    I worked at Sonic full-time

    Pros

    The tips were the main source of income, and sometimes the coworkers were fun to work with. Coworkers can be very helpful...

    Cons

    It's very disorganized. People not showing up to work sometimes, and the general manager doesn't always replace the tip sheets where you need to write how much you made for the day. Everyone working in the front spends too much time on their phones, including the manager. The workers there--general manager mainly, are too touchy and friendly when they are happy, which can be listed as a good thing because maybe you will get along, but I find it inappropriate. Additionally, everyone gets too angry and starts blaming everyone else.
