I have been working at Jack in the Box (more than an year)

Pros

The system they use has been well engineered. Stock is easy to access and keeping the food flowing takes only 4 people. The training they provide is more than thorough.

Cons

Schedule changes for the week were done without employee knowledge or input. Had 2 GMs that both could not do a truck order. Two to three items would be out of stock for a week. Team leaders worked 40-60 hours on the line while the GMs came and went just to have someone in the office. Short numbers were scheduled to keep labor cost down.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Grow up! Learn about consistency and leadership so there can be a little solidarity in the crew. For goodness sake if you want to be an example or a leader at a fast food restaurant first learn how to make the food then work to do it fast. Do not play playground politics while expecting a mature crew to respect you.

    Pros

    It a easy job to make easy money and the training is easy to catch on really fast and plus you aint got to bring lunch

    Cons

    The things that did not please me was the leadership was not good it felt like you where working as one not as a group and when you ask question the could not be answer. On your days off the would call and ask if you can come in or make you come in and when you had to leave for a good reson the act like the could not help you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you expect your team to work right the treat them the way you wanted to be treated. Help out when somebody need to help instead of seating at your desk. The last thing stop acting like your better then the works just cause your in a manger
