Fun and Fast paced place of employment
Car Hop (Current Employee), Jonesboro, ARApril 5, 2015
This job is a very fun and fast paced place of employment that requires you to be ready for those busy and hectic parts of the day where you are required to get the food orders out and delivered in a timely manner. Customer service is a very big key in making sure the customers keep coming back. While I can still manage to balance my job here and my home life, this job isn't for the long term. There is no chance of getting a raise and no chance of advancement. The management team isn't the greatest as they don't look out for the best interest of their employees. My co-workers are always easy to get a long with and fun to work with keeping my days shorter. Hardest part of the job is fearing not meeting expectations. My most enjoyable part of the job is customer interactions. I enjoy making customers happy and keeping them coming back.

Making the drinks at Happy Hour
Carhop (Former Employee), Siloam Springs, ARApril 3, 2015
Pros: 50% off your order on your break.
Cons: 15 minute breaks every 4 hours.
When the clock hits 2 o'clock the lot becomes packed! There are so many drink orders that the managers make the drinks while the carhops take them out. You have to look for the tickets under the drinks to make sure you have the right ones.

Pros: You get to meet new people all the time and learn how to handle money and calculate money.

Carhop/Cashier (Former Employee), Jackson, MSMarch 30, 2015
Sonic isnt the best place to work at depending on where you decide to land a job at. you only make 5.25 and tips. However you must make 2$ for every hour you work which isnt realistic to me when everyone doesn't tip and/ or uses a credit card.

Cheerful upbeat environment.
Carhop/Cashier (Former Employee), Clarksville, TNMarch 30, 2015
Managers tend to have a relaxed view on what the employees should do. They have rules,, but they do try to make work fun. We had costumes on halloween, and they played music for us along with games when we had downtime.

Busy
Car Hop (Former Employee), Euless, TXMarch 27, 2015
A typical day at Sonic would be taking orders and delivering food to customers. What I've learned from working here is that you have to know how to work in a fast paste environment. One of the managers there I felt was kind of weird and not at all understanding my other managers were very nice,caring, understanding and helpful. My coworkers were very helpful and fun to be around.The most difficult part about working at Sonic was learning the entire menu, the most enjoyable part about working at there is just being around my coworkers and seeing customers who prefer you to bring their food out and rather tip you because of the good energy they get from you.

Assistant Manager (Former Employee), Saint Charles, MOMarch 26, 2015
Sometimes my day can consist of working 12 hours with a small break. The hardest part of the job was having 1/2 price shakes after 8pm everyday. Always short staff especially during half price shakes. I enjoyed working with my manager. My manager took me under wing and taught me what I needed to know. She took the time and effort to make sure I was trained the way she wanted me to be trained.
