    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.

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

    Pros

    The only GOOD thing about working here is the fact that I don't have to travel a lot. It is a 10 minute walk- 3 minute drive.

    Cons

    Terrible managers, as a consequence terrible employees, bad working ethics, no customer value, no VALUES in general. Working shifts are a mess, schedule gets changed at least five times before the next working week.

    Advice to Management

    I would recommend management to create better working conditions, hire people who can contribute to the TEAM, and Do Not hire people to do the job that you as manager should do. Be strict yet flexible, firm in your decision. I understand schedules are tough, but it is very depressing to have to change it multiple times- yet you ask that employees to perform better, and you still ask why you have a lot of call ins. Remember!!!! Managers are our leaders, we represent YOU, if you don't like it, ask yourself that question. DM do your job!! if something isn't right in one of your restaurants, find out why? Don't ask management because it may be them, find out YOURSELF!!!
