The thought of flipping burgers in a hot kitchen probably won't rank among most people's ideal work environments. But it seems California based burger chain In-N-Out is trying to change that. The Los Angeles Daily News reports that the restaurant was recently named the Best Fast Food Restaurant to Work for in the 2015 edition of the Los Angeles News Group's Winning Workplaces Poll.

The company, famous for its double doubles and animal style fries, earned the distinction because of many different factors. Speaking with the newspaper, company spokesman Carl Van Fleet cites the company's higher than average starting pay compared to other chains:

"A higher pay structure is helpful in making that happen but it is only part of our approach," Van Fleet tells the LA Daily News, "It is equally important to treat our associates well and maintain that positive working environment in all of our restaurants. We do enjoy relatively low turnover and that, of course, leads to a more experienced team working in our restaurants."

In-N-Out employees are paid a starting wage of $10.50 an hour which trumps the nationwide average of $8.94.

Van Fleet also mentions that In-N-Out employees stay for the long haul, working their way up to managerial positions within the company.

"Many of our associates do decide to stay with In-N-Out Burger and eventually join the ranks of our management team," Van Fleet said. "All of our restaurant managers and assistant managers started off their careers as entry level associates and worked their way up to the positions that they have today. There are many, many In-N-Out Burger associates who have been with us for 20-plus years."

Other perks of working at the company include flexible work hours, paid vacation time, a 401k plan, and an overall employee friendly culture.
