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

Pros

* Corporate really has a solid business model
* Management was always fair and well trained
* Fast paced environment and rarely dull- opportunities to work all store stations.

Cons

* Management expects allot out of you. Unless your on break, you better have your hands busy.
* Pay was low. I think I made min. wage.

Advice to Management

Keep up the good work. I loved working for JITB Would have stayed longer for more pay.

    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.
