Shift Supervisor (Current Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – February 23, 2019
if this company keeps on being ran the way it is and the constant change in management and supervisors the company will be out of business by 2021 is my guess they overwork the managers there is no incentive for the employee but a 40% discount shameful
Being completely honest, I love and hate Steak n Shake. I will miss the people, and the fact that i knew everything, working there is easy. Management is stressful, associates also receive a lot of the stress when we are understaffed. Turnover is really bad. People constantly are leaving.
Honestly I would not recommend going there in search of employment because the old gm found new employment and we technically do not have a active gm and the person who in charge is only doing what helps her not what’s best for the team. Henseforth the reason I’m in search for new employment.
Free lunch, double time on thanksgiving and Christmas
Short/ no breaks, only consider thanksgiving and christmas holidays, also will forget to give you your year raise and quarterly bonus
Operations supervisor (Former Employee) – Florissant, MO – February 21, 2019
This is a good job for high school kids who just want some money in their pocket. I can't speak for all locations but majority of those that i have seen and worked at are poorly managed and worked by people with poor attitudes.
poor management, poor employee choices, lack of advancement
Production Worker (Former Employee) – Lansing, MI – February 20, 2019
Half of the managers were more lenient with new workers because they understand the struggles of a new job. The other half criticized the working crew on not working hard enough, or meeting the minimum standards they wouldn’t even be capable of completing.
Managers were nice and on their game, but fellow workers were lazy and threw work on others
Drive Thru Cashier and Drive Thru (Former Employee) – Southaven, MS – February 19, 2019
The job was not hard, but at the beginning I was set up with a fellow employee and they trained me for 1 day and expected me to know it then and there. Managers were lenient with my schedule due to my position in Horn Lake Marching Band and helped me accordingly. Other than lazy co-workers, the job was not hard and slightly enjoyable.
Server/Cashier/Hostess (Current Employee) – Moline, IL – February 19, 2019
Be prepared to be hired as a server but do the jobs of a host/cashier, server and shake maker. The pay is not worth what they are expecting you to do since they can not keep employees. The sections are not even close to being equal. You will be stuck with a bad section which has the worst side work while the people who have been there awhile relax and watch. The seasoned servers will not help run food so you are doing 10 times the work for way less money. Management doesnt care and plays favorites.
Ceo constantly changes his mind resulting in poor culture.
District Manager (Former Employee) – Cleveland, OH – February 19, 2019
I was there for six months and in six months the CEO went from a District manager per two stores to a district manager with 4 - 6 stores to six weeks later an elimination of the District manager completely. You cannnot plan your future under his leadership.
Manager (Current Employee) – Ellisville, MO – February 18, 2019
I was able to learn how to handle new and different tasks. The best part of working for my last employer is that I was able to work closely with others who had the same goal for the company. I had support from the other manager and we shared ideas and information on how to maintain and improve our store. This experience improved my ability to communicate effectively with the employees. I was able to help my coworkers and employees to form a great team. Ther most difficult part of my job was that I did not have any time for a personal life. We struggled with starting issues but we worked together to improve the situation by trying to hire employees and cross- training the current employees.
