    Pros

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

    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 (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.

    Listen to the employees more, they have good ideas. Also make sure they are taken care of, your turnover rates and store performance directly depend on how well you treat your employees.
