    Pros

    You will often get 30-40+ hours per week, whether you want them or not. Many part-time employees quit because of this.

    Cons

    Extremely variable pay among one class of employees.
    Management has favorites and enemies and you move up accordingly.

    Advice to Management

    Corporate needs to take long and hard look at who they are allowing to run these stores; managers are often greedy and one-track-minded.

    Pros

    Jack in the Box has a great professional culture. Their targets are similar to other fast food concepts but they respectfully help you get to those targets the right way

    Cons

    The menu is large and the full menu is served 24 hrs a day. It can be hard to balance speed of service with food cost selling so many different items.

    Advice to Management

    Raise the price on tacos and allow cars to be parked at manager discretion
