    I have been working at Jack in the Box full-time

    Pros

    Health care, vision, and dental are very affordable. In this particular franchise management is very lax.

    Cons

    Salaries have not kept up with inflation or competition. Even McDonald's and Taco Bell franchises are offering tuition assistance and 401 K. Our budgets are outrageously skimpy and it deeply affects morale and customer service. We generally do not give raises to crew members. There is NO structure. Exempt managers are expected to work overtime with no compensation on a weekly basis. Sometimes we don't get to use our vacation because the restaurants are so demanding, and our vacation days expire.
