    I have been working at In-N-Out Burger full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good pay for type of work done. They are very cooperative about school schedules. Good benefits.

    Cons

    Management in some stores can tend to play favorites as to who gets promoted.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Understand that when you lose interest in current people working on their way up for new favorites can really destroy the moral of the store.

    I worked at In-N-Out Burger

    Pros

    Fair workload and pay, and a daily meal. ;-)

    Cons

    It's fast food, so it's not a career for most people unless you go into management.

    Working at In-N-Out is a life-consuming, fast-paced, conservative place to work at.

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

    Pros

    Super easy to get promoted, reasonable pay, free burger (up to a double-double), fries and soda whenever you work, store parties (hockey games, Dave & Busters, go karting, Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk, etc.) whenever your store reaches its goals, generally all your coworkers are having a good vibes when you work, good hours, annual picnic.

    Cons

    Very conservative: No tattoos, piercings, or any hairstyles. TRANSFERS. The biggest con that I still don't really understand is transferring, I had been on medical leave for 4 months and during those 4 months, I moved from San Jose, CA to Tracy, CA. The transfer system goes like this for INO; you let your manager know you need a transfer, you talk to the store manager of the new store you would like to/need to transfer to and they confirm with you a date for an interview, you go to the interview at the new store, and depending on how you did and what kind of review you get from your previous manager, you get hired or you're SOL, meaning apply to another INO near you or resign from the company. What doesn't make sense to me is why I would have to go through an interview process if I was already employed with the company, I was trying to return for medical leave to help support my family, but the new store manager already seemed to have a prejudice against me before the interview and the hard work of two years i had put in with the company already was lost too.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop playing favorites. Every manager I have had is like another kid from high school, all their friends get the best jobs, most training, more acknowledgement. Treat everyone equally and help out your employees, that is what true leaders do. They get down and dirty with their comrades.

    I have been working at In-N-Out Burger part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great people, good starting pay, ability to move up, training, company activities.

    Cons

    Managers show favoritism, people who show interest in management move up faster than those who have been there longer. Depending on location the culture is a bit different.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to make associates feel more like you care. Many of the managers say they care, and that we can tell them anything, but don't follow through (management has been known to gossip as much as associates in Tucson).

    I have been working at In-N-Out Burger part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    If you work hard and can keep up promotions and raises are simple. You are always working on how well you work and what you can get better at. Company picnic with free food, fair rides, water park, and concert is included every year. You get very used to the people you work with, they become close friends. All employees get a gift for meeting burger quotas and safety. Over the course of my employment I got an mp3 player, a Bluetooth, glass chess set etc.

    Cons

    It's very frustrating because everyone you work with depends on each other. Therefore, if one person isn't doing their job, everyone else has to work harder. Like all jobs there are favoritism issues with managers. You have to be available always. Work-life can either be great or horrible. Associates are very competitive in this company, if you can't keep up, if you don't speak up about issues, and if you are very emotional, you may have a hard time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider and appreciate all personality types. Many times the shy or quiet people are not appreciated. Although this may be their personality this does not mean they are not good workers or don't have the potential to be. Consider psychological and stereotypical aspects of employees. For example, men get raises easier because they can worker fryers or grills. Taller employees also get more attention because psychologically height is authority or potential.
