Some tough times - but still a great company

Disingenuous Executive Leadership team

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Jack in the Box full-time for more than 10 years

ProsDecent insured health benefits package

ConsArrogant, uninformed leadership team. Myopic, ethnocentric worldview. Utterly transparent, self-serving interests that protect the status-quo and upper management's many entitlements and fat paychecks.

Advice to Senior ManagementSeek first to understand - collaboration, trust and open communication are key. Actions speak so much louder than empty words and promises. Lastly, it's not the how pretty the package is wrapped, but the contents that count.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Need to escape

Crew (Current Employee)
Boise, ID

I have been working at Jack in the Box full-time for more than 5 years

ProsSome cool co-workers. That's about it.

ConsEverything you can think of. Franchise does not offer medical benefits. I haven't seen a raise in over 3 years. Constantly screamed and lectured at. Will not be staying at this company much longer, saving up to move away to a state that doesn't have Jack in it. Customers are very rude and demanding. Schedule always changing. Expect cold shoulder/not understanding from upper management when you don't make the numbers.

Advice to Senior ManagementLearn to communicate better. It's not always the employees fault for everything that goes wrong. Customers are drunk idiots at night.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

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

I have been working at Jack in the Box part-time for more than 3 years

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
