I worked at Steak n Shake full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

The company kept me at work so often, that I barely had the opportunity to save money. When I started to go back to school, they worked with my schedule for a month, and then started throwing me on 3rd and 2nd shift, while I had a course load of 18 credit hours.

Cons

Managers are under a lot of stress from the District Managers to keep DT times down, which is definitely causing quality to suffer. Some managers insist on micromanaging, often getting in the way during rushes. The company used me, and I devoted 4 years of my life to them, with no thanks.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Chill out, your customers would MUCH rather have QUALITY food, with a slightly longer wait than FAST food with a shorter wait.

    Great tips if you work longer shifts.

    Dealing with the public, especially in a restaurant, can be extremely stressful. Some locations are much better than others to work at.
