    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
