The job is relatively safe and we serve all kinds of people.
Crew Member (Current Employee) – Amherst, NY – March 21, 2016
I have gotten free food every shift I worked here, employees are evaluated every 6 months and depending on how we are evaluated we get a raise of 10 cents, 15 cents or 25 cents. We use chemicals for cleaning and we are sure to keep them separated based on their uses. These chemicals are sanitizer, windex, disinfectant and degreaser. We try to keep the store clean but sometimes it can take a few hours to take care of certain things like garbage because our first priority is serving customers and we're very serious about that.
Free food before or after work, guaranteed raises, friendly people.
part time only, gets so busy that much of the cleaning has to wait.
Cashier (Former Employee) – Williamsville, NY – November 20, 2015
A typical day at work was usually on the go constantly serving customers. I was able to learn how to multitask a little better. Management promoted from within which that is always a plus. My co-workers were very friendly worked well with each other. The most enjoyable part of the job for me is that I was always busy.
Cashier, Cook, Dishwasher (Former Employee) – Depew, NY – October 13, 2015
The working environment here was a constant on your toes. The motto that was held here was "if you have time to lean you have time to clean". Not that it was a bad thing because it taught you how to be very productive and being able to manage your time.
Crew Member (Current Employee) – Orchard Park, NY – October 4, 2015
I come in at 9am and prep and stock the store for the day. I am responsible for stocking and prepping all the food and supplies needed for the day. as soon as we are open, I am responsible for taking orders/cooking food/ making orders for the customers in a timely fashion.
free lunch, flexible hours
misguided management, crew members have no say in daily operations
crew member (Former Employee) – Buffalo, NY – June 23, 2015
A typicl day at work for me consist of greeting customers, getting food out on time, making orders, and taking orders. management wasn't that great. The gave low hours to hard workers. I was there for 3 years. The co-workers varied. There was no hard parts of the job. I enjoyed making tacos and interacting with the people.
Crew member/Manager (Current Employee) – East Amherst, NY – April 20, 2015
I enjoyed working at Mighty Taco because it allowed me to improve my strengths and work on my weaknesses. As a manager I gained much experience with managing employee, creating a good report with the customers and an overall understanding of how a business is run. The corporate management they display allowed me to gain an understanding on how I was expected to perform.
Line Cook/ Cashier (Former Employee) – Cheektowaga, NY – January 31, 2015
I worked with individuals each shift making tacos which were very simple to learn to prep. I learned how to fold a tao which I never knew how to do. My co-workers were very talkative and helpful to me when needed. The hardest part of the job was to actually learn what each individual taco included. My most enjoyable part of the job was taking care of customers at the drive thru window. I was able to interact with other people.
Great for students, Dangerous for intelligent individuals
Crew Trainer (Former Employee) – Lockport, NY – September 15, 2014
-A typical workday was busy; openers would come in from 8:30-9:00, prepare or cook the food, serve throughout lunch, and during the slow time (1:30-4:00), would generally clean or catch up on dishes.
-Being there for almost three years, I learned alot of great customer service skills and interpersonal skills.
-For the majority, my co-workers were great. It was usually a light atmosphere. Beware however, there are crew workers within the company who are complacent and believe that they do not need to work yet demand every privilege. Most of the managers coddle this behavior as well, yet don't respect the young and more intelligent workers.
-The hardest part of the job is dealing with irate or ignorant customers who have no character tact or appreciation for your intelligence.
-The most enjoyable part of the job was the flexibility with school and great co-workers.
flexible schedule, great co-workers, predictable day
management is generally filled with non-educated and malleable figureheads, corporate will not listen to workplace complaints
everything (Former Employee) – Town of Niagara – February 18, 2014
It's like a bootcamp. You get written up for doing your work! Management is horrible and they treat employees like garbage. The food is terrible and they don't use gloves while making the empanadas and working drive-thru. You don't want to work here.
Taco Engineer/Drive Thru Cash (Current Employee) – Williamsville, NY – November 19, 2013
This job is a fast pace environment. It can be fun but it can not fun. I've learned that if you do your job well, your experience in the job will be good. Management is nice. Just listen to what they say and you will be fine. Co-workers, it depends some do the job well, others don't. You get that anywhere you work at. Hardest part of the job is staying focus on slow days.
Crew Member (Former Employee) – Williamsville, NY – October 11, 2013
Mighty Taco is a good place to work if you like fast paced work environments with a lot of duties including, Taking orders and passing them along to the kitchen Keeping a neat and clean work area Taking out garbage, mopping and sweeping, washing windows and cleaning bathrooms. Also, everyone that works at Mighty Taco is required to take a test on the food after one week, you are expected to remember everything that goes on each food item and answer questions about each item on the test. It isn't the worst place to work but unless you like to work with fast food this job is not the place for you.
pay starts at $8.00 p/h instead of the usual $7.25
they don't give proper training before they make you do all the duties.
