Sonic Drive-In Reviews

I did enjoy the fast paced environment, however, I would like to see more care for the employees. There were multiple occasions where I burnt myself and the management would not care. I remember we had a wing basket that we needed to clean out at the end of the night every night and one day when I was cleaning it the water splashed back up and got me in the eye! I had a spicy watery liquid in my eye for the longest time and the manager didnt really care about it. I also remember that sometimes they would ask us to stay late, but after we clock out. Management would tell us to clock out, but then would also say alright now go do this or go do that.

Sonic took good care of me! I put in hard hours and they made sure it was worth my while! I learned so much, gained managerial experience, made some awesome friends, and have a great reference now!
I would have liked a little bit less tension between managers. Our GM could hold a heck of a grudge!
Otherwise, my boss was an outstanding guy. He still is, I'm sure! We all made it fun for our crew and our customers!
I enjoy working at Sonics. It is my first restaurant job. The food is excellent and it is always busy. As a teenager who is active in sports and needed money, Sonic's was a great choice for me. The manager works with my school and athletic schedule. I am learning about the restaurant business and having fun. I am looking forward to my continues growth as an employee at Sonics. I appreciate them giving high schools students like myself an opportunity. I am learning about responsibility and money management skills. All of these skills will be very helpful to me in the years to come. Thank you!
