Customer Service (Former Employee) – Adelaide SA – 15 September 2017
Most of the team member were of my age so working there was delightful, always looked forward to going to work. Learned how to work the tilt on my own pretty fast and the cleaning wasn't so hard either.
Part-time crew member (Former Employee) – Busselton WA – 11 September 2017
Working at Hungry Jacks had, as all jobs do, it's pros and cons. The on-the-job training was precise and well-formatted, giving me the necessary skills needed to perform my job to the optimum level. On the other hand, the working environment was not entirely pleasant. The manager was heavily focused on results, to the point where she did not care massively about the wellbeing of her staff, which is not ideal in a workplace. The advancement opportunities were practically nonexistent, the balance between work and home was frequently interrupted by impromptu phonecalls at varied hours demanding I come into work at a moment's notice. My fellow crew members, however, made the job not just bearable (because, at times, the job wasn't) but also, at times, pleasant.
Overall, the job was fairly nondescript, but given the opportunity, I would (not gladly, but willingly) work there again.

Hungry jacks is all about making our customers happy so everyday we learn where we went wrong on during the day to make our speed of service town slow so that we can bring it up the next day same goes for our drivthrough times
Maintenance and cleaning (Former Employee) – Gold Coast QLD – 9 September 2017
Hungry Jack's does not promote a good work environment or culture within their stores. Management are always lying and taking advantage of the fact young workers don't know their rights. Probably a good 'starter' job while in school, but in no way is it suitable for anything other than that.
It can be okay at times if left alone
Bullying, very young managers with no work/life experience. Kids managing kids
Crew Member (Former Employee) – Manly NSW – 4 September 2017
I learnt alot at hungry jacks it would have to be the best job I have done. Good staff good management was good to have something to do after school and weekends kept me out of trouble and I had money to buy my own things and not rely on my parents.
enjoy it at first was getting great hours until later on through the year I was getting less hours and a lot of stress. Starting disliking the managers and how they were treating me and decided to quit and not spend more time there
Front Counter (Former Employee) – Southland Centre VIC – 3 September 2017
I came to quickly not enjoy work, though i did get experience and free food sometimes it did make me stress a lot and being still in high school i found it very overwhelming and having to deal with bad customers was the absolute worst, one time a man was so angry he came back swearing and yelling at us. And rush hour was also so bad, and i feel that i have a better understanding of the food industry now.
Customer Service Assistant (Current Employee) – Bulleen VIC – 2 September 2017
Working in fast food is a very fast-paced environment and requires you to be quick on your toes. I was a kitchen crew member and had great crew mates to help me keep up in this environment, but management constantly under-performed; whether they are constantly taking personal calls or having frequent social conversations with the front-counter staff.
Cashier/Customer Service (Former Employee) – Werribee VIC – 31 August 2017
While employed at hungry Jacks' I developed the skill to work in a team. I have developed how to handle group task and how to work efficiently and productively in a group without wasting time and using all the time available to necessary uses without procrastinating. I have also learned how to work under pressure and how to present myself in a professional manner, while under pressure and stress.
Hospitality (Current Employee) – Queensland – 30 August 2017
The work place at hungry jacks was helpful but wasn't very profuctive and not many people do their job properly. It was a good first job but I didn't enjoy working st the place and would enjoy a new job in retail and that is productive and everything is flowing and good people to work with
Crew Member (Former Employee) – Toowoomba QLD – 30 August 2017
It was an ok place to work but the hygiene and OH&S practices were a little under par. Although I know that the managers were working towards fixing this problem. I was young and took having a stable job for granted. I am looking for a stable job.
Counter Hand (Current Employee) – Mount Ommaney QLD – 30 August 2017
A day at hungry jacks the work is fast paced and difficult but as hard it can be there are many people there to help you. The work environment is fun and playful but also serious. The best part of this job is that you meet many different people and can have many fun experiences, the hardest part of this job would be when there are big rushes and everyone must communicate and work in this fast and crazy environment.
Cashier/ Kitchen Staff (Current Employee) – Mount Sheridan QLD – 30 August 2017

Crew Member (Former Employee) – Traralgon VIC – 29 August 2017
Enjoyable career that gave me experience in a restaurant and the advantage to have a job. The day consisted of preparation of product and cleaning the work place. Learned to thoroughly clean and detail my work area. The hardest part of the job was getting everything everyone had asked to be done before it was time to go. The most enjoyable part of the job was making burgers for customers.
Team member (Former Employee) – Griffith NSW – 28 August 2017
What I have learned from Hungry Jack's is customer service. Serving customers with a smile. I don't really like the environment as people are racist. They speak their own language while in the workplace and it wasn't really nice. It depends actually.
