I have been working at Sonic part-time (More than a year)

Pros

Cool place to meet new people, good co-workers.

Cons

Long hours for nothing in return, not enough compensation for the carhops who work their beep off all day and get treated like dogs from rude customers that think they own the place.

Advice to Management

Change the "Labor watch" thing you guys have, is making us carhops work short hours when we really need them. And stop treating the customers like kings, you guys never know how they really treat us before they send you those complaints and management scream at us because a customer had a bad experience in our store. So please treat us with respect and have the time to understand what really happens in your stores. Oh and by the way stop making us report tips when sometimes we don't even win anything.

    I have been working at Sonic part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I made life-long friends and learned how to deal with customer service in a high paced environment.

    Cons

    My sonic dealt crack out of the kitchen. And the managers got discounts on their crack because they brought buyers in.

    Advice to Management

    Drug test your employees. They were cool to work with, but I was one of 4 out of over 20 employees who didn't do crack/cocaine.

    I have been working at Sonic full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great people, above average pay for this position, ability to make many decisions on your own in certain areas such as designing your store appearance, hiring who you want.

    Cons

    Long hours due to the store opening up very early and closing very late. Although the pay for this position is adequate, high turnover exists because all other positions are very underpaid for the industry, limited control in certain areas such as price control.
