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

Pros

-Great gym on site
-Cafeteria on site-unfortunately it's a Jack in the Box
-Alternate work schedule

Cons

-Not part of the "in-crowd"
-Ideas not taken into consideration
-No communication from manamgement
-Management trying to run the department without knowledge of subject
-Employee's are just a number to executives
-Forcing out employee's with tenure, either by position elimination or early retirement
-People aren't helping each other anymore. Afraid they may be the next person on the chopping block. If you are part of the 'In-crowd" you don't have to worry about this.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Practice what you preach. If you are trying to get away from the power role, then why do you let your managers and directors run amuck stomping their feet until the employee submits to their point of view. Lastly, take a serious look at that in crowd nonesense. It can really hurt a department.

    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.
