    Pros

    DL Rogers is the Franchise operator in my area. I did extensive research on this company. I could not find a single negative review anywhere and for good reason. Very family orientated and pro staff and absolutely pro customer. A culture of its own. You will find that you're part of something bigger. A positive impact on my view of quick serve.

    Cons

    None. This is a new position

    Advice to Management

    Keep on doing what you're doing. You're right on target.

    I worked at Sonic part-time

    Pros

    I worked at Sonic while I was in school, and my manager was very understanding of my schedule. Roller skating at work was a bonus!

    Pros

    They will work with your schedule. They train veyr thourghaly. They explain things in great detail. And they make sure you feel comfortable in the workspace.

    Cons

    Gets very busy around 8-12 so it gets messy. Very fast paced work environment from 8-12. No job can garentee that you'll like everybody there so don't count on it.

    Advice to Management

    I have nothing to advice. This company is amazing at what they do and how they do it. They accomplish things as a team that nobody could do by themsleves.

    I worked at Sonic part-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Family oriented business (for a franchise). They're really good about working with college students schedules, as well as its a great job for those who need about 10 or 12 extra bucks to get em through the week.

    Cons

    Has a tendency to lull people into poor habits. They can get too comfortable being it's such a chill place to work and get lazy sometimes.

    Advice to Management

    Be more understanding of your employees personal lives.
