I interviewed at Sonic
The process is super easy. They do not ask you too many questions. So, it’s not like you have to worry about answering the questions wrong. They just want to see if you can show up on time and see what your work ethic like.

I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Sonic
A 35 minute phone call with the talent recruiter then a panel interview with members of corporate. The second interview was at a local location since sonic only has outside seating. I got an offer the next day.

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Somerville, MA
I interviewed at Sonic (Somerville, MA)
Awful and unprofessional it was really just the most god awful interview with a person who talks as slow as a slug. Hands down don’t ever interview with them. I would rather hang out by myself in the dark then ever have another interview with these people again in my whole life.

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Norman, OK
I interviewed at Sonic (Norman, OK)
Took them a minute to actually show up and do the interview, and it went ok but the manager was really slow and put out by taking the interview, saying someone else should have done it.
- Q:What are you interested in? Q:Where do you see yourself in 5-10 years? Q:What do you expect to be you salary? Q:What do you do in your spare time? Q:What are your grades like?
I interviewed at Sonic
Quick with basic management questions. P and L, labor, sales building, conflict resolution, hiring, customer service, etc. If you have ever managed a restaurant before you will find the interview easy.
- What are the most important controllable costs?
I interviewed at Sonic
Interview with the supervisor and then another interview with the manager. Offer was with the manager to start off as a cook and possibly move to help with serving. They wanted part timers.
