    Pros

    Usually, managers can at least try to accomodate your schedule to balance school and work life. That isn't always the case, though. The best benefit that a job like this could give you is serving as a starting point with which you could start out your work experience. It's also possible to make some friends out of your workmates.

    Cons

    Oftentimes, managers will cut hours from your schedule to the point where it doesn't make sense to waste your time for a few hours, and then get a laughable check at the end of the pay period. Also, expect to be given additional experience over time, without a reciprocal pay raise.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I understand that you're trying to run a business and manage everything as best as you can, but try to be more personable and understanding to your customers as well. Also, and this is a biggie, treat all workers equally and fairly. There are always those who do most of the work while others lounge around and wait until their shift is over.

    Wanted to work with my school schedule

    Have your management learn better people skills with their fellow employees. They treat them like trash.

    I worked at Jack in the Box part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    they worked with your schedule, but if you want a lot of hours (30+) this is not the place to work. They cut everyone's hours the second year I was there to save money

    Cons

    as employees, we didn't work well together as a team which made work tough. the place in general was very dirty. the location was bad and attracted many rude customers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    work on your customer service and make sure your employees work well together. happy employees equals happy customers and faster service!

    Pros

    i really enjoyed how my manger was flexible with the schedule.
    great co-worker
    great place to star

    Cons

    to repetitive
    annoying customer (but some alright)
    supervisors and management are hypocrites
    there is no fairness

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    take a good look behind what your mangers are saying to the bigger bosses because what i know as a crew member there are many, plenty, perhaps to may policies and CCPs that are not being followed. just wanted to warn you and its not because i don't like Jack i really enjoyed, i really did. That being the reason why i am letting you know.
