    Server & Head Host Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a day - interviewed at Granite City.

    Interview Details

    It was a simple process with basic questions about your experience and as to why you'd be a good fit with the company. I went in for the interview when they were having open interviews because it was a new store. I met with two hiring managers and process went quick.

    Interview Questions
    • I would say most of the questions were expected and there weren't really any to throw you off. The one I'd say that I had to think about just because I couldn't say the answer I obviously wanted to was what was your worst guest experience. Otherwise the questions include employment history, what do you expect out of your manager and so on.   Answer Question

    Server Interview

    Application Details

    The process took 1 week - interviewed at Granite City in November 2011.

    Interview Details

    Applications are handled entirely online, including basic information, resume submission, and a medium-length personality test to determine if I was a good fit for the position. The online portion of the application process took approximately thirty to forty-five minutes. About a week later I was invited to a 1:1 interview with the store manager, during which a few basic questions were asked, mostly relating to work experience and desire to work at that restaurant in particular. I was offered a job on the spot.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 5 days - interviewed at Granite City in March 2011.

    Interview Details

    I went in to fill out an application, brought it back, and was asked to fill out an SQ (like a personality thing) in store. After turning that in, I got a call about 3 days later, and was asked to come in for an interview. It was fairly easy - questions like how would you handle a difficult customer, why do you want to work here - and then I was given a call back for a second interview (with a different manager) and was given the job there. There was a week training after that (paid, and with food), and then I started working.
