Great place to start
Team Member/Cashier (Former Employee) –  8520 Santa Monica Blvd, West Hollywood, CA 90069February 3, 2019
Shake Shack is a great place to be your first time job. It was a very nice and friendly environment, however the stress can get a bit intense at times, specifically on busier days. In my particular store we were very busy and had little to no space for our breaks. so we would get cramped walking past each other and sitting on the floor sometimes to eat our food. The hardest part is dealing with annoying guests.
Pros
Friendly and simple job
Cons
Location

Productive workplace but experienced mistreatment
Team Member/Cashier (Current Employee) –  Chicago, ILNovember 5, 2018
Be careful and keep things professional even when management chooses to do the opposite.not somewhere i would want to be for more than a year. They arent big on advancement unless it benefits them.
Cons
Bad Management and Unprofessionalism

CASHIER (Current Employee) –  Washington, DCAugust 10, 2018
Its a fast pace dinning experience. Customer service is the number one priority. The management team is great they are very understanding and is willing to work with you. The hardest part was when you first start working there and the lunch rush and the kids that's on trips visiting the near by museums. I enjoyed working at shake shack because everything we did was done as a team and the team was always looking out for one another.
Pros
Discounted Lunch
Cons
30 minute breaks was not enough working 8-12 hour shifts

Excessive hours and short breaks
CASHIER (Former Employee) –  Oxon Hill, MDJune 11, 2018
Working at Shake Shack had more cons than pros. The money was good but the hours were too excessive because they had us work until 1 or sometimes 2 am. The hours were very long with only a 30-minute break which was in my opinion unacceptable. If you work at Shake Shack, you must be physically and mentally prepared for all the hours you will be working because it can be quite overwhelming.
Pros
Good pay
Cons
Excessive hours and short breaks
