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

    Pros

    Close to my house, and I love jack in the box, its my favorite fast food restaurant. And I go there often to go buy my food. And I'm try to save up money for college and major in law enforcement. Other reason is because I want to help my mom pay some of her bills and also make my own money and buying my stuff on my own and start becoming independent.

    Cons

    Try to fix out the problem and not be ghetto, if things get out of hands speak to the manager and let him or her know what happing and continue my duties

    Advice to Management

    Support and give advice to my co-workers & manages in how to make jack in the box a better place.
