    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Granite City.

    Interview

    The experience is very easy especially if you have worked in the service industry before, preferably at a high volume restaurant. If you have that experience all you have to do is show that and you'll get the job. If you don't you won't.

    Interview Questions

    • All of the questions they will ask are about your background, experience in the industry, and your availability. If you're looking for a short-term deal to make some money they won't hire you if they feel like you'll be gone in the next 6 months.   Answer Question
