    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Chipotle.

    Interview

    Applied online and took about three days to hear back from the company. Didn't get an interview by a manager but rather an employee, who was also about 5 minutes late to the interview. The employee gave the interview in literally 5 minutes and when i emailed back about the job two days later i did not get an answer for another two days, which was a no in the end.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Chipotle (Cape Coral, FL) in August 2017.

    Interview

    Went really well, I called to check the status of my application and was told to come in for an interview and they apologized that they were not checking if applications were submitted. Went in and told them that I was there for an interview. Was told to sit and wait, was asked if I wanted a drink while I wait, I declined. The GM comes out and asked me questions to get to know me. I recommend studying and learning a little about chipotle and their 13 characteristics they look for while interviewing you. The GM told me he liked me and I would receive a call later on which I am waiting for at the moment.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Chipotle (Redlands, CA) in August 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process was long but nice. I applied online and about an hour later I received an email telling me to come in for an in person interview in 5 days. 5 days later I got there about 10 minutes earlier and brought my resume along with dressing up in slacks, a blouse and nice flats (I am a woman) . The manager greeted me and told me to go wait at a table, they were kind of busy. Around 2, which was my interview time, he got me and 3 other people and brought us to a big round table inside of the restaurant so it was pretty loud. We all just went in order of who arrived first to last. First he introduced himself as the general manager and then in order we told him a little about ourselves. After that he asked us what we know about the company and I've done my research so I was pretty much the only one who said things because I listed everything and he was impressed and the other candidates were intimidated. After that he asked us about our hobbies, things that motivate us and after that he told us that it's not an easy job and you're going to have opportunities to move up in the company. Lasted about 30 mins. He told us that he only had one more position open and that if we dont get the job we will receive an email and if we did get the job he would call us on the phone and offer the position on the phone.
    * Good tips for your interview is definitely to do a ton of research about chipotle, bring your resume and they also look for 13 characteristics ( you can look those up online).

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Chipotle in August 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online, was offered an interview via email three days later, when I arrived it turned out to be a group interview. The interview was taken outside and there was construction that day so it was hard to hear everyone. The process was a bit too laid back for my taste, felt like it didn't matter what answers we gave.
