the whole time and copped an attitude when i didnt join in on the negativity. I spent over 20 dollars on parking just to get denied the job. Not to mention this location is dirty. Every interview I came into the tables were dirty. I also have chipotle experience. i worked at a chipotle in austin tx before moving to indiana so i am very educated on the company and i know that in the middle of the afternoon all of the tables should be spot less at all times because you are not busy. I love the company and what they stand for but i do not recommend this location.
