    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Chipotle (San Francisco, CA).

    Interview

    I applied online and received an e-mail a few days later. I came in 10 minutes early for an interview on a Wednesday at 2:00 and told the cashier I had an interview. They asked me to sit down and gave me a drink while I waited. A crew member came out and interviewed me. Typical interview questions. He scheduled a second interview with the general manager for next week. Similar questions, and I was hired on the spot that day with the GM. Orientation was the week after.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Chipotle (San Francisco, CA) in November 2014.

    Interview

    I submitted an application online on the 9th and received an email within two days to come in for a group interview on the 15th. I met was interviewed along with a group of 3 other people by the apprentice general manager and a fellow staff member. Halfway through the interview, another girl arrived late but was denied any chance at being hired that day because of her tardiness. We were asked from left to right the same questions and answered accordingly. At the end of the interview, the staff convened to discuss about us prospective members for a few minutes. Soon after, each of us interviewees were called in individually. I was called in last and, to my surprise, was offered a position on the spot.

    Orientation came on the 18th where I had brief interactions with each member working that day.

    The staff were amazing at communicating and weren't too uptight about the ship they ran in terms of strict behavior. Overall a very pleasant and laid-back experience. In conclusion, I'd warn anybody who legitimately looking for a future in Chipotle to STUDY, STUDY and last but absolutely not least STUDY. You will be asked about what you know about Chipotle and you definitely want to impress. Maintain composure and above all be confident in yourself.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Chipotle (San Francisco, CA) in October 2013.

    Interview

    The first interview was very informal. He wore a basic collard shirt and faded jeans and it was held in the McDonalds next to the Chipotle restaurant. I accidentally showed up 30 minutes early and the hiring manager agreed to let me join the earlier interview. The questions he asked were pretty basic, "Why do you want to work for us?" "What do you know about Chipotle?" He also asked "If you had more time on your hands what would you do with it?" and "If your best friend could describe you in one word what would it be?"

    Interview Questions

    • During the second interview process the most difficult question they asked me was, "Where do I see myself ten years from now?" This was difficult for me because I don't like to see look too far into the future and I live life step by step.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    It was a minimum wage paying job and they gave me more hours than I had requested.
