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

Pros

It is not a difficult application process. Even with very limited work history and no education it is pretty easy to get the job and work it long enough to get a better job. Also it is usually a fairly fast paced dynamic environment and can be a decent place for more high energy people to work.

Cons

Graveyard shifts were often busy, and so understaffed that it was almost impossible to take breaks. The buzzer over the drive-through window was incredibly loud and would usually make it more difficult to hear customers orders which was ironic because the buzzer was intended to encourage us to work faster.
Between the drive through buzzer, timers for the grill and friar, and dysfunctional headsets I would often end up going home with a ringing in my ears that would disrupt my sleep. My hearing has literally never been the same.There is also very little real opportunity for advancement.

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

    Pros

    Great Snack Breaks! We had lots of opportunities to eat yummy burgers. Sometimes we had parking lot parties after work and met all of our friends outside.

    Cons

    Not enough snack breaks. We had to punch a clock and clean greasy floors in the back kitchen. It was sometimes a real challenge.

    Advice to Management

    Give more snack breaks
