    Not a bad job during school.

    Cashier/Cook (Former Employee)
    Pleasanton, CA

    Pros- Flexible hours,
    - Positive environment
    - I worked there while I was a college student and it gave me money in my pocket and provided me with a steady paycheck and flexible hours when I needed. Overall it wasn't a bad experience while I worked at the Pleasanton store (which is a nice upper-middle class city)

    Cons- Depending on the restaurant, there can be understaffing during crucial hours.
    - Pay
    -I also worked at the Stockton Ca store when I transferred schools and had a much different experience, not because of management or co-workers, but the neighborhood and clientele of the restaurant. Stockton is a notoriously bad city and while working I had to deal with many drug addicts and homeless people that wandered in the store.

    Team Leader (Current Employee)
    Murrieta, CA

    ProsGreat first job to get a feel in the workforce.
    Fun coworkers

    ConsVery stressful and very busy during lunch
    Under staff at some shifts
    Graveyard can be annoying because it is only the Shift Leader and cook.

    Great people to work with as a first job and I will miss my experiences at Jack

    Drive-Thru/Front Counter/Fryer (Current Employee)
    San Antonio, TX

    ProsEach division of labor is pretty simple, when it comes to Drive-thru, Front Counter, Fryer, Grill and can mater these individual jobs in a month time. If you are young and there are a bunch of young people that work there then it can be enjoyable.

    ConsHot near the Grill and Fryer, some of the customers can be.... well lets just say less respectable cause you are a kid, depending on the location you work the managers can sometimes be very under-qualified to be in any management position.

    Advice to Senior ManagementInsure that management is thoroughly trained to deal with customers and employees.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
