Former Employee - Associate Manager in Olathe, KS
Former Employee - Associate Manager in Olathe, KS

I worked at Sonic full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Most of the employees I worked with were amazing people. We always had fun. Before the management change, things ran smoothly and everyone did their jobs without any nagging.

Cons

Sonic pays carhops close to nothing. I was an Associate and got paid 9/hr.. but worked anywhere from 40-70 hours a week. Expected to work until 12:00am or later, then be back at 5:30 the next day.
Extremely High Turn over

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Make sure all managers know and agree on what all the rules are.

    Pros

    You meet some of the best people and find out what people are really like. It's very flexible and easy to move up.

    Just normal customer difficulties. Managers and assistants telling you different instructions and having to cover other employees work when they don't show/call in.
