Chipotle getting there 1

Want to work for Chipotle Mexican Grill or know someone who might? Today is “Open Interview Day.” From 8-10 a.m. and 2-4 p.m., Chipotle is looking to fill part-time and full-time positions at all of its Texas restaurants, including the location in Lakewood.

Chipotle has developed a list of 13 characteristics to describe its top-performing candidates: ambitious, happy, smart, polite, respectful, honest, conscientious, presentable, curious, motivated, hospitable, high energy and infectiously enthusiastic.

If that sounds like you, go to the Chipotle in Lakewood at Gaston and Abrams or the location at Central and Southwestern to complete an application in-restaurant. Or you can submit an application using Chipotle’s new mobile job application app from a mobile device or tablet, or enter an application online, and then drop by the restaurants to request an interview with a manager.

As a perk, nearly all the company’s restaurant leaders are promoted from within its crew. Check out Chipotle’s Restaurateur program, which has dozens of top-performing managers earning six-figure salaries.
