Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Chipotle (Brownsville, TX) in August 2017.

Interview

Interview went well however they didn't follow up on calling back. I had to call them back the next day to ask about the outcome. Overall I got the job but they don't follow through with what they promise ( base pay, hours. And etc).

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Chipotle in August 2015.

    Interview

    it was different , really cool and the people were friendly the hiring process is a little different because the employees vote on if they want to hire you and not the manager. I ended up quiting though because they worked everyone like slaves for minimum wage including me even though i had a handicap which they didnt seem to care about. if only those illeagles knew that they should be paid way more than what chipotle pays.

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Chipotle (Olathe, KS) in October 2012.

    Interview

    brief but happened to walk in on the day three corporate big shots were there and put on some charm and got hired on the spot. It was a little awkward because of a vibe i was getting from some of the head honchos but it wasnt regarded for me i later came to find out.

    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.

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Chipotle (Mishawaka, IN) in May 2010.

    Interview

    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
