    I have been working at Jack in the Box part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Compared to most fast food restaurant, JITB does pay a bit better. In Louisiana, most fast food companies start employees at a hourly wage of $7.25. At JITB, the hourly wage for starting team members is .=$0.20 higher.

    Jack In The Box is an okay job for youngsters starting out wit a job. My advice to ANYONE in the fast food industry is to work hard and may your way to become a shift manager. Work as a shift manager for 2 years or so...THEN LEAVE THE FAST FOOD INDUSTRY. DO NOT STAY!!

    Cons

    Over worked
    Under payed
    Unprofessional co-workers
    Maintenance and restaurant up keep.
    Hierarchy and favoritism was definitely carried out by employers and managers.

    Pros

    Employees fun to be around. Great for learning time management. Discounts to eat here. You work in more then one area of the restaurant.

    Cons

    Shift leaders always blame crew members for everything that goes wrong. You are talked to like you are below them. The food is left to sit for hours. That's gross... Also the stores are not cleaned as I have found black mold in the soda machine. The customers get drinks from there, ewwww. You are forced to hold drive through cars for 2 minutes in order to get a better speed of service, yelled at if you don't. Also NO BREAKS!!!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give the hard workers recognition. Explain to shift leaders that if they treat crew members with respect they will do a better job.

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

    Pros

    The only pro to jack in the box is the life long friendships I have created with some of my coworkers

    Cons

    Terrible bosses(area coaches, district owners
    No air conditioning
    No one listename
    High expectations, little pay
    People
    Attitude of bosses
    People
    Etc.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look into your stores, my boss leaves to take the deposit to the bank for 3 hrs ( 5 min drive) don't know the last time I saw the area owners. When I do they never tell the crew they are doing a good job, always critical. I have worked for jack in the box since 2009. I am a full time student and employee. I hate every moment that I am there. It used to be nice when I first started. But with the new owner and the upper managment eveyone has unrealistic expectations of all the employees. My checks are barley 600.00 and I have been a team leader for almost 4 years with no opportunity to go further because "I'm not making this a career". What happened to it begins with internal serivce? That got lost with corporate. I now have to come in on my day off for a 1 hr meeting when I live and hour away, waste of my time and effort. Thanks jack. Suicide here I come.
