Very nice workers and management. Sometimes of the on weekends workers would call out or not show up and everyone would be forced to pick up the slack. The job can get very busy, but over its a great starting job.

It's exactly what you would expect from really any fast food place. Over worked, underpaid, poor management, terrible morale, dirty and disgusting, and overall unpleasant.

Working was very faced paced which makes the shift seem to go by pretty fast. Really helps you learn customer service and how to deal with multitasking

Good first job, but the manager at the time was not a nice person. I liked being a Carhop because the customers were usually friendly and would tip me.

Pro: You can say you had work experienceCon: Terrible coworkers, hostile work environment, aggressive and mean, overworked and low pay. Can't even take a break in your car. Even if everything is clean you still have to find something to do.
