    One of the best companies on Earth

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    Good Pay, Good friends, good hours, fast to move up. A lot of people coming through all the time, so you really get to meet a lot of different people out there.

    Cons

    Very hard and rigorous work, some times mean managers during shifts. All depending on your manager and who your working around makes the biggest difference at that kind of job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Connect with your associates and gain their trust, rather than just challenge them in a negative way

    Current Employee - Level 6  in  Tucson, AZ (US)
    Current Employee - Level 6 in Tucson, AZ (US)

    Pros

    Great people, good starting pay, ability to move up, training, company activities.

    Cons

    Managers show favoritism, people who show interest in management move up faster than those who have been there longer. Depending on location the culture is a bit different.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to make associates feel more like you care. Many of the managers say they care, and that we can tell them anything, but don't follow through (management has been known to gossip as much as associates in Tucson).

    Pros

    Good pay for type of work done. They are very cooperative about school schedules. Good benefits.

    Cons

    Management in some stores can tend to play favorites as to who gets promoted.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Understand that when you lose interest in current people working on their way up for new favorites can really destroy the moral of the store.

    Pros

    Fair workload and pay, and a daily meal. ;-)

    Cons

    It's fast food, so it's not a career for most people unless you go into management.

    Working at In-N-Out is a life-consuming, fast-paced, conservative place to work at.

    Former Employee - Associate Level IV in San Jose, CA (US)

    Pros

    Super easy to get promoted, reasonable pay, free burger (up to a double-double), fries and soda whenever you work, store parties (hockey games, Dave & Busters, go karting, Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk, etc.) whenever your store reaches its goals, generally all your coworkers are having a good vibes when you work, good hours, annual picnic.

    Cons

    Very conservative: No tattoos, piercings, or any hairstyles. TRANSFERS. The biggest con that I still don't really understand is transferring, I had been on medical leave for 4 months and during those 4 months, I moved from San Jose, CA to Tracy, CA. The transfer system goes like this for INO; you let your manager know you need a transfer, you talk to the store manager of the new store you would like to/need to transfer to and they confirm with you a date for an interview, you go to the interview at the new store, and depending on how you did and what kind of review you get from your previous manager, you get hired or you're SOL, meaning apply to another INO near you or resign from the company. What doesn't make sense to me is why I would have to go through an interview process if I was already employed with the company, I was trying to return for medical leave to help support my family, but the new store manager already seemed to have a prejudice against me before the interview and the hard work of two years i had put in with the company already was lost too.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop playing favorites. Every manager I have had is like another kid from high school, all their friends get the best jobs, most training, more acknowledgement. Treat everyone equally and help out your employees, that is what true leaders do. They get down and dirty with their comrades.
