    Pros

    The best things about working at Sonic is that you get a free lunch. The interview was an easy process. You learn how to be fast paced and learn a lot about customer service.

    Cons

    Working at sonic there was a lot of drama going on.

    Pros

    The money, and it's a very relaxed environment inside. You also get some free/discounted food and drinks, but really the strongest pro is just the money

    Cons

    It's a demanding job, on your feet all day. It can get really fast paced, and the hours are usually long. They are a little flexible with schedules, but ask for ridiculous hours (from a high school student's standpoint). They'll work you up to 39 hours a week if they can

    Advice to Management

    Definitely get a better system for managing work schedules, like maybe something online, through email, or even just displayed a little more prominently in the building

  9. Okay

    Pros

    The people you work with can be amazing, its fast pace and they are willing to teach you and allow you to move up.

    Cons

    Upper management only cares about their numbers and not their employees. Hitting that bottom line and getting those shop checks high is all that matters.

    Advice to Management

    Work with your staff to help improve the stores, don't take them for granted. They need to have trust in you to respect what is going on.
