I worked at Jack in the Box full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Free drinks, casual dress code, fitness center, Jack in the Box restaurant in the building (not open to public), and pretty good health benefits...

Cons

Where do I begin? This place is going down the toilet fast! Ever since Paul (former COO) left, it's been a nightmare. The executives have no idea what they're doing and were only promoted based on who they are friends with or who they worked with in the past. They don't give a crap about their employees and unless you're in the "inner circle", you'll never have a chance for advancement.
They'll say they can't afford giving bonuses, yet I know for a FACT the CEO gets a 7-figure bonus each year. They have laid off or "encouraged early retirement" for approx. half the corporate workforce in the past year and are outsourcing as many departments as they can for the cheapest prices possible.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

There is absolutely no point in trying to give advice to management- they'll never listen and will do whatever they want anyway. In just a few years, they have managed to turn this company from one of the best places to work in San Diego, to one of the worst. So sad.

    I worked at Jack in the Box part-time for more than a 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.
