I worked at Jack in the Box part-time (more than an year)

Pros

It may provide some spending money while in school; gives you experience in the working world; manager may be able willing to work with your schedule if you're in school

Cons

Open 24/7, including Christmas, Thanksgiving, and New Years; Weekends are very hard to get as off-days; not many promotion opportunities; very low pay to work-load ratio

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Try to value your good employees. Maybe even give them a weekend day or two once in a while. Communicating with them as human beings also goes a long way.

    I worked at Jack in the Box full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    The friendships that were made through the years. It used to be a great place to work, where you were valued for your hard work and dedication. The service profit chain worked well for many years.

    Cons

    You have to be with the "in crowd" to stay working here. You can't have an opinion or you will be ostracized. Rumors that are not truth, are believed by higher management when coming from the "in crowd". Higher management preaches diversity but they don't practice what they preach.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To start looking at the great folks they have and treat them well. Don't judge based on differences in people. Start focusing on the people that drive the business not who is part of the "in crowd"
