Don't waste your time
Team Member (Former Employee) –  New York, NYFebruary 3, 2019
Not a good place to work at at all. very poor management very
unorganized never want you to go further in Shake Shack, to many
people doing faviortism mess, lack of hours not enough pay,
the managers get into cliques like we are in high school, people
gossip about other people, managers are very sneaky they like
to cut off your hours, they don't care if you sick our have a doctors
appointment they still want you to come in.. i would never tell anyone to apply to this job, because is just not worth it to settle for
a little bit of money.. like its to much drama.. also people like to
snitch on one another like we in grade school i got so much to say,
because it's not right at all like you doing all these hours and i am
gonna get paid less and not going to proud of the hard work i do?
no way never going to waste time
Pros

During an average day at shake shack there was never a dull moment, even if the store was slow, we were moving. overall fun place to work and cool managers.

Chicken WIth It's Head Cut Off
Staff Member (Current Employee) –  Bridgewater, NJSeptember 18, 2019
The managers run around the kitchen panicking wondering why the trainers aren't running the shift that the manager's set up poorly, promotions have no rhyme or reason to them and there's no predictable way to determine who will be promoted next. No one knows the proper standards. management has little to no respect for their employees or their availability. Constantly under-stocked on every single possible item and no one gets the promotions they deserve.
