    Pros

    Jack in the Box has a great professional culture. Their targets are similar to other fast food concepts but they respectfully help you get to those targets the right way

    Cons

    The menu is large and the full menu is served 24 hrs a day. It can be hard to balance speed of service with food cost selling so many different items.

    Advice to Management

    Raise the price on tacos and allow cars to be parked at manager discretion

    Pros

    Employer help/benefits is a plus. Stay busy for the most part.

    Cons

    Not much opportunity to rank up in position.

    Advice to Management

    Try to recognize employees that are actually trying hard and putting a lot of effort. Even if it was a small pay raise, it would be fine.

  7. Decent money.

    Pros

    They are a motivational company. Guest focused. They want to get it right.

    Cons

    Hours of work, lack of resources and support. Training system and time allowed for training of team and Shift Leaders is defeating. Quality Shift leaders and assistant managers are limited at best.

    Advice to Management

    Find hours for training not the current labor guide. Invest money into your Shift Leaders and assistant managers as they make up over 100 hours of guest experience each week.

    Pros

    You can raise in rankings quick if you show improvement.

    Cons

    Don't expect a pay raise unless you get promoted and even then.

    Treat your employees like humans instead of machines
