    Pros

    3 dollars worth of food for lunch

    Cons

    Rude customers, stressful, bad team leaders, not enough training,

    Advice to Management

    No one can have a timer on them for 5 minutes and then have their team leader yell at them for making the wrong shake then tell them theyre being slow. Have reliable team leaders that are able to train new emplyees instead of being rude and not wanting to help while there's a rush. Stop pushing people to be faster then complain about the errors. You can't be fast and be perfect at the same time. Worked here for 6 months then I was ouy. It was out of necessity.

    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

    Pros

    50% off meals, free if team leader. You can make a lot of money if you work for it and do overtime Get promotion fast

    Cons

    If your a team leader you get to handle all the mad customers you get left in charge by yourself even if your no experienced yet and the management doesn't help you at all your always understaffed and you don't even get all your breaks some days if its really busy

    Advice to Management

    Help out your employees if they need it and if they call you in the night it is probably important and actually manage your facility

    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.
