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

Pros

Good money for high school student, got to take home tips every night, easy to bond with coworkers, 40% discount on food

Cons

Management doesn't know how to schedule and you will never work the hours that you are told you will work. Managers are very inconsistent and communication is terrible between the different managers and supervisors. Also you will end up working late into the night if you are in second shift because it is a 24 hour restaurant and sometimes big rushes come in and you will not be allowed to leave. Good luck having a personal life along with work.

Advice to Management

Hire enough people to cover a schedule. There were constantly not enough workers to fill the schedule and people constantly had to stay hours past the time that they were scheduled. Also, when I personally asked not to be scheduled during the week, the only times I ended up being scheduled were during the week. Terrible scheduling.

    Pros

    Quick cash for a high school student

    Cons

    It was all about seniority when it came to getting good sections to wait on. But it's hard to get seniority when you have servers that are 40 years old who have been there for 20 years

    Advice to Management

    make the floor plans yourself
