Blog 4: Alexis SuperSonic Life at Sonic


Alexis Romo, Digital Media Reporter

Hey guys, welcome back to my blog. Today I am going to talk about why I really enjoy working at Sonic!


When I first began my job at Sonic I did not realize what I was getting myself into. My first, day was one of the craziest days I had ever had to live through. It was the beginning of summer so it had been a very busy day. On my first day the managers were not impressed by my working skills, and I did not enjoy that. Instead of me letting that get to me, I used it as the energy to encourage me to be better. Later on after working hard, the managers were impressed and began to allow me to work more hours. Now I am the employee trainer for all new carhops and I have been recognized by our main manager as one of the fastest carhops, which is one of the reasons why I enjoy working at Sonic, as it is a place where I am good at what I do and I feel needed there.


Another main reason why I am so happy to work at Sonic is because of the environment. I get to move around, see new customers, have small talks, go outside, and enjoy the weather. Sonic is located on one of the busiest roads in Dodge City, which always has people driving or walking around. The energy feels so great being able to work at a restaurant where my coworkers are like family to me. Having to go through many hardships together at our job, we all learn to rely on each other and build a strong connection. I am not forced to work with strangers as even with new coworkers I am able to build a connection rapidly.


Most jobs you just stay in the same spot and work the same job for a few hours. At my job, I am  moving all the time, doing different jobs where ever help is needed. Although carhopping is my main job I still enjoy to help out with other positions as I know most positions. While I carhop most customers will usually be very friendly and I will even recognize many, which makes me happy being able to chat with many different people.


Thank you once again for coming back, I appreciate it and hope you visit Sonic sometime soon!
