Do Sonic employees know that they are cashing in on the roller girl fetish?

For sure. I know that out girl carhops play up their sexuality (unbutton one of the buttons on their uniform and all that) for tips, but I don't think that specific fetish is what most of the tips are from. Probably just their looks in general. Our male carhops still get tipped surprisingly well at least at my store.
July 12, 2013 on Reddit

What % of customers tip you guys? And how much in tips would you say you make?

probably around 45% typically I'll walk away with $15 but on a good night it'll be around $20, the largest amount amount I've walked away with was $30+.
