    I worked at In-N-Out Burger part-time

    Pros

    Amazing training program
    Regular promotions and raises
    Free food on shift
    Awesome managers

    Cons

    Its fast food so of course it can be hard work. You'll go home tired and dirty.

    Keeping the white pants white is really hard, and they wont promote you if your pants are dirty

    Advice to Management

    Maybe offer some assistance in keeping the pants white? Especially since it's a barrier to promotion

    I have been working at In-N-Out Burger part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The atmosphere is great and it feels very close and connected. The Co-Associates are amazing and very lively. They've all been willing to teach and the attitudes have been consistently positive even during a rush. The benefits are also great and the pay is good as well. It definitely is not a job to slack off on, though. Good hours are given, and management has their stuff together. You also get to meet very nice people and make new friends!

    Cons

    I really have nothing to complain about, however, since it is the restaurant business and it is fast food so you will deal with not-so-great costumers and crazy rushes but continue to be positive!

    I worked at In-N-Out Burger part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Working for In N Out is extremely rewarding. The company has high expectations, which causes the vast majority of store associates to rise to the levels expected of them.

    Everyone starts at a level one, but you are always working on getting your promotion to the next level. There 7 levels before management, and they only promote from within.

    The pay is excellent for a part time job. Associates start at $12.50, and you get a small raise every time you get to a new level. After two years, at a level 4, I was making $14.25 an hour.

    Everyone there helps one another. This is no teamwork makes dream work environment. Each person is expected to perform their individual duties well, and you will be called out when you don’t rise to their expectations. However, everyone knows that the more effectively they collaborate and communicate, the better the store does at meeting customer needs.

    Never had an major issues with other employees. It was a fun, light hearted, and engaging work environment.

    Free burger every shift!

    Flexible with hours and scheduling.

    Cons

    You will spend a LOT of time on your feet. For every 6 hrs, you get a 10 min break.
    If you’re lucky to work an 8, you’ll get an hour break.

    If you are not full time or a higher level or favored by management, you’ll never work more than a 6 hour shift.

    Depending on the store, you have to fight and use your voice to train for the next level. Only a few stores will start that process for you.

    If your store becomes over staffed, you’ll hardly every work.

    Advice to Management

    Don’t over staff, and give people who are starting options to work longer hours.

    I have been working at In-N-Out Burger part-time

    Pros

    The company fosters a very positive environment in each store. Everyone comes in with a positive attitude and ready to work hard. They pay very well and reward you properly for the work you put in. There is plenty of room to move up so long as you prove your worth. It is a great job to have whether you are looking to make extra money on the side or want to look for something long term, as the managers typically make good money.

    Cons

    It is a very demanding job and requires you to consistently be on the go. There isn't much downtime and if there is, someone will most likely be sent home. It may be hard to move up if you do not show your dedication or simply cannot perform tasks efficiently. There also seems to be a high turnover, with many people being relocated, especially managers.

    Advice to Management

    Try your best to engage with all associates and to properly recognize and reward exceptional work where it is due. Look for people who truly want to move up in levels and give them the opportunity to do so.

    I worked at In-N-Out Burger full-time

    Pros

    Fast and Simple! Free meal with every shift, but I recommend protein all throughout the week then splurge one day or else you will end up fat like most of the long term associates.

    Cons

    Very Political, if you're not wiping the store managers butt then you won't get a raise. Also why does the owner of the company get to have tattoos and none of her associates do? Look in the mirror lady, change the damn rule.

    Advice to Management

    Make it equal for people to be able to rank up faster there than having favorites like cute girl or guy that does everything for you
