Fast-food chain Chipotle Mexican Grill is looking to hire 4,000 new employees -- all in a single day!

The company announced Monday that it will hold its first ever National Career Day on Sept. 9. Management teams are expected to hold job interviews at all of Chipotle's U.S. locations.

Chipotle says it is opening more restaurants, but seeing smaller numbers of job applicants. It's planning on opening about 200 new stores in the next year.

On its website, it touted promoting more than 10,000 of its employees into management roles.
