    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Steak n Shake in August 2013.

    Interview

    Was contacted by a head hunter, had my application on line. They offered me a lower position then I was currently working, but a higher pay rate. All questions typical; work history, willingness to transfer, why was I willing to make a career change, best/worst experiences, etc. Two phone calls with head hunter, two with district manager, one formal interview, and a real job preview. Number of phone calls were based on my working 6-7 days a week at my previous employer. Received $1000 more than I asked for. Back ground check and drug check. Approximately 2 weeks from first call to job offer (my schedule restrictions were a big part of this delay). Started 2 weeks later on my first availability date.

    Negotiation

    The formal application had a place for a salary range. I received $1000 more than I asked for without negotiations.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Steak n Shake (Sunrise, FL).

    Interview

    It started very good, upbeat a lot of information and facts exchanged both ways,at the phone interview and also with the district manager in person.
    But then the breakdown occurred when there was the 3rd interview by phone with the VP of Operations. Everything came down to a screeching halt.
