I am an associate manager at Sonic. Yes new hops make 3.13. But if they do not make enough tips through out their shift, we make up for it until they reach min wage. The cooks make min wage, I can honestly say that everyone in the store is under paid... It gets busy as hell, The place is giving me panic attacks! But I am in the process of finding another job. Do you know anyone hiring?
sounds like sonic wants us to pay its employees in tips so they can rip us a new one in overpriced food. If i tip it got to be more service than someone just carrying my food to me,,give me a break..

the sonic sux at everything but the ice creams and shakes..they even screw those up..everytime we go there, there is this one girl that works there, she has big eyes, straight long frosted like hair, small body type, ausually there late evenings..she is always always on her cell phone while fixin foods...
sonic needs to get older people to work there if they cant get the ones there now to do the job right..they dont care..we were there just yesterday (only because the kids wanted to eat there) and my husband ended up tellin the manager that we prolly would never eat there again..
have you ever ordered a slushy type drink and when you got it all that was in the cup was liquid? uhhhh we did. the chicken wrap was nasty, the chicken was burnt to a crisp as well as the onion rings..
but hey who am i to complain? ohhhh wait BECAUSE FORMER EMPLOYEE ASKED....and that my friend is the rest of the story...
oh and i also agree with RVW they cant hear shit. they always get it me never ask for no whip cream on your blast thingy cause the smart asses will double or mix it down in the ice cream where you cant see it..(glad im not deathly allergic to whip cream)...
You know there's one of you every where you go. If you don't like the place stay away from it. I hate when I go somewhere and there's always the cry baby. This isn't right and that isn't right.
All it comes down to is that NO ONE can make you happy. With food and in your own personal life
GET A LIFE it's a fast food joint. Almost every city has a Sonic! BIG DEAL!

Well for 1 i like Sonic, I just wish they hadn't closed down the 1st Sonic we had back year's ago over on Broadway! It was the best!!!
for 2nd, i have worked at a Rest. before, many many year's, and you know you have to like your job to work there and do good at it, you can't hate it just because of someone needing something! That is what you are there for, is to take their orders and make the customer happy! If you are not making min. wages then take it up with the Unemployment Dept.... for it is against the law to not make min. wages! Now i have like i said worked in Rest. alot and get tip's and no you don't make much working at a place like Peekings or what ever a walk in rest. But then we have our tip's & you have to count some of that as your pay also!
for 3rd, if you don't like your job, then get out of Sonic before you give it a bad name! Instead of saying bad thing's about the coustomers and how they don't leave tip's i always tip my waitress that is if she is friendly speaks to me in a nice way, and her apperance is good! And she does her very best! I always give 15% of the cost! So, if you would like to be paid more, then go find another job. because you on here talking bad to customers and telling them to go some where else to eat, is loosing your bussiness, and you will be with out a job for sure!
If you have God in your life, you will be a happy person, not saying that sometimes we don't get mad, but God help's us control our attitude and our action's! So, maybe it would help if you would get God in your life, and you may be a happier person! And if not then i would sugest that you find you another job, cause someone is going to turn you in and you will be job less! And another thing i was told by 1 person who use to work there! And this is important, that over 1/2 of the workers was on drug's! And if that is so, then no wonder that you can't get the order's right! Get God in your life, Get off the cell phone, take care of your customers and if that doesn't make you happy find another job!

Because if your order is like 5.25 and you have a 10.00, they want the rest of that 10.00.. lol, but i do know where i use to work we would have to trade in our $1's and then when they needed 5 or 10 we would trade those in if we had it! To keep from going to bank, alot of places give out 20.'s, So that maybe the reason why they never have change! Hope you better luck next time!

Well if you have been there for 3 yrs. and you don't miss out and are there on time, what is wrong with the job? With job's being so hard to find this day and time, you need to hang on to what you have! And pray for better times!
If it is the people who work's with you that don't do their job, or they are lackin on the job, then turn them in and get rid of them, there is too many people out here lookin for a job, i know i know of plenty of people who are lookin for job's and willing to work all the hour's they can get! And would be good worker! Dependable also! So hope you the Best of luck!

Listen i know some people who work there personally! And i know that they told me that if they didn't like the person's attitude who was ordering they would spit in the food! Now that came straight from employee~ so guess what i wouldn't eat there if it was the last place in town! I think the inspector's should come in unannounced! What do you all think?
