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

    Pros

    You'll love the people. Working there was always very entertaining and funny. Most of the workers will keep you laughing. (When they aren't understaffed) the work isn't too hard.

    Cons

    Managers expect you to do other people's jobs for little pay. The management is pretty trash. All of the management are too buddy-bussy with the workers.
