    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Chipotle (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Applied online, the next day they called for an interview. The interview questions were a little off to me. Nothing about the 13 characteristics or Chipotles vision. I thought it went good but no offer.

    Interview

    Got an email to come in at the time of my choosing. There were 3 other people also waiting as I showed up. They asked about 3 questions and gave each of us a turn. Then they have us write down our full name along with telephone number and our availability. They will only call back or text back who will move on to the next interview. I didn't make it.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Chipotle (New York, NY).

    Interview

    I applied online received an email 2 days later to schedule at interview. I went to the interview, it was a group interview, I was the only female there and the youngest person (I'm 16) I didn't have previous work history and it was my first interview. The manager talked about how he started at Chipotle and about personal things which excluded me out if the conversation because like I said they were all male and older than me (in their late 20's or 30's) which made it hard for me to find something to say, I was confused on what they were talking about.

    Front Line/Cashier Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Chipotle.

    Interview

    My interview started a little while after the store was open so there wasn't that many people. I asked the workers that I was there for an interview and they told me to sit and wait. I waited for around 5 minutes before a worker came out from the back to interview me. They asked me basic interview questions and a lot of questions about myself. After the this interview another worker came and interviewed me. He was a really nice guy and the process was short. I thought it was weird that the workers were questioning me instead of the manager but I let it slide. I didn't get a call back but that's okay.

    Crew Member Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Chipotle (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    I applied online and was called in for an interview 2 days after the phone call. I arrived a few minutes early just to be safe. The interview was with one of the managers and was about 5 minutes long. She asked basic questions. 2 weeks later, I was the one who called to come in for a 2nd interview. This interview was with the manager who interviewed me the last time and the general manager. The questions they asked me were the same as the 1st interview. The general manager told me on the spot that she wanted me to meet the crew so I met the afternoon crew that day (which took an hour). You get to talk to the crew one on one in the kitchen just to get to know them and vice versa. When I was done, the General Manager told me to meet the morning crew on the weekend early morning. I met them and it was the same as the day I met the afternoon crew. Each one of these interviews took about 5 minutes or less.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Chipotle (Virginia Beach, VA) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Make sure you know the history of Chipotle, I would recommend watching youtube videos, going on their website, and even finding other sources prior to your interview. You are hired based on your personality and the manager (and a crew member) will see if you have the "13 traits."

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Chipotle (Alameda, CA) in January 2017.

    Interview

    I showed up to the interview expecting an older manager to interview me, but everyone was very young and full of energy. They sat me down in the restaurant and proceeded with the interview. They asked basic questions and even informed me about things I was not familiar about the company. Such that they reimburse you up to 5,000 in college tuition if you've been a team member for 1 year.
