    I have been working at Steak n Shake full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Lots of opportunities to contribute to change and improve processes; good company brand, good food options, family dining experience

    Cons

    Lack of any focus on employees and supporting them. People are treated like they should be grateful to work there and not like partners in success. Lack of funding to improve outdated systems. This was needed initially to save the company but if you don't keep up your house, it will eventually fall down around you. Turnover is at an all time high and you won't be able to just keep moving people through the doors.

    Advice to Management

    Hire some good leaders and then let them do their job. Use age-old management practices to monitor their progress like reports and performance standards instead of micro-managing every detail. Learn what it means to have a good human resources program and then implement it. People will work hard for you because they want to not because you bully them. Look at reviews from "In and Out Burger".

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

    Pros

    The chance to give great customer service, daily cash.

    Cons

    NASTY and uneducated co-workers, mostly drug users, immoral, with nasty habits. Psychopathic, perimenopausal female managers with a rage on for no actual reason.

    Advice to Management

    STOP listening to sociopaths like a certain female manager in the orlando area....like you were doing back in 08. She got rid of every decent server you had! Kept the drug-using, illiterate TRASH, though! Stop pretending you care about the employees. Giving them a 1-800 number to call, then FIRING them for telling you the truth.
