    I worked at Jack in the Box part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You get to deal with a lot of different customers which is the best part of the job if you enjoy customer service. Also taking orders very quickly is also exciting especially the fast past of it all. It can get a bit over whelming but it just shows how well you handle pressure.

    Cons

    Short staffed which caused food to not get out as quickly and upset consumers. Other than that things where swell.

    I worked at Jack in the Box full-time

    Pros

    Everything. Incredible learning experience. How many people can seriously make a triple cheeseburger in less than 60 seconds? Life skills that will be with me forever I tell you!

    Cons

    Sometimes it got really sweaty in the cooking area. Also flies were literally everywhere. Cheese sometimes was hard


  7. Decent job, not great

    I worked at Jack in the Box part-time

    Pros

    My coworkers were mostly really nice. I'd heard horror stories about working in drive-thrus and fast food in general, but customers usually weren't too bad.

    Cons

    Scheduling was very disorganized. They hired anyone who applied, so a lot of my coworkers who were high school or college-aged were flaky about coming in during their scheduled shifts. They also didn't post the schedule until the night before it began, so if you didn't happen to be working when it was posted you had to call and ask.

    Advice to Management

    Become more organized, and be a little pickier about who you hire. Actually train people on cleanliness and food safety with a person, because watching the video isn't good enough to guarantee they understood.

    I have been working at Jack in the Box full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexibility with work/life balance, passionate employees at corporate level, benefits are competitive, pay is competitive

    Cons

    There is no structure for moving up in your career if based in the field. Often the responsibilities have increased without necessarily seeing it in pay right away.

    Pros

    Half off meals during break and lunch, free drinks, about 10 to 15 percent off when not working, fast environment.

    Cons

    No free meals, cannot accept tips in any form, "too many chiefs", took advantage of your schedule, unable to work with you on getting certain days off.

    Pros

    Great new buildings and locations in an area with great opportunities...Nashville. A lot of eager management personnel to work with.

    Cons

    I worked for this company for years on the west coast and there is a big difference. The upper leadership is holding a greAt concept back in the east.

    Pros

    good pay, benefits were good.

    Cons

    the franchise cute labor and food cost standards. treated employees like slaves and would expect salaried management to work for free just to make labor. they had high expectations and didn't care about your family or personal life.

    Advice to Management

    never work more then 50 hours they are slave drivers
