    I have been working at Jack in the Box as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Great insight into the company, with managers who are willing to answer all questions. Also has a very strong company culture.

    Cons

    Only part time positions are available for internships. But other than that, no bad feedback other than it's a pretty competitive position.

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

    Pros

    Very people oriented environment that emphasizes work-life balance. The old culture is starting to get with the times, slowly. Big emphasis on personal growth and development.

    Cons

    Things move slowly, and benefits are lacking, if you're not motivated by your role it's easy to look elsewhere or be poached by the competition.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the culture change going, embrace the millennial workforce, and fix technology and process issues.

    I worked at Jack in the Box

    Pros

    If you like working with people that know what they want from their career, this is the place

    Cons

    Get a life, find a better career - that's what I was told by one of the coworkers and this is exactly what I did. No regrets.

    I worked at Jack in the Box part-time

    Pros

    - (personally) I like jack in the box more than other fast food restaurants
    - opportunities to advance
    - good as a first time job

    Cons

    - it's fast food :(
    - you get treated terribly by customers
    - my work hours were not very flexible
    - advancement is easy, but you're either a team member or a team leader and once you get there, that's it
