Ok company. Don't get paid what you should at a franchise.

I worked at Steak n Shake full-time for more than a year

Pros

Flexible with nice managers. The managers really try to improve things that need to he improved. They also work with you and what's going on in your life so that way you're not working too much or too less.

Cons

Don't get paid the amount you should. It gets very busy. You basically work too hard for the little pay. You get no vacation or no benefits. You don't get 40 hours a week because the owner doesn't want to pay insurance on us. You don't get emplyee discounts when you're not working. There is much favortism shown with certain managers.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep up the good work you are wonderful people.

    I worked at Steak n Shake part-time

    Pros

    Steak n Shake is diverse. When you leave the company, you also leave people behind. It's service training was easy to understand and efficient. The management team always did a good job motivating employees to stay engaged and helped employees whenever possible, even if that meant making the shakes, delivering food, sweeping. Wherever there was a need, the manager filled it.

    Cons

    Working in the service industry is tough. People seem to think less of you because you are "serving" them, and they expect their food quickly.

    I have been working at Steak n Shake part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The tips were good. Not becuase people tipped good, but mostly becuase you have sooo many tables in one day that those $2-4 tips added up. Not that strict at my store.

    Cons

    realized my hatred for corporate jobs. They good care less about you. Management was stressed bc of them so they cut hours, were cheap, and always stressed. Rude customers. Lots of teens.
