I worked at In-N-Out Burger full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Starting pay for a fast food job. Free food when you work. Good for people who like a busy atmosphere.

Cons

The company really only cares about their bottom line. I brought up the fact to management that a new associate would do something the wrong way, and they told me that they didn't care--the only reason they were hired was because they were pretty and looked good for customers.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't act like you care about your associates when you shut them down for bringing up their feelings about store issues.

    I worked at In-N-Out Burger part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    - The starting pay at this particular store was $12/hour, which is insanely amazing
    - Free burger, fries, and drink every day that you work

    Cons

    - Favoritism: If you aren't a manager's pet, you'll see yourself get reprimanded for things other people do all the time
    - Expected to be nice and peppy to the point of fakeness while managers themselves are rude and not motivating in the least
    - Extremely strict dress code, once got in trouble for wearing ankle socks instead of mid calf socks (oh the horror)
    - Some days you get off two hours early, the next you're held over your scheduled time by two hours without any notice
    - Sometimes you aren't given breaks at all
    - You will personally be mocked and made uncomfortable if you work at this particular store
    - You will be shown once, very quickly how to perform a task, and then expected to do it yourself, just as quickly, without making a single mistake. To put it simply, the training definitely needs to improve
    - A lot of the store's procedures lack efficiency
    - You'll stink of burgers even after a shower
    - Managers give you a hard time for things you have no control over
    - Employees will actually tell on you for things, and once again, if the manager likes them more than you, you'll get in trouble for it
    - Managers behave extremely unprofessionally
    - Takes forever to move up
    - Every manager acts as though they own the world when they flip burgers for a living

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Seek new management for store 119 and weed out employees who are terrible at their job but move up because they party with the managers on the weekends.

    I worked at In-N-Out Burger part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    -Free burgers and fries on your lunch break
    -Team oriented environment
    -Working with other people like me (student)
    -No problem getting days off or adding shifts
    -Great customers
    -If there was something you wanted to be trained on, all you would have to do is ask and someone would train you on that specific task.

    Cons

    -The culture at times was a bit high school, even though 95% of us were in college.
    -Most of the co-workers party together, so if you are not part of that click you sometimes feel left out

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The management did a nice job!
