    Pros

    We could eat all of the free burgers and fries that we wanted. They even threw in vegetables like lettuce, tomato, and onion. Fun job.

    Cons

    The manager was mean. He always wanted us to work, show up on time, things like that. This one time, I was eating my lunch and he started screaming at me! He said, "You can't just eat fries off the customers' trays!"

    Advice to Management

    Red is not a flattering color. This group needs more muted tones. But I guess the red uniforms hide the ketchup stains. So, I guess keep the red uniforms. Did that help?

    Pros

    In a small department I felt like my opinion made a difference to the plans of the company despite being the relatively junior member of the team

    Cons

    There was a lot of movement in management and leadership within my department. It seemed like there was a lot of behind the scenes politics and some managers may not have been fully prepared for their roles. Compensation was on par for San Diego.

    Pros

    Busy so time will fly by, most co-workers are easy to get a long with, if you want you can get a lot of hours.

    Cons

    Too much drama it feels like high school but worse, management, no raises no matter how long you've worked there since its franchise.

    Advice to Management

    Quit being so too-faced and self centered.

    Pros

    Close to my house, and I love jack in the box, its my favorite fast food restaurant. And I go there often to go buy my food. And I'm try to save up money for college and major in law enforcement. Other reason is because I want to help my mom pay some of her bills and also make my own money and buying my stuff on my own and start becoming independent.

    Cons

    Try to fix out the problem and not be ghetto, if things get out of hands speak to the manager and let him or her know what happing and continue my duties

    Advice to Management

    Support and give advice to my co-workers & manages in how to make jack in the box a better place.
