You will not make enough money at Sonic. The best thing to do is to work there to get experience and move on to something better. They will promise you the moon so you won't quit but never make good on any of your promises. Don't believe anything they say.

Stress/Too much overtime for managers causing employees to get sent home for a hole shift (max of 3 employees) Lack of pay, this job is fit for a 14 year old cant live off such job.

I have been working here for nearly a year and it the job stresses you out past your limit to the point you just want to curl up and cry. Not enough pay either even with tips. Especially when your “manager” does absolutely nothing but count money. I love the people, but the stress is completely illogical and can be avoided.

I left because of the drama between my co workers and customers. Literally everyone was fake. I worked at a location for 5 years as a shift leader. I felt like too much stress was put on me since I literally knew how to do every single manager duty and not enough pay. When people called off, we struggled and stress got the best of me during the lunch rushes. i had had enough after opening 6am-2pm sometimes 4pm monday through friday on only 3 hours of sleep since i have 2 young children to take care of on top of it. THAT PLACE WASN'T WORTH me LEGITIMATELY LOSING MY SANITY. it's been over a year since i've been gone, and i have honestly never been more happy in my life.

No training. No help. They don't care about you. Favoritism at its finest.

I left because of the inconsistent pay days and scheduling they were trying to give me. Really disappointing because it’s an enjoyable job. It got really inconsistent with my hours and pay so I found a more steady job with a better flow of pay.

Too stressful. I shouldn’t have to decide between my job or my mental stability.

Not enough pay you really have to get down in there and work to get a raise they could have you go a year or more even 2 or 3 years till you get a raise

I worked for the same Sonic for over a year, took on manager duties without a manager title and was expected to do a lot of things that weren’t necessarily in my job description or my pay. I was told I’d get a raise and never received one, so I found a better paying job!
