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

Pros

Food is amazing and delicious when it is made right.

Cons

Wont let you leave until you do your side work no matter how long it takes
Managers sleeping with employees so employees get to the higher level
Awful communication
If you give excellent customer service, the tips will still suck most of the time and management will not notice
Other employees or the host will not tell you during a busy hour that they seated someone in your section so, if you are a server, you need to watch your section
During the night shift, it takes a lot longer than needed to make an order

Advice to Management

Dont sleep with your employees, communication needs to be so much better, actually do the schedule two weeks ahead of time instead of a day.

    I have been working at Steak n Shake full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Pay check- employed- airconditioned- I dunno.....free meal as long as its under $6

    Cons

    Unrealistic metfics- horrible clientel that is invited in for discounts and freebies- they raise hell until they ruin your day. Threshold for customer complaints is set too low for a low class clientel for you to get a decent bonus. Corporate is not nice by any stretch of the imagination. Do not expect to be treated with respect its just not a priority culturewise

    Advice to Management

    Keep looking!
