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

    Pros

    Obviously, these are the places you work when you really can't find another job or are just starting out in the workforce, but I always did like the sense of family I had with my coworkers at this job.

    Cons

    There were alot of high expectations from the district manager and alot of pressure on our general manager to increase speed. We were paid 8.00/hr flat- shift leaders were paid 8.50/hr. Raises were not talked about and not possible. I understand it's a fast food restaurant, but I worked for Papa Johns in Texas and went from 5.50 to 9.50 in 2 years, and was treated like I was appreciated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just because this is a fast food restaurant doesn't mean it's necessary to treat employees like they are interchangeable, even though they may be. I value working in any place and I like to consider my jobs important, even if they are at a place like Jack in the Box. We are coming to the age where opportunities for employees are more extensive-happier employees equals happier customers, and happier customers equals higher sales and positive reviews.

    Pros

    At least you have a job.

    Cons

    bad pay, horrible hours, and just a bad experience overall.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your workers better. The "low-level" employees are the reason any of you even get paid and you treat them like crap. Paying your workers exactly minimum wage is just telling us that if you could pay us less, then you definitely would, which doesn't exactly inspire us.
