    Pros

    Jack in the Box has a great professional culture. Their targets are similar to other fast food concepts but they respectfully help you get to those targets the right way

    Cons

    The menu is large and the full menu is served 24 hrs a day. It can be hard to balance speed of service with food cost selling so many different items.

    Advice to Management

    Raise the price on tacos and allow cars to be parked at manager discretion

  2. Fulfilling, challenging, relaxed pace, great work/life balance
