I worked at In-N-Out Burger part-time (Less than a year)

Pros

- The starting pay at this particular store was $12/hour, which is insanely amazing
- Free burger, fries, and drink every day that you work

Cons

- Favoritism: If you aren't a manager's pet, you'll see yourself get reprimanded for things other people do all the time
- Expected to be nice and peppy to the point of fakeness while managers themselves are rude and not motivating in the least
- Extremely strict dress code, once got in trouble for wearing ankle socks instead of mid calf socks (oh the horror)
- Some days you get off two hours early, the next you're held over your scheduled time by two hours without any notice
- Sometimes you aren't given breaks at all
- You will personally be mocked and made uncomfortable if you work at this particular store
- You will be shown once, very quickly how to perform a task, and then expected to do it yourself, just as quickly, without making a single mistake. To put it simply, the training definitely needs to improve
- A lot of the store's procedures lack efficiency
- You'll stink of burgers even after a shower
- Managers give you a hard time for things you have no control over
- Employees will actually tell on you for things, and once again, if the manager likes them more than you, you'll get in trouble for it
- Managers behave extremely unprofessionally
- Takes forever to move up
- Every manager acts as though they own the world when they flip burgers for a living

Advice to Management

Seek new management for store 119 and weed out employees who are terrible at their job but move up because they party with the managers on the weekends.

    Cons

    -The culture at times was a bit high school, even though 95% of us were in college.
    -Most of the co-workers party together, so if you are not part of that click you sometimes feel left out

    I worked at In-N-Out Burger part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    In N Out takes pride in the employees and product. They provide a great first job as well as room for growth. They hold monthly meetings and showcase outstanding employees. We had Christmas parties and small gifts from corporate.

    Cons

    A lot of cleaning. The busy atmosphere is great for some, but may be overwhelming to others.
