A test of will power. Great place to hone many skills.

General Manager (Current Employee) Indianapolis, IN

ProsA great place to grow. Many independent decisions must be made in the heat of the moment. High paced and intense environment will prepare individuals for obstacles the rest of their careers. Leadership has a vision and provides numerous tools to accomplish lofty standards. Results based bonus plan allows for competitive individuals to strive towards greatness.

ConsHigh turnover in a high paced environment makes for very stressful situations often. Lofty standards, when unmet, after long periods of time can become discouraging. However, greatness is not achieved through subpar standards. These are impressive standards but there must be a deep passion to achieve these goals. This makes for a challenge to find great mangers to work through. Finally the low wages for hourly associates magnifies the turnover. A well paid grill operator a Steak N Shake is paid less than a dishwasher at other chains.

Advice to Senior ManagementBe ready to work and set high expectations for yourself. Never stop hiring!!! When it's time to go, GO! Long weeks will burn the best of the best out quick.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
