Jack was a great man and it showed through his business.
Cook, Clean, Server, Handyman. (Former Employee), Shreveport, LAJune 3, 2015
Pros: There was always peace in the air.
Cons: The days when we had too many people to count.
Everyday was the next Great food great fun. I've learned how to fry, cook, and be a man through Jack. Jack was a wonderful boss who loved everyone as family, and his staff were a true reflection of him and his great works. Some days were hard when tourist came by the masses, the hunger seemed to never stop for Jack's. Every day was just simply great though i would have never been such a hard worker if it wasn't for Jack's.

Typical Day at Work
Assistant Branch Manager (Current Employee), Moody, ALJanuary 14, 2015
Pros: decent money, rewarding feeling, running my own shift, being responsible for everything
Cons: no bonuses, high stress level, being responsible for everything
Working at Jack's, I have acquired greater responsibilities. I have learned, as a manager, that the cashiers serve the customers, and I serve the cashiers. I have learned what it's like to be depended on, instead of dependent on someone else. The hardest part of my job is making sure that everything runs smoothly; that I don't run out of food, my cashiers don't run out of money, my customers are happy and satisfied, my employees are cheerful and love their job. Basically, the hardest part of my job, is keeping EVERYTHING in check. The most enjoyable part of my job is satisfying my customers and providing them with a clean and enjoyable experience, and being able to say that I accomplished that.

MY EXPERIENCE AT JACKS
Cook (Current Employee), Meridianville, ALDecember 2, 2014
JACKS IS A FAST PACE EMPLOYMENT WHERE I HAVE LEARNED MANY HANDS ON SKILLS TO FURTHER MY KNOWLEDGE IN THE WORKFORCE. I ENJOY THE PEOPLE I WORK WITH AND I WOULDN'T BE LEAVING IF I DIDN'T NEED TO ESTABLISH A CAREER THAT WILL ALLOW ME TO BUILD A BRIGHT FUTURE FOR MYSELF. I AM LOOKING FOR LONG TERM EMPLOYMENT WHERE I CAN MAKE A HOME FOR A LIFETIME AND WORK MY WAY THROUGH THE RANKS. I THINK THAT MY BOSSES ARE HARD WORKERS AND GREAT LEADS FOR US TO FOLLOW AND THEY ENSURE WE ARE ALL TRAINED TO DO OUR JOBS TO THE BEST OF OUR ABILITIES, THE HARDEST PART OF THE JOB IS GREASE CLEAN UP AND CHICKEN BIN CLEANUP BECAUSE I DON'T LIKE STRONG ORDERS BUT I WORK MY WAY THROUGH IT.

Fast and busy on most days.
Manager (Former Employee), McCalla, ALNovember 26, 2014
I come in at 3:30 in the morning and begin my daily task. I learned a new type of position in training for a management position. All managers have a different way of doing things. My co-workers and I work as a team every day. Making sure I could perform my duty as a front line cook was done in a timely manner was hard to do on Sundays. When I could train some one to do the things I was able to do.

Jack's
Hostess (Former Employee), Montgomery, ALNovember 13, 2014
Pros: long hours, nice staff, good managers
Cons: fast food, rude customers
A typical day at work was fast moving customer service. That was fairly enjoyable work. I learned how to help customers fast, and how to deal with unpleasant customers. My managers were, for the most part, fair. My co-workers kept to themselves, but enjoyed talking with everyone occasionally. The hardest part of my job was dealing with unpleasant customers. The most enjoyable part of my job was working with everyone.

Being Productive
part-time cashier and customer service specialist (Current Employee), TrussvilleSeptember 15, 2014
Pros: 401k, uniforms, breaks
Cons: n/a
A typical day at work is greeting customers and making sure their happy. There is always something you can learn at Jack's whether it's making biscuits or whether it's your first time on the grill. My co-workers are hard working and no how to work together to get the job done. The hardest part of the day is trying to clean up when were busy but when everything is neat and in order it's not so hard. The most enjoyable part of the job is good customer service.

CREW MEMBER (CASHIER) (Current Employee), Opelika, ALJune 12, 2014
A typical workday consisted of preparing for the breakfast crowd (I worked morning shift) and making sure we had everything stocked for frontline. The hardest part about this job is dealing with customers and co-workers whom can be VERY RUDE AND DISRESPCETFUL at times for NO REASON. The best part about this job is working with managers that actually work.

Very exciting environemnt to work in.
Cashier/Cook/Server (Current Employee), Columbus, MSApril 1, 2014
Pros: half pprice lunch.
Cons: short breaks.
A typical day at work would consist of entering work. I start by clocking in and see what kind of work that lies ahead of me. I've learned so many new things; running a cash register, making a burger the way the customers want, the Jack's way of cleaning. And so forth, as far as my managers they are very strict and I enjoy the company. I take heed to the advice that they are passing on towards me. Because I know as a manager they wouldn't lead me in the wrong direction. My co-workers are easy to get along with, I never let them interfere with my work. The most hardest and enjoyable part of my job is when having to deal with very rude customers and I get to kill with kindness by being nice.

Jack's was overall an okay place to work
Cashier (Former Employee), Fyffe, ALOctober 17, 2013
Pros: %50 off lunches, flexible hours
Cons: not enough workers, salary
A typical day at work for me was taking orders, making them, cleaning, helping anybody that needed to be helped.
I learned that I definently don't want to be stuck in a fast food job.
Managment was okay, they didn't really thank anybody for working hard and would leave the store to smoke when we where super busy and not come back in till the rush was over.
The co-workers we fun and friendly, but most were unwilling to work and I would do their job for them.
The hardest part of the job was working so hard and not really being appreciated for it.
The most enjoyable part of the job was being around friendly people.
