    I worked at Sonic part-time

    Pros

    You can make good tips as a Sonic carhop if you live in a high income city and are a high school kid. This combo will make your tip amount very high.

    Cons

    You'll be a sonic troll, cleaning and endlessly putting eating utensils, a salt, a pepper and two peppermints into little brown bags of all sizes until you find a better job.

    Advice to Management

    Get out while you can.

    I worked at Sonic (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Nice, comfortable environment. People are willing to teach everything needed to be done and willing to help. Not very hard but a lot to do

    Cons

    Too much standing. There's nowhere to sit down. Having so much to do can range from tiring to frustrating at times. Minimum wage

    Advice to Management

    Have somewhere to sit down. It was pretty decent, but only making minimum wage for it made it feel less worth it.
