    Application Details

    The process took 5+ weeksinterviewed at Sonic in January 2015.

    Interview Details

    Found out about the position from Craigslist. They had a job fair so my best friend & I went together. We were the first ones there & they gave us a paper application to fill out even though we did an online application. After we did the application the hiring manager came out & was very nice & started my interview first . I don't remember the questions because it was so long ago but it was VERY EASY ! After the interview u was told i would get a call in two weeks if i got the job. Two weeks passed anf i didnt get a call so i called them nire than once and finally just gave up. I dressed up too but believe me do not dress up for a sonic interview. My interviewer wore shorts, a tank top, & sun glasses. Just be yourself

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a dayinterviewed at Sonic.

    Interview Details

    My friend and I saw a "Now hiring" sign so we went through the drive-thru to get an application since we assumed we weren't allowed inside. The assistant told us we needed to come inside for an application. Upon receiving the application she told us about the open interview times. I returned for the open interview with the GM which was pretty short and was hired on the spot. You will most likely get hired on the spot or not at all.

    Drive Thru Crew Member Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Sonic in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and was email two days later to come in and interview. When I got there, there was a sign notifying that interviews would be conducted three at a time, but I only interviewed with one other person.This Sonic was still under construction, so I would assume this is why they were conducted in groups. The interview was held in a trailer on the construction site. Overall, it was an okay interview, but the interviewers seemed to be bored and made it obvious that they did not want to be there - it seemed like a burden to them.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Sonic in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    I filled out and application online, and a few weeks later, I came to the interview (as listed on their craigslist ad). We were interviewed three at a time. We were asked about our strengths, weaknesses, why we should be hired, and why we would want to work at Sonic. We each told the interviewer 3-4 sentences about ourselves in the beginning. It was weird because there was no order in which we answered, it was just whoever spoke first and so on. She was very nice, it was a low stress environment, and I hardly felt any pressure. At the end, I handed her my resume, thanked her for the opportunity and left.

    The entire interview was very haphazard, and easy to say the least. I was greeted, offered a drink numerous times, and interviewed with questions such as what would you do with an upset costumer

    Took a week or two to get a call about a job interview. Went in early and was interviewed by the manager. Talked alot about stress and handling it, plus normal questions. Wasn't hard, and the manager said I probably would get the job. Never got a call back, though.
