    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Steak n Shake.

    Interview

    Process was 4 steps for me. 1st with GM, second panel interview with GM and district manager. Third a phone interview with a human resources talent scout, 4th with vice president of operations. The first 3 were pretty standard, run of the mill interviews. The 4th was very challenging. I was asked questions about my motives, why I left the food industry in the first place, why I wanted to leave my current job, etc. After my 4th interview i had to submit to a background check. I also had to submit professional references. Once all this was completed, I was given an offer letter.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Steak n Shake.

    Interview

    It's a three step process. The first two are in person at a steak and shake. The third one can be a phone interview or in person. The toughest is the second one, once you pass that one your pretty much in.

    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Steak n Shake (Delray Beach, FL) in January 2016.

    Interview

    After waking in and filling in an application, I was called back in two days later for an "interview". However, they didn't ask me any questions, had me fill out some forms, to which I may add they didn't require to fill out completely and then already had me scheduled and in the system for hours and training. I was unaware of this since I hadn't even accepted the job, which I did not.

    Reasons for Declining

    Manager was unimpressive and lack leadership qualities
