Advice to ManagementAdvice

I am a college student that is working part-time, and it is very discouraging when people that have been working for years at Jack in the box make new employees feel like they are idiots. I am the only college student, and the others make it seem like only working 6 hours a week is a bad thing. I am aware of the fact that many people do depend on jobs like these to support their families, but it is not right single out people who are seeking out a higher education.

    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.

    I worked at Jack in the Box part-time (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.
