I worked at Steak n Shake full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

The company kept me at work so often, that I barely had the opportunity to save money. When I started to go back to school, they worked with my schedule for a month, and then started throwing me on 3rd and 2nd shift, while I had a course load of 18 credit hours.

Cons

Managers are under a lot of stress from the District Managers to keep DT times down, which is definitely causing quality to suffer. Some managers insist on micromanaging, often getting in the way during rushes. The company used me, and I devoted 4 years of my life to them, with no thanks.

Advice to Management

Chill out, your customers would MUCH rather have QUALITY food, with a slightly longer wait than FAST food with a shorter wait.

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

    Pros

    Paycheck, some good employees and some good customers.

    Cons

    "Do what I say" atmosphere and even though "I will hlep" they never do.
    Everything.
    This is the WORST company I have worked for in my 20 years at food service. It's nothing but show for corporate visitors and no long term change or improvement. Run. Run as fast and as far as you can.

    Advice to Management

    Not enough time and space.
