I love my staff. They were very welcoming from the start and made me feel very loved. It was quick for me to pick up how to work my station. It wasn't all work though. e laughed and put up music videos to our job website.

The most enjoyable part of working at Shake Shack is building friendships with the workers and being able to work together as a team so well! however, management is horrible they offer no job security. Extremely irrational expectations from management making it difficult to be a human being with outside employment obligations. I've seen this company make alcoholics relapse, recovering addicts begin using again and students experiencing anxiety attacks from it all. The job duties are easy!
Pros
Great location for commuters
Cons
Management, Benefits, Job security

Great company culture, the management could be better but that's typical with any job. The pay is great for the type of work being done.
Pros
large discount on food while on the clock.

Tis' the Struggle...
"Prep Cook-Cashier" (Former Employee) –  New Haven, CTMarch 31, 2016
Working at Shake Shack was different. They expect newcomers to adapt to the work environment QUICKLY. The thing is, I know that every workplace requires speed when it comes to working. But for a newcomer, they should have a little more leniency, considering the fact that it was my FIRST JOB. I did not like the management team because I felt as though the manager herself was not polite. I felt as if what I did was not good enough for her, and I couldn't make her pleased with my efforts.
Pros
Sampling
Cons
bad management
