In addition to the benefits listed above, our crewmembers get paid for 4 hours of community service per month at any non-profit organization. Employees have opportunities to earn regular merit raises and enjoy a high-paced, team based working environment.

Dick Spady founded Dick’s Drive-In with the following business philosophy:
Step 1: Make a profit
Step 2: Invest in your employees
Step 3: Invest in your community

Dick’s Drive-In is as committed to our employees as we are to serving quality food fast and inexpensively. Although this commitment costs more in the short-run, the investment pays off. Our employees reward us by working hard every day and staying with us for a long time. We are proud to have one of the lowest turn-over rates in the industry. Many of our employees have worked for us for over two years!
