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

    Pros

    Servers can make decent money working here if you are forced to work their "bar rush" shift. I could make about $100+ a night in tips on that shift. It was decent money and the work is really easy. Some of the managers are really nice.

    Cons

    You simply can't have a life and work at SteakNShit if you are good at your job. Once the management finds out you are a good hard worker they will give you the long undesirable shifts nobody else will work or simply can't because they can't handle it. They will make that your permanent schedule pretty much not even caring about if you like the shift or not. The management feels like you get no availability because working there you become their worker so they can give you whatever hours or shifts they want. So, don't apply here if you're a normal person with a life because you can't have one working there.

    Advice to Management

    Go into your small town stores. Eat the food they serve, and see if it is up to par for your standards. It most likely won't be, because this business has gone down hill. You care so much about making the money that you forget about the customers. When drive-thru times are more important than serving customers that go their to dine at a "restaurant" you have a problem. You put your numbers before the customers.

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

    Pros

    Repeat customers where nice. I worked with a lot of good people.

    Cons

    Can't work staff more than 28 hours. If overnight crew don't show, the manager has to stay. Low pay all around.

    Advice to Management

    Stop using coupons to build sales if you won't let your managers staff for it. Managers usually work a position not run the business.
