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

    Pros

    It's easy to be welcomed into the Jack family. My fellow team members were always nice and my regulars were always so sweet.

    Cons

    Some customers are down-right rude. Although my coworkers were nice there are times that people get too frustrated at Jack in the Box. It is fast food, but it is never worth getting angry or yelling. Customers would rather have helpful and nice employees deliver there food after a 7 minute wait than a frustrated drive thru employee rushing them to get out of the drive thru.

    Pros

    Corporate has their demands so the franchise operator doesn't totally mess up a good name!

    Cons

    The franchise operator doesn't have savvy area management. They are hiring the least capable people so that they keep their job secure. They don't want to pay their employees what they are worth, they mostly treat them like they don't know you. They love to play favorites and they run short handed because of lazy management and greed. I am betting that sales are soft and certain management don't come to work on-time and leave early. Also upper management chasing their own tail trying to patch holes and do their little reports and graphs that do nothing but prove that you are clueless and lazy too!

    Advice to Management

    Franchise owner is placing trust and taking the word of people who may just need job security at his expense. So good luck with food safety when you don't staff and train properly. Also, stop relying on the original hind end kissers...time to grow up and improve.
