Does Sonic reimburse for mileage?

Pros

Free food if you are a crew member, 8 dollars an hour pay which is good to start off with, but for carhops you get paid $4 and have to pay for your own food at a discount no matter how slow it is. Co-workers can be pretty good sometimes.

Cons

Don't give breaks everyday (which is illegal but its sonic, come on), Will end up working full time even though you ask not to, Don't tell them you have early release or they will schedule you right after school everyday everyday. Don't really care about your social life cause they work you every weekend and sometimes dont give you the days you ask off. Crappy management..... Don't give out raises and if they do it only 50 cents- 75 cents. Overwork their employees even though they are just high school students mostly. I would just say stick up for yourself when the schedule is being made and don't allow them to take advantage of you. Its is an easy job but i wouldn't recommend this place only because of all the cons. Summer time will mess you up cause they over schedule you and don't care because they are over staff.

Advice to Management

LISTEN TO YOUR EMPLOYEES AND GIVE OUT BETTER RAISES.
