Hourly Associate - Pretty Much What You'd Expect

Former Employee - Production
Former Employee - Production

I worked at Steak n Shake part-time (less than a year)

Pros

Worked as an hourly employee makin grub. No real pros honestly, just a way to make a buck or two. I guess if a 30% food discount really lights your lamp then this is the place to be.

Cons

Had a manager quit in the middle of a shift one night
2 employees were fired in 2 months of working there
No benefits for hourlies; very strict on food leakage at my location
Wound up working dish, fountain, and prep. When I got done with that, I was cleaning ceilings, pipes, the freezers, and the parking lot. Earned every cent of that $7.25

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I understand management doesn't care about their hourlies, but I wonder if promoting better would improve workflow at locations. Our managers were either quitting or smoking pot, how do you expect the site to run well?
