    I have been working at Jack in the Box full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Full time is available. Often if you request a day off the manager will do everything that she can to get you that day off. Lots of friendly co-workers and customers. There is a high chance of a set schedule. And if you are willing to follow the rules and show up on time long term employment is available. Also, if you show that you are a hard worker you can get promoted pretty easily.

    Cons

    The hours can be long, especially during the summer time with all the minors who like to call out. Often people are asked to work extra hours due to call outs. There were other times where we were understaffed. FYI Jack in the Box is open every day and is often the only restaurant open on Christmas and Thanksgiving which can sometimes be extremely busy. The management is ok but often since the location I was at was not as busy as some of the Bellingham stores a lot of the other restaurants would come and take a lot of items and since the manager did not order much you will get a lot of customers coming in angry and blaming you for this issue.
