    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Sonic (Fullerton, CA).

    Interview

    I heard about the job from a friend who had gotten an on-the-spot interview earlier in the day and applied to the location the same day (a few weeks before it officially opened). It was a very casual, application and interview process. The two managers, at the time, sat on the outdoor patio and conducted short, simple interviews and hired people on the spot. It seemed like they were accepting most applicants who seemed like good people.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Sonic in June 2015.

    Interview

    Applied a few weeks ago, didn't get a call until 3 weeks later. He called me at 5 in the afternoon (which in my opinion I thought was unprofessional) I was asked to come in to an interview the very next day. I thought the interview went well except for the fact that he seemed a bit irritated and impatient since I was the second to last interview. There were many teens especially waiting for an interview. I personally thought I could have done better but I'm waiting on the call now.
