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.

    I have been working at Steak n Shake full-time for 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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep looking!
