I worked at Sonic part-time (More than a year)

Pros

Fun work environment
easy to learn menu
Hourly pay plus tips for carhops
Plenty of exercise while working
Discounted meals and free drinks

Cons

It can be extremely exhausting in hot weather. I would only advise that young and energetic individuals apply.
As with any fast food franchise, employees are not always dependable, meaning that you could end end up running a busy lunch hour almost by yourself.
I've heard that some owners pay less than minimum wage to car hops because they are supposed to make tips, but not everyone tips their car hop.

Advice to Management

My advice to management is to require that all car hops get paid at least minimum wage, because they don't always make tips.
