Waitressing
Waitress (Former Employee), Covington GaJune 17, 2015
I really didn't like the tips there. The people were really nice though. I'm just not used to doing so much work for so little pay.

SERVER - CASHIER (Current Employee), Jacksonville, FLJune 12, 2015
The most enjoyable part of my job is to see my guests happy when they are there and when they leave. The food business is hard especially for the servers. Working at sonny's has given me a new perspective of customer service. Its taught me to appreciate all kind words and genuine people, also my work ethic has grown tremendously over the years. A typical day at sonny's is pretty busy. We have maybe – more... a pretty good crew there to help get us through the hustle and bustle and have had many good people come and go. Our regulars are the best and they are very interesting people, our customer base is pretty diverse. Everybody loves good BBQ. We are all like family which is kind of the hardest part. Our management is pretty diverse in their way of leading which is what we need. Our crew is very different and we all have a manager that fits us best. – less

Reserved yet fun work environment
Server (Current Employee), Athens, GAMay 15, 2015
Pros: wholeness
Cons: limited hours
Mannerism is a must working in the service industry. Along with patience, in which I have learned and gained a greater amount of patience working as a server. Everyday is a new day, which means a new start if the previous day wasn't all that great. I love my co-workers. Each and everyone of them are outstanding people in general and to work with. I think highly of all of the managers there. They have always been there for me in any time of need. Especially when I'm doubting myself. They always want to see each and everyone of their employees strive and succeed in greatness.

Cashier (Current Employee), Starke, FLApril 21, 2015
Sonnys is a like a great day going out with friends. Everyone there are the best of friends! I've learned how to use a terminal as well as be the best person I can be. Managers there are awesome, as well as co-workers. There's no hard part about the job. The most enjoyable part is getting to meet new people everyday and getting to work with people you love.

A great place to work
Cashier (Current Employee), jacksonville, FLMarch 19, 2015
A typical day at sonny's bbq is filled with joy and fun. We provide customers with an amazing great experience from the hospitality to the food. It's like one big family sometimes there are disagreements but at the end of the day we are all in this for each other and our customers. The most difficult part about working here or anywhere is when there is an unhappy customer that you just can't satisfy. I always loved seeing people leave with full bellys and happy smiles.

Fun place to work, great people, great opportunities and a strong family bond throughout the establishment.
Server, Cashier, Take-Out (Current Employee), Alachua, FLDecember 2, 2014
My job at Sonny's BBQ consists, everyday, of working together. Whether its co-workers, managers, or guests, my place is to balance every need and ensure the happiness of the entire restaurant. By doing this, my team and I are able to sustain an outstanding work environment where we feel free to communicate with each other and there are no problems when it comes to fixing any issues that may occur during the day. The hardest part of my job is delivering bad news. The smallest thing can alter a guest's visit, and sometimes those things are out of our control. However, the best part is when I can make a real connection with a guest and they come back as a new friend.

Wonderfully staffed with employment who does not fear labor.
Cook (Current Employee), 1380 E. Boone Avenue, Kingsland, GA 31548November 17, 2014
I came to Sonny's after my time with Zaxbys and fell in love with the organizational culture shortly afterwards. The cooks were great and the servers were wonderful, management worked hard and showed nothing but compassion for their employees. They accommodated my schedule accordingly and gladly rearranged any mishaps that may have occurred. I gladly encourage anybody who may be interested in working at Sonny's to apply as long as they are capable of carrying their fair share with a positive attitude.
