    I have been working at Steak n Shake part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Everyone was very friendly. They were very flexible in giving me whatever day off that I wanted off. They were very flexible in creating my schedule around my schooling and other scheduling needs. I worked multiple locations, and at each one the management always treated people fairly. Most treated every employee as a friend.

    Cons

    It's fast food. There are usually only 3-4 people on production, so you have to work fast to keep up. I came home smelling like mustard or pickles every night. Weeks when coupons were issued were VERY busy: non-stop fast-paced working your entire shift. (Minimum wage, but of course that is to be expected)

    Pros

    Your regular customers. The people who work with you. You're all in "hell" together, so you can form some amazing bonds.

    Cons

    You don't get paid enough for the job you do. They always try to run shifts with the least amount of people to save on labor. Management doesn't seem to appreciate the work you do. Nothing is ever good enough. Expectations are ridiculous and they don't train people correctly. They only care about the bottom dollar. Corporate is always trying to find ways to save money and the people who lose are the customers and the employees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train your employees. Treat your employees with respect and dignity. Look at your employees as people, not expendable, exploitable numbers.
