It was practically a high school full of gossip
Store Associate (Former Employee) –  Mesa, AZAugust 13, 2018
During my time at In N Out I kept to myself more often hearing all the gossip. The environment set by the monthly switched shift leaders a lot of the times stressed you out as if for entertainment. Female associates could refuse certain duties where males had them enforced on.

very fast and very stressful
In-N-Out -Store Associate (Former Employee) –  Pleasant Hill, CAJuly 9, 2018
its not a amazing job but you get paid very well and you can advance pretty fast if you really want too. management can be very tough they can be strict and mean and even make you cry. if your going to work there you kinda have to give up a self bit of your individuality only natural colored here no wild makeup and its very involved in your life you have meetings to go to about once a month shifts can seem a bit long you'll never have nothing to do at the job there will always been more than one thing that needs to be done.
Pros
free food when you work, good advancements and you get company presents sometimes
Cons
management is tough and its very stressful and fast paced

Store Associate (Current Employee) –  Mesa, AZ 85209June 18, 2018
It's a great company to work for , but the hours were inconsistent and although you're able to fill out your availability they were a bit iffy about it and changed it to their liking , overall the environment, the staff and the benefits including the picnics were great benefits to working there but the hours and the way they managed them was poor
Pros
Free lunches
Cons
Short breaks, sometimes no breaks

If you can't take the heat don't go to this kitchen
Store Associate (Former Employee) –  Indio, CAJune 17, 2018
You get great pay here and after working through a seasonal starting position you get pay raises depending on how well you can climb and learn new skills. Very quick paced, no relax time unless its your break. Meals are compensated and once full time employee you receive benefits.
Very strict and can be harsh.
Customers can be very ridiculous sometimes and being an employee there you always have to grit your teeth.
Guarded by security now, before was dangerous with the homeless wandering around.
Pros
Free lunch. Good hours and Great pay.
Cons
Quick paced, harsh. Uncomfortable work environment.

Good place to work
Store Associate (Former Employee) –  CaliforniaJune 5, 2018
I enjoyed my time working for this company, however, hours are not fixed and therefore very difficult to manage. Schedules are almost always out ahead of time though so planning is still doable. I did not like that if your shift was ending, you were required to stay if the managers chose to make you do so.
Pros
free lunch
Cons
management of scheduling

What I learned was...
Store Associate (Current Employee) –  Westminster, CAJune 5, 2018
In a sense you learn about how picky and ungrateful the public can be and how difficult. You're always stressed out because you're either not moving fast enough or whatever. Most the time you work, some of the time harder than anyone else and its occasionally noticed; that is if you don't have a manager that clearly doesn't know what their doing.

BUT on the flip side the shift can be have a fun-loving environment. Everyone would be singing while we work, tell jokes while all working at the same time. This truly is a great company to work for don't get me wrong. They pay better than most fast food places BUT they expect you to work harder also.
Pros
Free food after a shift and stuff every quarter you keep up the store safety rewards. Fun meetings, There are some really cool people you work with that are extremely nice and caring.
Cons
Short breaks, stressful, can cause anxiety

This job did not know how to separate business and personal which is something that did not work well for me.
Store Associate (Current Employee) –  Torrance, CAMay 30, 2018
People at this job including the managers play all the time and are unprofessional. They do not know how to separate business and personal. If one of the employees call off they would go and tell the other employees why they called off. There is no reason for a manager to tell the personal business of someone else.

Retail Sales Associate (Current Employee) –  Tucson, AZMay 15, 2018
INO is a great company to work for. They really care about their employees. It is a very fast-paced job, that pays pretty well. I wish it was easier to get full-time, but it is not, INO is mostly a part-time job. As you learn how to do different positions, you level up and get a raise, which is cool. The harder you work ,the more likely you are to move up the ladder. INO is definitely a company you can grow in/move up the ladder, and become a manager of your own store one day, it all just depends on how hard you worked.
Pros
Vision, dental, and flexible with hours
Cons
Part time, on your feet all day, frequent multitasking

I love working here! The coworkers are like siblings I never knew I needed. Time usually goes quick when working due to the fast-paced environment and constant multitasking. You get a raise every time you master a certain level of training. They have a good starting pay for being fast food.
