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

    Pros

    You need hours? They'll give them to you. You want a job without an interview come work here. Of all my past jobs easiest to get by far

    Cons

    Please take your time to read this.
    -Favoritism is big here. Kiss up and you'll be the favorite.
    -No interview needed. A ex con could easily get this job.
    -If we are short on change we have to short change people or rely on getting change from a bank, PL$, etc.
    -Long hours, no break. I once had a 12 hour shift and was only able to eat for no more than 5 minutes, no one to replace you while you eat. Eat work, eat, work.
    -I've been working here for a year now and asked so many times for a raise but manager keeps postponing it, blaming it on the boss.
    -Horrible worker to manager communication.
    -Work as you learn, no video training like others places.
    -You drop food, no one saw you, it's good.
    -You're a shift lead, you handle money while making food. Did we drop a nugget out the package? She'll still touch it.
    -If you can't make it to a team meeting for new products and changes, oh well, ask someone.
    -Manager never clocks in or out. Enters late, leaves early, get his "50 hours" on his paycheck.
    -Manager hired shift lead because he was his friend, worst ever.

    Overall this is by far the worst place I've ever been at

    Advice to Management

    Better communication, advise and encourage breaks, better pay, more cleanliness, have a safe with a set amount of money so money isnt an issue.

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

    Pros

    Get to know people and get rid of shyness if your shy. You have to learn how to be working in teamwork. You have to be in time and manage your time.

    Cons

    Managers are so hard on you and i feel like it shouldnt be like that. Too much pressure is bad for us as co workers when we try our best.

    You get discounts on food.

    Cons

    This has to be the worst job that I have every worked! It's a very high stressed and demanding job. It doesn't pay enough for the stress that I deal with there. We're always short staffed all the time and the benefits aren't that great!
