No burger chain in America inspires devotion among its fans quite like In-N-Out. And now, it appears that the west coast-based burger chain also has a lot of happy people behind the counter too. In-N-Out lands at number four on Glassdoor’s list of the best companies to work for in America — that’s one slot higher than Google.
The ranking is based on reviews by current and former employees of the chain. In-N-Out has a 4.3 out of 5 point overall rating, based on 977 reviews. 92 percent of workers would recommend the company to a friend, and 97 percent approve of 35-year-old CEO Lynsi Snyder, whose grandparents founded the chain nearly 70 years ago. In-N-Out has a starting wage of $11 per hour, and the company offers paid vacations, a 401(K) plan, and health insurance.
In an interview with Glassdoor, Snyder explains a bit of her management philosophy: “It is my intent to let our leaders know at every opportunity how proud I am of them, of how they treat our In-N-Out family and of their achievements that allow our company to continue to grow and be successful.” Snyder began working at an In-N-Out location in Redding, CA when she just 17 years old. “The experience was priceless — I learned the importance of attention to detail and providing customers the product and overall experience they’ve paid for,” she remarks.
In other In-N-Out news, the company is taking a major swing at Colorado with 50 new locations planned to open in the Centennial State over the next few years. And In-N-Out’s CEO just listed her 18,687-square-foot mansion in the San Gabriel Valley for $19.799 million.
