    I worked at Granite City part-time (less than an year)


    This is a place where if you work hard, have patience, and help others, you will be recognized and rewarded. The wages are definitely above market standards, and there are frequent opportunities for growth within the restaurant and the business. The benefits are also a great perk, including medical insurance, paid vacations, and employee discounts (the food and beer here is ridiculously good, you'll want to use them).


    The work here can definitely be very challenging and physically demanding at times especially on nights and weekends. I worked with two dishwashers who claimed they were accustomed to high-volume but by the end of the night they were sorely mistaken. You will need exceptional patience, an agile body, and a bright attitude to work here.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a dayinterviewed 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
