I have been working at Jack in the Box full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Company has great policy for worklife balance. Flex hours and schedule. A lot of nice people work here that trulely care about the company and the people.

Cons

The company is going through a lot of change right now and unfortunately has resulted in some good people to leave the company. Both voluntary and involunatary. Difficult times right now as general mood in not good but hopeful it will return to being a great company to work for.

Advice to Management

Try and get all changes completed as soon as possible. The changes have taken a big toll on morale and needs to bebuilt.

    Pros

    Great people to work with. Decent benefits. In house gym and Jack.

    Cons

    Jack in the Box used to be a great place to work. In the past couple of years the morale has taken a drastic spiral downward. It's due to the change in business model and decisions made by upper management. Downsizing is not always the best answer even if it seems more economically sound at first. Quite often when you outsource, that company will nickle and dime you to death. You also lose very valuable and loyal employees.

    Advice to Management

    Please open your eyes to what is going on in the company. You have very loyal employees who are looking for other jobs because of your poor decision making. You are ruining the company due to your personal greed. It's time for a big change in executive management.

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

    Pros

    Casual dress code, alternate work schedule (every other Friday off), if you like fast food, in house Jack in the Box. Two floating holidays additional time off (but depends on your start date whether you are entitled to both the first year)

    Cons

    They preach FEAST (Fun, Excellence, Agility, ...) but there is no love or fun there. Instead of letting employees do their job always trying to force being happy and Fun. There is a cloud of tension and stress that hangs in the air. Most offices have no windows in the CSC building. Top heavy management and most of them are micro managers. You need to be a Yes person or you will quickly be singled out and then out. Just not a feeling of being comfortable working there. Move is toward outsourcing. Very little to none advancement. NO vacation the first year.

    Advice to Management

    Let some of the upper and middle management go. Rethink company focus. Current focus is identical to the one they tried 5 years ago. Yes 18-35 do eat more fast food, but the 35+ age group is larger and they also eat fast food. Remember that families in all age groups tend to have kids and they take them to eat. Those kids tend to go back to those places as they get older and yes they have kids which they would bring back as well and the cycle repeats. But alas, Jack does not have any items for kids or anything healthy. But it really does come down to management and the overall feeling while working there.
