    I worked at Steak n Shake full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Weekend off. Main job is to just clean all night. Guaranteed 40 hrs.

    Cons

    You're the only person running the line plus working drive thru all at once. Can get busy.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Steak n Shake (Mishawaka, IN) in February 2011.

    Interview

    I had to wait for hours and had 3 interviews all asking they same questions. I don't believe management talked to each other. They were the worst interviews that I have ever sat through. The types of questions were not very effective, they did not explain the job that I was going to be doing very well or how much stress the job puts on you.

    Interview Questions

    • My work experience, my life, do I have kids, what I like to do, do i have any rewards and about my attendance.   1 Answer
