    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Steak n Shake (Sanford, FL).

    Interview

    I applied for server but was offered dresser instead. First I called to let then know I applied and had a mini interview over the phone and at the interview besides the why work here question it was all review from the phone call. It was a very simple interview, he made kind of casual conversation so it wasn't tense like most interviews. He also offered it to me in the spot, told me how much I'm getting paid which could change and I had an orientation @ 3 on Tuesday. Questions were personal questions like when you can work and if you have any conflicting activities like school or anything like that. He gave me the vision and mission statement to remember which isn't hard at all, took me 2 days and an acceptance letter with the dress code on the back, you need that at orientation though.

    He said how would feel about being a dresser (since I make sandwiches at my other job).

    Server/Waitress Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Nashville, TN
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Steak n Shake (Nashville, TN) in June 2016.

    Interview

    The interview was very quick and straight forward. They asked just basic questions but they were in much more of a hurry to get back to whatever they were doing instead of really being informative about the position. She wasn't detailed and just wanted the hole thing to be over with. They were looking to hire on the spot and didn't ask many questions that really mattered. Just basic name, age, work experience.

    Interview Questions

    • Do you have an open schedule   Answer Question
    • If I was willing to work nights   Answer Question
    • They asked very passively about my religion (I found out later that the manager who hired me asks that and has gotten into a lot of trouble about it)   1 Answer

    Server/Waitress Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Bartlett, TN
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at Steak n Shake (Bartlett, TN) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Very quick and easy. Basic questions about why you want the job, your experience, and when you can start. You really don't have to have any previous experience as they hire a lot of people in highschool/college (and anyone else they can get). You will most likely be interviewed by the store managers. If the managers are rude right off the bat, take that as a sign that you shouldn't work for them.
