      Cons

      You work with a younger generation. the like to not show up on time or at all sometimes which can put a strain on the rest of the crew.

      Pros

      The tips were the main source of income, and sometimes the coworkers were fun to work with. Coworkers can be very helpful...

      Cons

      It's very disorganized. People not showing up to work sometimes, and the general manager doesn't always replace the tip sheets where you need to write how much you made for the day. Everyone working in the front spends too much time on their phones, including the manager. The workers there--general manager mainly, are too touchy and friendly when they are happy, which can be listed as a good thing because maybe you will get along, but I find it inappropriate. Additionally, everyone gets too angry and starts blaming everyone else.

      Pros

      Some pros of working at Sonic is the family-friendly atmosphere. Sonic Drive-In, depending on the manager, is really lenient when it comes to school or extra job offers, and easily work around your schedule.

      Cons

      Some cons are low wages for beginning people, for the amount of work put in through crew members, pay is awfully low. It takes about 6 months to work up to a small raise.
