Pros

Every other Friday off, casual attire, and in-house restaurant for employees.

Cons

Poor mid- and upper- management decisions. Be careful if you want to think outside the box and contribute ideas not in line with management. Management changes their philosophy for success before employees have a chance to embrace it. Some department heads tend to hire friends over talent. And don't expect to be treated fairly if you are over 55. The new Jack does not respect loyal, hard working employees. The company is no longer the caring, respected organization it use to be.

    Pros

    They truly do hold down the spot as the best fast food chain, whether you go to eat or work there

    Cons

    Sometimes you may work long hours but this could be a pro for those who want as many extra hours

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up all the good work and continue the excellence in care for your customers and making sure they come back

    Pros

    the co-workers are ok, well some are, and some management are ok depending on the resturant...

    Cons

    Being penalized for being sick, such as having hours cut while you are in the midst of training for a promotion, only to be given an ultimatum on said promotion for asking for more hours 2 weeks in a row..

    Management being constantly saying negative things such as "we'd fail" or putting employees down, or spreading their business through out the restaurant

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    you get sick just like we do do not punish us for it, Talk to your workers not at them, don't spread personal information around the restaurant of another employee, actually listen to your employees when they try to tell their side of the story since there are two sides to every story
