    Pros

    Close to my house, and I love jack in the box, its my favorite fast food restaurant. And I go there often to go buy my food. And I'm try to save up money for college and major in law enforcement. Other reason is because I want to help my mom pay some of her bills and also make my own money and buying my stuff on my own and start becoming independent.

    Cons

    Try to fix out the problem and not be ghetto, if things get out of hands speak to the manager and let him or her know what happing and continue my duties

    Advice to Management

    Support and give advice to my co-workers & manages in how to make jack in the box a better place.

    Great leadership. Wonderful place to work with cross functional teams. Collaborative work environment

    Cons

    Long hours. Not too many complaints for working at this organization. Other than you want to continuously strive for more.

    Advice to Management

    Give guidance not direction. Lead by example. Think about the image of the brand and if each employee represents brand well.

    Pros

    They treat employees with respect and the number one goal is always customer satisfaction, "say yes to the guest" and its a pretty easy job.

    Cons

    Rotating schedule, but it should be expected!

    Pros

    This company and location is a great opportunity for someone who seeks to work hard and carries a strong sense for "teamwork". The amount of hours you receive is based on your performance which helps increase everyone's work ethic and also eliminates those who believe that simply showing up is their job. They offer promotion opportunities that are solely determined based on all around performance and the ability to excel in the majority of tasks at hand while meeting your speed of service quota in the midst of a very high volume atmosphere. Within my first two months of working for this company with zero prior experience in fast food I was offered a promotion to become a team leader. Thus proving to me that hard work does pay off if you're willing to give your all.

    Cons

    As with every job in America, there will always be certain things, situations, and people that can make your work environment less appealing, but as I mentioned on the topic of hours based on performance, they are also based on your attitude while in uniform. This company demands high expectations in customer service and satisfaction, as well as following procedure and even though this is definitely a pro compared to a con for me, some would see this to be a conflict ion to their preference in work environment and everyday standards.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to do what you're doing and this location will continue to excel in every aspect. There is always room for improvement simply because perfection isn't found in this field of work, but as an employee to this company, and having the opportunity to continue to gain knowledge in all categories, while having strong management of all levels who are willing to teach, I believe there isn't much more you could ask from this staff, most importantly, to simply ask yourself how dedicated you are to put in the long hard hours to move up within the company and become successful.
