    I have been working at Jack in the Box full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    --Leadership is trying to cultivate a culture of "fun, excellence, agility, simplicity, and trust", while bringing the company into budgetary alignment in regards to being now 80% franchised
    --Every other Friday off

    Cons

    --Low pay, many layoffs/early retirements
    --Very low morale
    --No career ladder

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    --more transparent communication, and more often
    --bring salaries into alignment with San Diego norms
    --initiate a Leadership Development program, illuminating career advancement/paths
    --drop the "if it isn't broken, don't fix it" mentality. Obsolete is worse than broken. If it's obsolete, fix it. If it takes 10 hours to do here, when other companies can do it in 2, fix it.

    I worked at Jack in the Box part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Tough economy--at least I was able to make some money.

    Cons

    Management was terrible. I quit after about two weeks--a month. Management trained their emplyees to disregard almost every regulation set into place by OSHA and the health department. Would get mad at me for "not being efficient enough" when I would stop to wash my hands without being asked (even though I had touched something nasty that would clearly require me to wash up) and tried charging me money for my final paycheck. They also would say extremely rude, demeaning things if you didn't understand what you were being asked to do. Also didn't train properly--they sat me in the back for about a week to watch videos on how to prepare the food, but then they just randomly threw me on as a cashier without training me whatsoever on how to do my job. That being said, they almost fired me for not doing my job properly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees with some dignity! I get it, it's fast food. It isn't exactly the most glorious thing in the world. But we're still human beings and deserve to be treated as such.
