Took way too long to get hired but the interviews were ideal for finding out about a person and getting to know if they're capable for the job. All in all its a good process

I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Chipotle (Newark, DE) in March 2011.
Met with the GM and the District manager at an off site location, because the store was being opened. Ask me general questions about what my favorite food at Chipotle was, why I wanted to work there, what could I offer to Chipotle through my employment there, etc.
I was hired as a line cook and after 5 months of training in each station, was finally moved to Kitchen Manager. This is 4 months after the date that they promised me. I was started with a base pay of 8.50/hr and when I was promoted given 11.50/hr.

The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Chipotle (Mishawaka, IN) in May 2010.
This is a scam they put on a hiring website that they are looking for restaurant managers. I had an interview believing I was interviewing for that position, turns out they promote only from within so I was interviewing for an $8 an hour job. The interviewing manager had no clue how to do an interview for even a crew member so that was a nightmare. I would recommend serious training for assistant managers to do effective interviews
- they ask if you have eaten there before 1 Answer
