I worked at Jack in the Box full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Corporate side great benefits and home life

Cons

Operations is ran by a bunch of idiots and while there are people with great knowledge and experience are let go. Company did a restructure and outsourced the Auditing department and several other departments many people were let go.. It is all about who you know to stay in the corporate side. Operations... do not I repeat work as a RM for this company you are worked like a dog and treated like a dog. There is NO service and profit chain anymore...

Advice to Management

Upper and senior management you don't have a clue how to run the business and in time it will show on your bottom line. Quit changing every 3 seconds Jack was a great place to work when Paul was in charge

    I worked at Jack in the Box full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Free drinks, casual dress code, fitness center, Jack in the Box restaurant in the building (not open to public), and pretty good health benefits...

    Cons

    Where do I begin? This place is going down the toilet fast! Ever since Paul (former COO) left, it's been a nightmare. The executives have no idea what they're doing and were only promoted based on who they are friends with or who they worked with in the past. They don't give a crap about their employees and unless you're in the "inner circle", you'll never have a chance for advancement.
    They'll say they can't afford giving bonuses, yet I know for a FACT the CEO gets a 7-figure bonus each year. They have laid off or "encouraged early retirement" for approx. half the corporate workforce in the past year and are outsourcing as many departments as they can for the cheapest prices possible.

    Advice to Management

    There is absolutely no point in trying to give advice to management- they'll never listen and will do whatever they want anyway. In just a few years, they have managed to turn this company from one of the best places to work in San Diego, to one of the worst. So sad.

    I worked at Jack in the Box part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    It may provide some spending money while in school; gives you experience in the working world; manager may be able willing to work with your schedule if you're in school

    Cons

    Open 24/7, including Christmas, Thanksgiving, and New Years; Weekends are very hard to get as off-days; not many promotion opportunities; very low pay to work-load ratio

    Advice to Management

    Try to value your good employees. Maybe even give them a weekend day or two once in a while. Communicating with them as human beings also goes a long way.
