    I worked at Steak n Shake full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Steak n Shake is good concept that give customers the option to have a dine in experience or convince through the drive thru. It is a company that his a lot a room to move up in the company.

    Cons

    The concept on paper sound good but with the price point and the week coupon drops it becomes very difficult to run and supply your local with enough shift to run your restaurant. In most cases you are running short just to meet company goals. There is no home life and work life balance because most location are 24 hours and you run with 3 to 4 managers with a three shift leaders to run your three shift. But if someone does not show to work with a already short shift it can become stressful fast with no support from your management shift. In most cases you are working 60 to 70 hours a week.

    I have been working at Steak n Shake full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    A pay check- you get paid

    Cons

    Rotten Company Culture, No holidays at all, discount & freebie expecting customers who are invited in to eat for almost nothing, micromanagement that comes all the way from the top, endless coupon drops that inflate your volume with little profit per sale, weak and untalented assistant managers that manage to keep their jobs for as long as their willing to stay. Constant demands on your time that take you away from managing -emails, conference calls, homework, assignments, meetings, photographs to take and forward. Tons of paper work, numerous audits to prepare for.
