Scheduling was frustrating and irregular but the employees and most managers were enjoyable to work with/around
Service Champion (Former Employee), Saint Marys, OH – July 26, 2014
Pros: discount and occasionally free lunches, not difficult work (ie. no strenuous manual labor)
Cons: irregular scheduling and difficult to request a day off no matter how rare
A typical day at Taco Bell would be showing up a little bit early for your shift, clocking in and immediately going to work, in my case counting the money inside the register to make sure it was all there and then taking customer orders while maintaining a clean and presentable dining room area. I learned the correct way to take a customer's order and – more... hot to properly prepare the food for when my help was needed in the kitchen. management was all great and easy to work with except for the occasional person who was hired in and left shortly after. The Co-workers were all fun to work with and easy to get along with. The hardest part of the job was being able to do anything outside of Taco Bell as the scheduling made it increasingly more difficult to schedule your day around. The most enjoyable part of the job honestly was going on break or going home as everything else was rather repetitious and boring. – less

Pros: im a manger
Cons: no breaks, no rest constant working no help
It is to much no leadership at all depends on the shift managers to do all the work. work is good but its just to much and the hole day drains a person. the best part of the day is when I get to leave and go home.
Team Member (Former Employee), Bakersfield, CA – July 24, 2014
The very fast pace is what caught my attention and made me choose Taco Bell to be my 1st job. My co-workers were very helpful with making the job easy and sometimes fun to learn my new responsibilities. So I'd have to say learning how important team work is inside the workplace.
Cashier (Current Employee), Richardson, TX – July 24, 2014
Pros: discount on food, great hours and checks over $400, free drinks, great people and friendly environment
Cons: few rude customers that order basically everything on the menu and expect it to be done in 2 minutes
Been working with Taco Bell for what will be 2 years, in November. This is my first job and I didn't think I'd like it as much as I do. People told me, when I first started it's terrible. It's one of the best. I have another job now also, but I pick this over the other. Over time, you'll get the regulars that you develop relationships with, mostly Kind – more... people. – less
Cashier/ Manager (Former Employee), Fremont – July 23, 2014
The work at Taco Bell is very repetitive. This make work really easy, but at my Taco Bell our management would inconvenience us. At least once a month something wouldn't have been ordered that were needed. The hardest hardest part of they day was dealing with some of the costumers that come to eat at Taco Bell, but that was all in the experience. The – more... most enjoyable part of the day was when i was closing up the store. – less

Pros: raises, rewards, trips
A typical day at Taco Bell we prep and cooked our foods. We practice Speed of Service and Customer Service. I learned patients and I learned how to train new Co-worker. The hardest part of the job was closing the building, thats when everyone wanted to come and order

Shift Leader (Former Employee), Glendale, Arizona – July 21, 2014
Pros: free food, breaks, happy customers
Cons: no benefits, no retirement, no pension
I would assist my co-workers whenever possible. I focused mainly on the customers and then cleanliness was second nature. I would always run the shift with a smile and watch food cost variances daily. Management was great, we all got along pretty well and rarely disagreed about situations. My co-workers were very nice to me and sometimes brought authentic – more... Mexican food for me to try. The hardest part of that job was maintaining the focus and trying to balance having a good time with working hard, but in the end, it always worked out for the best. I enjoyed the people I worked with and I learned a lot. – less
