    I have been working at Steak n Shake full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    As a general manager I can somewhat make my own schedule, although they give you an 11 point guideline you must meet

    Cons

    What isn't a con with this company. They micro manage EVERYTHING!!! They hire a lot of men managers that sexually harrass the female servers, then give them a slap on the hand and fire the employee. (I'm a female, but i've seen this many times.) The company as a whole is anti female. They never pay your bonuses out on time, and they change the bonus plan multiple times a year then expect you to memorize how this structure works overnight. They come up with a "new crazy rule" every so often. The newest one is managers can't be in the office from 11am-330pm and then 6pm-10pm. So even if I have ONE table in the dining room at 3 pm I'm not supposed to enter the office and work on any paperwork type stuff until 330. It's very insulting that you don't trust me as a general manager to run my store.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just let us run the D*** stores. If they are green get out of our way and stop nitpicking EVERY SINGLE LITTLE THING. And stop setting unrealistic expectations of us, with minimum staffing...stop changing what you want every 5 seconds.
