I have been working at Steak n Shake part-time (More than a year)

Pros

Stealing the chicken fingers is, while prohibited, exceptionally easy and rewarding. This is the only benefit to working at Steak n' Shake; you can steal food with relative ease. Oh, and there IS decent opportunity for advancement within the company for those proficient, driven, and persistent.

Cons

All hourly employees aside from the waiting staff are so severely under-compensated that working for Steak 'n Shake is fiscally irresponsible unless you have no other options. The stress level is high, and hours are erratic and oftentimes significantly too sparse. And you don't even get a free meal, though all managers, district managers, and managers in training are allotted one free meal, irrespective of the size of the order.

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

    Pros

    It is easy work and everyone there was fairly nice.

    Cons

    Nobody cares about the rules. They talked big in the interview but from the first day on no one cared what we did so long as the customers were getting the food in a timely manor. This seems good but it is not. One of the 4 mangers enforced the rules, so harshly that she yelled at people for no reason, the others did not care even a bit.

    Advice to Management

    Get on the same page and draw a uniform line. I don't think that every rule that some corporate stooge comes up with is right but decide where the line is and stick to it.
