Famous steakburger
Take orders and cash out orders. Fill drinks. Make shakes. Restock my area for the next shift and also make sure my area was swept and mopped. Then take trash out and reline the bag.

Will never work there again
Management sucks and the place wasn't kept up at all. The managers would sit in the back on their phones. Parts of the store like the break-room would be dirty and have bugs everywhere along with the dish-washing station.

Family brand
You will need a strong work ethic to work here. The customers are pretty friendly once you get to know them. This is definitely a family friendly brand.

It is also a job.
It was my first job and really sets the standard for all food service jobs. You work with children, adult children, bad behaving customers, and inept management. Also everything was always disgustingly dirty. After I left, everything seemed to be in a state of disorder. The fact that they have since closed most Steak 'n' Shakes says something.

Steak and Shake is an old school company with racial guidelines.
While working there I experienced racial comments and poor management. They have rules you can't even wear dreads because they're considered dirty. While going through some bad home experiences my management gave me grief for coming in with a broken hand that I couldn't control.

It’s a good company to work for.
My place of employment is great. They work with what you need. If there’s an emergency, they are very understanding. They make you feel welcome and make you feel appreciated.

My time at steak n shake
I love most of the people I work with because their fun people but the managers are picky of who they like and then they treat the rest poorly. I have fun at work when I’m doing what I’m doing but it’s also sometimes a toxic environment.

Fast paced
This is a fast paced environment. Keep up with customers orders and your cleaning and keeping stocked. Weekends and holidays are busy. 1st shift is laid back and quiet.

It’s a decent job.
It definitely pays the bills but all the stores have went down hill within the last 1 year. The hours are definitely there but it’s very tiresome when you are the only one deemed capable of doing everyone’s job.

Sure
They closed there doors and could care less about there guests or associates. They are a poorly managed company. Plus my general manager was stealing and changing my counts. When I said something to DM nothing was done.

Highs and Lows
Work life can vary depending on what shifts, days and positions you work. It can be great one day and then be completely awful the next day. Master as many positions as possible to learn what works for you.
