I have been working at Jack in the Box full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Great people to work with. Decent benefits. In house gym and Jack.

Cons

Jack in the Box used to be a great place to work. In the past couple of years the morale has taken a drastic spiral downward. It's due to the change in business model and decisions made by upper management. Downsizing is not always the best answer even if it seems more economically sound at first. Quite often when you outsource, that company will nickle and dime you to death. You also lose very valuable and loyal employees.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Please open your eyes to what is going on in the company. You have very loyal employees who are looking for other jobs because of your poor decision making. You are ruining the company due to your personal greed. It's time for a big change in executive management.

    I worked at Jack in the Box full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Casual dress code, alternate work schedule (every other Friday off), if you like fast food, in house Jack in the Box. Two floating holidays additional time off (but depends on your start date whether you are entitled to both the first year)

    Cons

    They preach FEAST (Fun, Excellence, Agility, ...) but there is no love or fun there. Instead of letting employees do their job always trying to force being happy and Fun. There is a cloud of tension and stress that hangs in the air. Most offices have no windows in the CSC building. Top heavy management and most of them are micro managers. You need to be a Yes person or you will quickly be singled out and then out. Just not a feeling of being comfortable working there. Move is toward outsourcing. Very little to none advancement. NO vacation the first year.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let some of the upper and middle management go. Rethink company focus. Current focus is identical to the one they tried 5 years ago. Yes 18-35 do eat more fast food, but the 35+ age group is larger and they also eat fast food. Remember that families in all age groups tend to have kids and they take them to eat. Those kids tend to go back to those places as they get older and yes they have kids which they would bring back as well and the cycle repeats. But alas, Jack does not have any items for kids or anything healthy. But it really does come down to management and the overall feeling while working there.

    I worked at Jack in the Box full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    used to have a culture of taking care of their people and listening to their idea's without reprisal. Actually lived out the Mission to the best of their abiities.

    Cons

    If you have an idea that is not in line with upper management or disagree with the direction being taken you either step back into line or your days are numbered.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be honest and forthright and truly listen to your people. Stop the parades of management (bosses and their bosses and their bosses) walking tours expecting honest feedback. Look at your turnover numbers!!!!
