Chipotle finds mobile job-application function to be a hit

One of every five applicants for a job at Chipotle Mexican Grill now put their names in contention via an app on their mobile phones or tablets, the chain disclosed today

The app, introduced in early October, drew 5,000 applications during the first week it was available, Chipotle said. It can be used on any operating system. Information about the candidate can be pulled from a LinkedIn profile.

Applicants can apply for any open job, including headquarters or support positions. A location function steers applicants toward openings in stores close to them.

“To get the very best applicants, it’s important to be accessible using the platforms that people are using. Increasingly, that means mobile,” said Chipotle co-CEO Monty Moran.
