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

Pros

I love the people there, even some of the customers are great! The job is demanding, but easy to get used to.

Cons

The pay is not great, the discount stinks, and the franchise operation and higher ups treat you like crap and expect too much.

Advice to Management

My store manager is amazing! The franchise operators and area coaches though? Terrifying.

    I worked at Jack in the Box part-time

    Pros

    - (personally) I like jack in the box more than other fast food restaurants
    - opportunities to advance
    - good as a first time job

    Cons

    - it's fast food :(
    - you get treated terribly by customers
    - my work hours were not very flexible
    - advancement is easy, but you're either a team member or a team leader and once you get there, that's it

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

    Pros

    Obviously, these are the places you work when you really can't find another job or are just starting out in the workforce, but I always did like the sense of family I had with my coworkers at this job.

    Cons

    There were alot of high expectations from the district manager and alot of pressure on our general manager to increase speed. We were paid 8.00/hr flat- shift leaders were paid 8.50/hr. Raises were not talked about and not possible. I understand it's a fast food restaurant, but I worked for Papa Johns in Texas and went from 5.50 to 9.50 in 2 years, and was treated like I was appreciated.

    Advice to Management

    Just because this is a fast food restaurant doesn't mean it's necessary to treat employees like they are interchangeable, even though they may be. I value working in any place and I like to consider my jobs important, even if they are at a place like Jack in the Box. We are coming to the age where opportunities for employees are more extensive-happier employees equals happier customers, and happier customers equals higher sales and positive reviews.
