I worked at Steak n Shake full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

I was given and fair base salary and benefits just after finishing college.
I enjoyed interacting with guests and ensuring every guest has a great dining experience.

Cons

24 hour business at most locations leads to unfavorable shift times.
Sometimes difficult to provide our guests with high quality food that is made to order in a very short amount of time.
Must balance drive through service and full service dining room.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Some locations have unprofessional work environments

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

    Pros

    Most of your customers are nice.

    Cons

    The management is the absolute worst on this planet. Unbelievably unprofessional and disorganized. They will yell at you over nothing, call you names, and talk down to you.
    Workers do drugs on the clock in the freezer. So much is expected out of you in such an awful environment. Tips do not correlate with how hard you work, considering the food is dirt cheap.

    You end up taking on more jobs than your own. I had been told to do hostessing for a few hours during some shifts and dish washing other times. Those are both different and specific jobs. I'm still getting paid waitress wage (4.77) to do minimum wage (7.79) work!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Mandate drug tests for employees and managers and get rid of some of the cracked out workers! Create better working conditions.
