    Pros

    Good people, good food, a great discount. This company at least keeps morale up with a light hearted atmosphere. Its really enjoyable even during high stress moments.

    Cons

    Pay and benefits suck. They also have a tendency to start laying off part time help when the sales begin to slump at various times of the year.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your workers more and provide a better benefits package. Also a little job security wouldn't hurt things, people like to know where they will be in a month or two.

    If you are a good worker, you can get many hours. Interacting with team and customers makes the day go quicker. Everyday is different

    Appreciate your employees. If you see them doing good, call it out. If you see them doing bad, pull them to the side and let them know. People like to feel they are making a difference, even at Jack.
