    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Granite City.

    The experience is very easy especially if you have worked in the service industry before, preferably at a high volume restaurant. If you have that experience all you have to do is show that and you'll get the job. If you don't you won't.

    Waitstaff Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Troy, MI
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Granite City (Troy, MI) in July 2015.

    Interview

    Interview process at first was long, as you have to complete a pretty in-depth survey, but soon after completion I was contacted and then was hired on the spot. The manager asked me typical questions and didn't go too in-depth as to what I enjoy or what my hobbies are. It was more geared towards what I can bring to the table and how I can benefit the team. Also, I didn't have any experience, so it was necessary to convey my ability to speak well with patrons and express myself as an outgoing, quick learning person.

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Granite City (Franklin, TN) in July 2014.

    Interview

    The interview was really laid back. I first interviewed with the hostess manager who was super friendly and easy going, and then I interviewed with the owner of the store. We just talked about me being vegan and my past work experiences.

    Server & Head Host Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Granite City.

    Interview

    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
