    I worked at Steak n Shake part-time

    Pros

    If you're a waitor you can get paid very very well, despite it being very hard work when its busy.

    Cons

    The managers dont care, and neither do most of the employees. This can be nice sometimes as you can be lazy, however it really sucks other times when you're having to do other peoples work because the managers didn't check anyone. Also my hours were doubled once I got out of school without even asking me, and when I asked them to lower them, they just wouldn't lower them.
