I worked at Jack in the Box full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

None, other than every other Friday off (corporate policy).

Cons

Morale is terrible, layoffs almost every week, top-heavy structure, management does NOT listen to employees. JIB isa sinking ship. Used to be a great place to work when run like "family" business. No more. And if you are the wrong gender (male), you are doomed. Petty and child-like place to work. Not sophisticated al all. RUN away!!!

Advice to Management

You might want to get rid of most mid-level managers and director's by actually ASKING people who work for them for their input. And the direction you are taking this company is being questioned across the board by those lower level employess you will not talk too. Good employess have been and will be leaving in droves.

    Pros

    You get every other Friday off.

    Cons

    The corporate culture is kind of scary. Multiple times I was told to "just drink the cool aide" (direct quote) when referring to getting on board with changes in the Corporate Values.

    Pros

    Every other Friday off, casual attire, and in-house restaurant for employees.

    Cons

    Poor mid- and upper- management decisions. Be careful if you want to think outside the box and contribute ideas not in line with management. Management changes their philosophy for success before employees have a chance to embrace it. Some department heads tend to hire friends over talent. And don't expect to be treated fairly if you are over 55. The new Jack does not respect loyal, hard working employees. The company is no longer the caring, respected organization it use to be.
