Crew member (Former Employee), Rochester Hills, MI – April 25, 2014
Very friendly and respectful environment, I worked hard in that fast pace environment, that store is the busiest TACO BELL corporate in USA. In less than a year of full time work (7months), I was proposed – more... to become a manager. I learned a lot, I was very multi-task person I used to do the prep(cold and hot), frying different items, cleaning the dining room, serving food to customers,working on line, taking orders, and handling cash at the register. I learned how to do breakfast starting early morning as well. – less
Contracted Service Desk Analyst (Former Employee), Irvine, CA – November 6, 2013
I would work the night shift from 6pm- 3am, and take 25-30 calls a day. I was able to be introduced to Lynux and how it works with their registers. Management was great, and was available with any questions – more... I had. Hardest part of the job, was encountering something new everyday. Issues that the restaurant encountered were new to even employees that were there for years. I just had to learn how to relate the issue to similar issues that I've dealt with before. – less
ended as a asst.mgr (Former Employee), deer park,tx-center st. – September 29, 2012
Pros: great time meeting alot of good people
I began with Taco Bell Corp. In1991,I left for roughly 10yrs to work for 2 Franchises they didn't pay as much as corp.but they treated their people better and showed their appreciation by giving a Chistmas – more... party and sometimes holiday bonus. I came back to corp in 2005, I worked with 2 great GMs they were the best that I worked wit.h in yrs. Then a new GM was put in the previous GM and I thought we would be getting promotions but were passed up. I always hoped on being a GM for corp.as a lot of my friends were a lot of us had 20+yrs. Compared to a GM from outside. Experience doesn't matter anymore its who sucks up more and well like more – less
Packaging Analyst, Engineering (Former Employee), Irvine, CA – July 31, 2012
Pros: free lunches, dinners, off-sites, lots of recognition
Cons: undefined career path for my position
I loved working at Taco Bell / Yum Brands! I ended up leaving because I got married a relocated for my husband's job. The plus side of working there was that there were a lot of processes in place that – more... I have since found to be invaluable at other companies I have worked for. There was a lot of activities designed to build teams and enhance the team moral when I was there. I didn't appreciate how much fun we had on off-sites that were created by teams whose only goal was to identify these activities. There are other teams whose sole purpose is to recognize people for doing a good job. At the time we used to raise money for charities and do community service as well, some on the clock, some off. The best part about being there is that culture really does create bonds / teams that are long lasting. I have not worked there for years and still see ex-coworkers on a monthly basis. The downside - there were occasionally projects that required that you work extra long hours or over the weekend. There were also situations that might pull you away from a vacation. I felt like the rest of the time that it wasn't crazy made up for the times that it was. I traveled a lot, in spurts and that was a drag because I always managed to miss something cool that was going on at work. Also, because my position did not exist before I started working at Taco Bell there was no defined growth for me. I will say that I lobbied for a promotion and because the head of engineering listened when I presented my case, I got it. – less
Pros: they have the complete package, excellent leadership, goals and objectives, benefits, incentives, collaboration, and cafeteria on premiums.
I had a great experience working at Taco Bell Corporate. Excellent employee benefits and employee programs. I started out at the restaurant in high school transferred to Product Development Department – more... later to be called Research and Development and now I understand this department is under Marketing.
Exceptional professional environment and they offer professional development for employees.
I still keep in contact with many former colleagues who are now lifelong mentors and friends. – less
