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

Pros

Most of the employees I worked with were amazing people. We always had fun. Before the management change, things ran smoothly and everyone did their jobs without any nagging.

Cons

Sonic pays carhops close to nothing. I was an Associate and got paid 9/hr.. but worked anywhere from 40-70 hours a week. Expected to work until 12:00am or later, then be back at 5:30 the next day.
Extremely High Turn over

Advice to Management

Make sure all managers know and agree on what all the rules are.

    Pros

    You meet some of the best people and find out what people are really like. It's very flexible and easy to move up.

    Cons

    Just normal customer difficulties. Managers and assistants telling you different instructions and having to cover other employees work when they don't show/call in.

    I worked at Sonic full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    We were like a family there, got good hours, very flexible with scheduling, gave you pretty much any days off you needed, free food lol, very easy to move up to higher positions and get raises.

    Cons

    Gets really slow in the winter so fountain positions get cut and only one carhop and kitchen per shift usually.
