Are you supposed to tip the skater waiters at Sonic?

We went for the first time to day and it didn't really occur to me to tip them until I realized I had no cash..

  • Ooooooh. I misread the question. I thought it said... "Are you supposed to TRIP the skater waiters?' and I was thinking, um.. NO!! LMFAO!!!.

  • I never really did until more than one person said something to me about it. My mom and one friend were like, you don't tip them? Then, I felt really bad. Later, I found out from someone who was working there that they do get paid a normal hourly wage and tips are just extra. Most servers where I live get paid a lower servers' wage and need the tips. So, maybe sometimes I'll give them the coin part of my change, but that's it. I guess that's my compromise.

  • YES. I worked there as a teenager...we made $2 per hour, which was waitress/waiter money at the time. It's probably gone up since then but they rely on tops just like servers in restaurants do.

  • Yes. I had a friend that worked at Sonic through college and she said that they make a waiter's salary because they are suppose to earn tips. That means they make less than minimum wage. IF you don't want to tip, you should go through the drive through.
