    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
