It made my life seem like one very long day.

Cashier (Former Employee)
Huntington Beach, CA

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

ProsIt was a great job for a sixteen year old working part-time while still in high school. The discount on food was also a plus.

ConsYour clothes, hair, and body all smell like the deep fryer. The pay was not great given the amount of messes you had to clean up.

Advice to Senior ManagementTreat your cashiers and cooks with a little more respect and watch it go a long way.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

A lot of hours not enough pay.

Restaurant Manager (Current Employee)
Cincinnati, OH

I have been working at Jack in the Box full-time

Prosno organization . They don't back there Store Managers. Jack will let employees and team leads no call no show and even quit (walk out in the middle of the shift three times)
 then bring them back.

ConsYou are constantly running a shift with one or two people, includes fryers, grill, assembly, D-thru front cash and still expected to hit sos

Advice to Senior ManagementThink long and hard before you take the position, Your life is there's never a weekend off. supposed to have 5 personal days, five sick days, but if you take one they will write you up for missing a day

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Its Exhausting and they do not respect when you feel sick nor when is a family emergency, there is a lot of favoritism.

Cashier (Current Employee)
Indio, CA

I have been working at Jack in the Box part-time for more than 3 years

ProsThere is nothing good about this job.

ConsYou are over worked and no matter how good a job you do, you don't get rewarded or praise just "Thats your job" but you need to miss work they give you a warning for pointless reasons. They do not care about your problems on the side even if it's personal and if you are sick you better take some medicine because there is no way you are missing. I regret ever applying at this restaurant.

Advice to Senior ManagementSet some boundaries with the power of the supervisors.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
