There was too much Drama and the pay was ridiculous Carhops would get paid $5 an hour! And no one knew that we were suppose to be tipped and I was giving too much time of my life to only see my paycheck come in like $150 after working a 35 hour shift

Answered

I didn’t really have an interview because they was in need of workers.

Every 2 weeks and payday depends when you actually start clocking in!

At my Sonic, all carhops get paid $4 an hour and are required to make a minimum of $3.25 per hour. Considering the amount of tips most girls pull, it’s fair. But, with the season change Sonic is making less money and now most are unable to meet minimum wage, causing strikes and write ups. It is completely unfair and not the girls fault. Are they supposed to lie and say they made more money to avoid termination? It is completely unfair. Also, I think there should be training days and trainers that get paid to do just that, because girls are just being thrown out there with no idea what to do. Lastly, give the people a raise that DESERVE it. I don’t believe you should be given a raise just because you’ve been there 3 years. Our shift leaders get paid to do NOTHING. They are the laziest and most selfish when it comes to taking out orders trying to make tips. I have busted my tail and earned my raise, but i cannot say the same about others who are “higher up” than me. One more thing, have enough carhops scheduled to avoid the unnecessary stress of the job. It shouldn’t be so stressful that the carhops want to just walk out on you.

“No you don’t not here anyway” might be my favorite answer. The folks that didn’t go to school also did not use any punctuation in there comment.

Nope. It's a serious health hazard! The nail could chip off into the food, drinks, or ice machine.
