I worked at Steak n Shake part-time (less than an year)

Pros

The pros are you take home all your tips every night you work.

Cons

Very very disorganization. I kept coming in to take my test after training which they set up and they kept sending me home. Finally got to work and the entire place is a train wreak. Workers were very nasty. If you don't make at least 5 dollars an hour in tips then you get fired.

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

    Pros

    Due to the large turnover of management staff the opportunity for advancement can be very fast.
    Also there are numerous locations that people can transfer to.

    Cons

    Due to a shortage in quality management candidates it is impossible to discipline assistant managers. If a general manager delegates job functions to assistant managers, and they do not complete the job, there is really no recourse given to them. The bonus structure is set in a way that over 50% of the stores in the company did not bonus last quarter.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is a major disconnect between the hourly and management staffs. If the promotional pathway is not fixed then Steak N Shake will not be able to retain or recruit quality individuals.

    Its a decent job, if you fight for the proper training.

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, great employees, good food. Employee discount.

    Cons

    The management can be up in arms, depending who you get. Clearly, they either don't like their job, just lazy, or can be all around rude. Then, some are lovely and pleasant to work with.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve the training, and don't throw employees into a station without properly training them, then fire them for not doing a good job. That is what training is for.
