    Money! Hourly plus tips is what I made so it was great money.

    It's fast food. So you have to shower before you can go out.

    Give raises to deserving employees

    Neutral Outlook

    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.
