    Pros

    The best thing about working for Steak n Shake are the opportunities for growth within the company.

    Cons

    Staff is overworked. Servers are expected to do the job of server, host, cashier, busser and food runner. New staff members are not allowed to work more than 28 hours a week. The pay is low, uniforms outdated and

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Push for an employee to cover each station instead of overworking your employees.

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

    Pros

    Good money for high school student, got to take home tips every night, easy to bond with coworkers, 40% discount on food

    Cons

    Management doesn't know how to schedule and you will never work the hours that you are told you will work. Managers are very inconsistent and communication is terrible between the different managers and supervisors. Also you will end up working late into the night if you are in second shift because it is a 24 hour restaurant and sometimes big rushes come in and you will not be allowed to leave. Good luck having a personal life along with work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire enough people to cover a schedule. There were constantly not enough workers to fill the schedule and people constantly had to stay hours past the time that they were scheduled. Also, when I personally asked not to be scheduled during the week, the only times I ended up being scheduled were during the week. Terrible scheduling.
