    Pros

    Great Snack Breaks! We had lots of opportunities to eat yummy burgers. Sometimes we had parking lot parties after work and met all of our friends outside.

    Cons

    Not enough snack breaks. We had to punch a clock and clean greasy floors in the back kitchen. It was sometimes a real challenge.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give more snack breaks

    Pros

    The company's been around for decades. It's centrally located in Kearny Mesa, which is convenient. Traffic isn't too bad and they do have benefits.

    Cons

    Chews employees up and spits them out. If you want to keep looking over your shoulder in fear of being outsourced day after day, this is the place for it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't pretend to value your employees one minute and expend your efforts to outsource them all the next.

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

    Pros

    It 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.

    Cons

    Your 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 ManagementAdvice

    Treat your cashiers and cooks with a little more respect and watch it go a long way.

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

    Pros

    The possibilities of advancement are very good. Great communication from the higher management. Benefits are better then most. Good food

    Cons

    Having it be a 24 store definitely builds stress. Having to pay to much for insurance. Very limited resources. Unreachable goals for bonuses

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better promotions
