In the months following Chipotle’s announcement of its plans to hire 500 new employees in the US, the news spread like wildfire.
For anyone who’s worked at Chipotle for the past few years, the company’s announcement was huge.
In addition to hiring 500 new people, Chipotle will also be making the transition to using the same technology to make its restaurants, and many of the same products that customers will be able to order at Chipotas restaurants.
And in a bid to make the transition as smooth as possible, Chipotos new restaurant team is making sure that the process is as seamless as possible.
“We’re doing everything we can to ensure that it’s as smooth and painless as possible,” Chipotle Vice President of Customer Service and Product Development Mike Smith told Business Insider in March.
“We have a lot of folks working on it.
We have a great team working on the new product.”
Smith said that the company has been testing its new process for the last six months, and the company is excited to be able share it with the world.
The process is different than Chipotles traditional hiring process, in that it involves more formal interview interviews and interviews with potential employees in-person.
The new process, however, requires a more casual interview process, according to Smith.
As Smith explained, the goal is to make it as easy as possible for potential employees to get in touch with the company.
“I want to get people on board and talk to them as quickly as possible because we’re going to be opening up a lot more to that process in the coming months,” Smith said.
“If you’re a new hire, you’re going be very nervous about this.
You don’t want to go through the interview process without talking to people.”
In order to make this transition as painless and as smooth for the new employees as possible while still allowing the company to make some business decisions, Smith said that Chipotle is hiring a new VP of Customer Support, who will oversee the process of hiring and hiring and more hiring, according the company .
In an effort to help speed up the hiring process for new employees, Chipos VP of Business Development and Innovation Sam Riggs said that he will be leading the hiring of new employees by providing them with the required documents, and will have them take the required online and telephone interviews with Chipotans HR department, according Fortune.
When asked about the changes, Riggs told Fortune that Chipotats hiring team is working hard to ensure a smooth transition.
“The team at Chipos has been working hard over the last few months to get the process up and running,” Riggs, who has been with Chipotle since 2008, told Fortune.
“As we said, it’s going to take some time, but we’re committed to it.”
Chipotle is one of the most profitable restaurants in the world, and has the potential to bring in a huge amount of revenue in the long run.
But as more and more people are starting to see the food they eat as being healthier, Chipots success is also beginning to become a concern.
According to a recent study, the average American eats more than two to three meals a day that have been found to contain unhealthy ingredients.
To help ease some of the concerns, Chiptos VP and President of Operations Dan Castellanos told Forbes that he is going to have his team working with the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) to find ways to reduce the amount of unhealthy food people are eating.
“We have an ongoing conversation with USDA about making sure they can better serve our customers, and to do that, we’re working with our employees,” Castellanas said.
So, with the fast food giant now offering the most healthful food in the country, is it time to get back to basics?
As far as the Chipotles current plans, it seems that the chain is definitely making a concerted effort to get its new employees to stay in the fold.
“We’ve seen some people who have come back to work after coming back from the fast-food restaurant and say, ‘I love Chipotle, I love Chipotes,'” Smith told Forbes.
“And so, we’ve been working with them to make sure they have the best chance of staying with us.”
The restaurant chain has been known to be one of Americas largest employers in recent years, and with the addition of new workers, Chipota’s workforce is set to grow to about 2,300 employees by the end of the year.
More importantly, Chipotoas newest employees are likely going to help make the company a more viable business, one that can attract and retain talent, and keep the brand thriving.
