General Manager Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX

Negative Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Chipotle (Houston, TX) in January 2017.

Interview

Very Misleading in many ways. Do not fall for them advertising for a General Manager role as from what I gather, they want everyone to start as a staff member and then move up. I am sorry that is misleading, and a complete waste of most professionals time. I have been in Management for more than 25 years and have very good references and a very solid background. When they called, they wanted to do a quick recruiter interview, followed up by a Skype interview and in the interview, they explained, everyone starts out at about $8.50 an hour.

I ended the interview, I was upset with the process, so please do not mislead people with false job impressions. DONT WASTE PEOPLES TIME

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Chipotle (Cleveland, OH) in July 2015.

    Interview

    First applied as a multi-unit manager, but was referred to become a general manager. Did one phone interview with the company, referred to a local restaurateur. After passing through the second interview, I was into the final interview on location with the general manager and multi-unit manager. Felt that I was qualified for the position and had interviewed well, however, the other candidate was chosen.

    Only downside of it all was the time period. Seemed to take over a month and a half to complete the process and took over three weeks to get a response of whether I was going to be hired on. The whole process can be mentally exhausting to go through.

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Chipotle (Chicago, IL) in February 2015.

    Interview

    It was very hard had five interviews. This don't make sense they had me to do the video interview. OK great past that then two weeks later HR interview on the phone, ok passed that. Then two weeks later interview with recruiter ok great past that. Now interview with area manager three weeks later, now I'm thinking this is it OK great past that. Now she tells me she will let me know in a week after she talk to recuriter. She calls me we need u to go to job fair down town, I'm like really but ok I went. Paid 31.00 to park I figure it's a investment. Now it takes this one person to determine I didn't have the 13 characteristics, really. The other four seem to think so. Luckily I was hired by another company a week later.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Chipotle (Little Rock, AR) in November 2014.

    Interview

    Applied online and quickly recieved a reply with a link to an online interview. Very simple, basic question. You have 2 minutes to answer each question but 30 seconds before to consider your response. No do overs! Would have preferred an actual in person interview.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Chipotle.

    Interview

    I had four interviews consisting of a video interview, phone Interview and 2 face to face interviews with different area managers. In the end I was not offered a position. I am fine with Chipotle's decision to not proceed with the hiring process, but I think that after going through four interviews an email explaining their decision would have been appropriate. I had to check my status online in order to get an update and still didn't receive a response after I emailed the recruiter asking for feedback as to what I could have done better. During the recruiting process Chipotle praised themselves as being very 'laid back'. I think after looking at the situation as a whole some of that transcends to unprofessionalism.

    General Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Richmond, VA

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Chipotle (Richmond, VA).

    Interview

    I had 3 interviews. Video, phone, in person. All communication was done through email. In person interview was with 3 people in a relaxed setting. I prepared very well for these interviews and did quite well. However, none of my preparation and qualifications mattered. Nor did it matter how I answered. Chipotle isn't looking for the best candidate to lead one of their restaurants. They're looking for someone that's young, hip, and cool. This is the reason for their high turn over rate. They have no leadership in their resturaunts.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Chipotle (Asheville, NC) in February 2014.

    Interview

    Submitted a resume and was contacted about doing an online interview, in which you are recorded on your computer. I will say it is a good idea even though I did not get the job but I still would have liked to get in front of a real person. I am sure it allows them to accept more people for the interview process
