    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Steak n Shake in June 2015.

    Interview

    Received a call about two weeks after I applied online. Interviewed first with one of the assistant managers, who was quite open, friendly and honest about the work environment (although he interviewed me for the wrong position!). Thought I would be a great fit and scheduled me for a second interview with the general manager. That interview also went well as we both seemed to connect with interests and common sense values at the workplace. Background check submitted that day, had orientation yesterday, start training today! Despite all the negative reviews I'm reading, I'm looking forward to the experience.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Steak n Shake (Lancaster, OH) in May 2015.

    The interview went well. My manager was professional, he told me what he expected from the employee's. I continue to see areas that need attention, however that does take some time to get everyone to work as a team.

    Food Server Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Steak n Shake.

    Interview

    I walked in, asked for an application and was immediately asked to be "interviewed". It wasn't even an interview. The manager and I sat at a table and talked so he could see if I was competent and personable. I was told there would be a background check and then I would attend training. My store was so disorganized I had to call every day for a few weeks until someone finally submitted my papers and officially got me training. Later, after working there for a year, my manager told me he only hires pretty girls...gross.
