You might have to rethink your current career path!
Back in 2012, the Orange Country Register reported the average salary for an In-N-Out manager was over $120,000, compared to an industry average of around $48,000. As Thrillist pointed out, that's also about $5,000 more than the average lawyer makes, and you don't have to rack up law school debt to get the position.
As a manager, you're also treated to free international trips if you hit target goals, a former In-N-Out employee shared. Add in the company's generous benefits program and casual work culture and you've got a pretty sweet deal.
But you are going to have to work for it!
To be fair, it's not all smooth sailing – if you do want to be a store manager, you'll have to start from the bottom. In-N-Out only hires from within, meaning every store manager started as an hourly associate, either in the backroom, as a counter hand out, or on the clean-up crew.
Like their bosses, associates are treated pretty dang well, though. The starting salary is a minimum of $11 an hour, with some locations starting at $12.50 an hour, according to Reddit threads. Part-time workers get dental and health benefits, vacation days, and free meals while working, and can set up a 401k. Not too shabby for a first job.
While the six-figure salary may seem outrageous, it checks out across Glassdoor, Reddit and IGN threads, and the Register interview with the notoriously press-shy In-N-Out President, Lynsi Snyder. Snyder told the Register that the attractive salaries and generous benefits are part of her family's mission to maintain a family atmosphere within the company. It seems to be working – In-N-Out ranked #7 on Glassdoor's 2017 list of Best Places to Work.
