Part Time/Casual Work (Former Employee) – Melbourne VIC – 20 May 2018
As you get to experience everything, they make you do everything on your own without any help. I would recommend for short-term, having this job for long term is draining and it's hard to cope, with stress, school and you health.
Crew Member (Former Employee) – Tullamarine VIC – 17 May 2018
Not enough shifts and not enough pay. Managers call unavailable days. Not enough good management like MacDonald.Cutting hours so many just rostering 9 hours per week and not enough to cover the expenses.
productive and high action workplace with intensive social atmosphere if you're willing to be outgoing
Customer Service Assistant (Current Employee) – Oxenford QLD – 8 May 2018
- i continuously learn to adapt my responses to customer requests and how to solve problems on the spot - management are very willing to compromise on hours, availability and often develop beneficial and positive relations with workers, promoting a more positive workplace - hardest part of the job is the emotional toll it takes due to personal nature when unreasonable individuals target workers in relation to things out of our own control, typical hospitality - most enjoyable part of the job is the social atmosphere and how it in turn benefits the flow of delivering product
Crew Member (Former Employee) – Seven Hills NSW – 30 April 2018

Dirty and unsanitized place, bias and cheap labour
Crew member (Former Employee) – Melbourne City Centre VIC – 25 April 2018
The floor was unsanitized, infested by rats and the manager doesn't do anything about it. The manager is bias toward some other workers and doesn't help new recruits. Cheap labour, only got paid $8 an hour while peers earn $10-$15 an hour.
Crew Member (Current Employee) – Gladstone QLD – 10 April 2018
Hungry Jacks is a good place for a teenager to learn skills that will help in later life such as punctuality, a great work ethic, teamwork skills and a respect for fast food employees. The work can be stressful at times but is a good challenge, with room for growth and advancement if you wish to become a manager. Shifts can be any length from 3 to 8 hours long and the better you perform the more shifts you will get.
Manager (Former Employee) – Sydney NSW – 3 April 2018
Expected to work 10+ hours a day, and paid 8 hours. No overtime, very difficult to achieve bonuses. Meagre wage. Very stressful. Not recommended as a manager. Crew member is okay, you get paid for what you work, and is a lot less stressful.
crew member (Former Employee) – Perth – 27 March 2018
Working at Hungry Jacks was a good experience. It was my first job so therefore I learnt a lot. But I can't exactly say I was pleased with my workplace. The staff were disorganized and the management was terrible. Other than that, they were good people to work side with. Just a bit too laid back, but things were still kept well on track.
Customer Attendant (Former Employee) – Falcon Bay WA – 26 March 2018
A typical day would start early in the morning and finish mid-afternoon. Sometimes, you were asked to work longer with free-food as an offer. I learned about register and EFTPOS working, how to properly maintain a clean and safe work environment, how to work as a team and about appropriate customer service. Management was okay. The workplace culture was supportive. The hardest part of the job was standing at the drive-through window during lunch and dinner hours. The most enjoyable was when the customers were pleased and would often praise oneself to management.
