Cashier (Former Employee), Newton, NC – November 21, 2014
Pros: half off food
At Taco Bell, they were never busy and in your down time you had to find stuff to do as far as stocking and after all that was done then you'd wait for customers to come in. I wasn't very interested in working there and they were very unorganized. I wouldn;t want to go back.
Cashier/Shift leader (Current Employee), Mobile, AL – November 21, 2014
Pros: manger meals
Cons: 30 min breaks
A typical day at Taco Bell is very busy. I've learned a lot over the past year working for this company. Being a manger or shift leader has its days abut the overall experience is great. The most enjoyable part of this job are the customers.

Customer Service Cashier (Former Employee), Nashville, TN – November 19, 2014
Pros: paying for half of our meal
Cons: the pay
A typical day includes with me working in the drive-thru or in the lobby. Being in the drive-thru was horrible, we were on a timer so it was a rush for us to get people out. When working in the lobby you where in charge of where the guest ate, the bathrooms, and cleaning in the back. Most of my managers were nice and some were not. Most of my co-workers – more... were in high school so they where kind of childish which was not enjoyable. The hardest part of my job was when they moved me to night shift which was about 9pm-5am. The most enjoyable part was some of our regular customers. – less
Cashier (Former Employee), Woodland Park, CO – November 19, 2014
Pros: half off on menu, 30 minute breaks.
Cons: always on call even when off
I worked for a year and I liked it for most of the part. There would be times however when I wished I never took the job. Ive had to deal with rushes on front counter alone and customers complained about how slow their order would be. I would be taking the blame for how long it would take them to get their meal etc. These customers dont realize we're – more... human and we can only do so much. – less
A regular productive day at work. We work first and joke later
Cashier/Cook (Current Employee), Milwaukee, WI – November 19, 2014

Cons: i usually dont take any breaks but when i do i work on my 30 minute breaks.
Working at Taco Bell you cant help but to have a little fun. The people I work with are fun, outgoing and have good sense OF humor. I learned how to work and enjoy myself at the same. The best part I like is when we close down the store because we get to go home. Working at Taco Bell I have no hard days maybe a bad day but as far as working everything – more... is pretty smooth and easy. – less
Food Champion (Former Employee), Park, KS – November 19, 2014
I was not a fan of working at taco bell, they are very demanding for a low salary job. It takes years to move up in the workplace and having to deal with the same wage until you do move up. Not a job that I would recommend for someone of higher qualifications.
Love working here, the customer base is fun and exciting, enjoyed seeing new faces and repeat faces!!!
Manager (Current Employee), Orangeburg, SC – November 18, 2014
This is an awesome brand. In my opinion it's a great start for up and coming food management majors to get a step into a high volume restaurant. It offers a very energetic work environment! Being a manager here is very rewarding, I have a lot of responsibility and my duties are many, however, the customer satisfaction makes up for all of the hard teamwork – more... put in. – less
Shift Manager (Former Employee), Moline, IL – November 18, 2014
Prepare everything form homemade. Get ovens and fryers turned on that start kitchen. Go out and get dinning room ready for costumers. from management and co workers are all family so it was all love and respected. Followed by good old home BBQ and cooking. You cant stop eating there BBQ if it saved you its so good. But I loved the environment and the – more... food and nice and home place to visit and also work. – less
team member (Former Employee), Milwaukee, WI – November 18, 2014
I was working one time on a very busy day. it was a lot of hungry people in the store. We was taking orders making food and serving people off. When it be busy it's always some one to spoiled everything. Well this lady took her order and I happen to be the one that gave her the food. She reach in to the bag and see that her order was wrong. So ask the – more... lady what did she have. She went on and on about her ordering was mistake. so I said to her we are sorry we will make you whole order over and then you can be on your happy way. I wanted to tell you that rushing and making mistakes can be toking care of fast with out a hand full of people involving they self. Just be respectful at all times. – less
