Positive Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Steak n Shake (Collinsville, IL) in November 2016.

Interview

Easy interview. I was interviewed for the general manager, and she just asked me a few simple questions and had a short chat with me about my hobbies, and explained to me that they really needed good employees who would treat customers with respect. Interview took about 5 minutes.

I got hired on the spot as a drive thru operator because she thought I had a clear loud voice.

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Steak n Shake (Snellville, GA) in August 2016.

    Interview

    Interview was held during the lunch time and was very short and simple. The manager came over and the process began. I dressed business casual and brought my resume with me, but she didn't look at it. Over all it was a pleasant interview quick and friendly.

    Interview

    They had me wait by the door for 15 minutes until a manager became available to interview me. They had the GM monitoring the manager who was interviewing me as it was his first time. They asked very basic questions, my availability and hired me on the spot.

    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

    I applied in-person. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Steak n Shake in October 2015.

    Interview

    I applied and got called the very same day. The manager had me come in the next day to interview. Then I had to come back the next day for an interview with the store manager. Very basic interviews, no hard on the spot questions like most big companies. Didnt get paid for orientation, and started at minimum wage in the drive thru, when i have 5+ years experience in fast food.

    Negotiation

    No negotiation, minimum wage.

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Steak n Shake.

    Interview

    The process only took a couple of weeks. The interview focused more on what I wanted to do with my future since it was only a part-time job. We also discussed how working as a server could benefit my future professional and academic career. They were mainly making sure I had the ability to communicate and would be able to perform a job such as serving.

    Interview

    I applied online and I got a call back the next day to come in for an interview. The manager told me that if I wanted to work for them that I had to change my hair color. Got a call back two weeks later for a second interview, in that interview she told me that she lost my paperwork or she would have hired me sooner. She offered me a fountain operator position, and I accepted. I called for the next whole week to try to figure out when I needed to come in, finally was told to come in the next day. No training at all. You're basically on your own.

    -My education
    -How much I would be getting paid
    -The tasks I would have to learn

    The second interview was more on teaching me what was on the menu & filling out paperwork.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Steak n Shake (Miami, FL) in June 2014.

    Interview

    I walked in one day and asked for an application to the lady working the cash register. She gave it to me and told me to come back in two days at 4 o'clock and turn it in (that was when the manager would be there). I came back and he told me he would be interviewing people next week on a Tuesday. I came in and there were about 8 people, all teenagers including myself. We were waiting in a little area, and across the room was the interviewer in one table, and the manager in the other. We would go one by one. When it was my turn, the interviewer asked simple questions. Why would you like to work with us, when are you available, tell us about yourself. Then we had to go to the manager and he told me about the uniform, and to sign a background check, and that he would call me in a couple days for orientation. Unfortunately, the call never came and I called, asking what happened. I qualified, but they did not have any spots available at the moment. I was so upset.
