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

    Pros

    Pay check- employed- airconditioned- I dunno.....free meal as long as its under $6

    Cons

    Unrealistic metfics- horrible clientel that is invited in for discounts and freebies- they raise hell until they ruin your day. Threshold for customer complaints is set too low for a low class clientel for you to get a decent bonus. Corporate is not nice by any stretch of the imagination. Do not expect to be treated with respect its just not a priority culturewise

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

    Pros

    It is easy work and everyone there was fairly nice.

    Cons

    Nobody cares about the rules. They talked big in the interview but from the first day on no one cared what we did so long as the customers were getting the food in a timely manor. This seems good but it is not. One of the 4 mangers enforced the rules, so harshly that she yelled at people for no reason, the others did not care even a bit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get on the same page and draw a uniform line. I don't think that every rule that some corporate stooge comes up with is right but decide where the line is and stick to it.
