Crew Person (Former Employee), Avon, INAugust 28, 2015
Pros: free lunches, enthusiastic employees
Cons: didn't have much insurance possibilities
Great first job, nice atmosphere, the managers could be a little harsh, but all around not bad, everyone got treated like an equal, the hardest part was it did get busy at times with being understaffed, and it was hard to please the guests that way, most enjoyable part was making the guests laugh and be happy,

Taco Bell was a good first job.
Team Member (Former Employee), Morrisville, NCAugust 27, 2015
Taco Bell taught me how to deal with a lunch and dinner rush. Also
taught me how to be the face of the company when working the
front register. There was lots of multi-tasking when working in the
drive-thru window. It was my first job and i learned a lot of responsibilities of having a job.

A Great First Job
Crew Member/Cashier (Former Employee), Champaign, ILAugust 27, 2015
Pros: Good personalities
Cons: Nothing
It was a great first job
gave me the chance to get work experience
learned things I never knew , such as learning orders how to use the cash register.
Management was on top of everything made sure we did our job and everything was up to date.
The only hard part was me working and going to school.
The enjoyable part was learning and making my own money

Fast past, multi tasking. Staying calm and getting along with others
Shift Lead Manager (Former Employee), Milwaukee, WIAugust 27, 2015
Even though the management isnt all perfect. the team memebers stayed on what they had to do when they had to do it. I would say the hardest part wouldve been multitasking and people who didnt want to cooperate.

A bit more challenging than other fast food spots
(Cashier) (Former Employee), New Orleans, LaAugust 26, 2015
This is a bit more complicated than other fast food restaurants. The menu was harder to learn because of the food was mostly foreign to me.

Productive/ Caring for customers
Shift Leader (Former Employee), Winder, GaAugust 26, 2015
Working in the fast food environment has opened the doors in regards to customer service and caring for customers. It has shown me that caring for customers and making sure they are served and attended in the right manner, assures that they will continue coming back because of the excellent service provided. I've also had to make sure the restaurant kept running in a very fashionable manner while, also making sure that the stores money was all there.

Difficult to move up into Managerial Position
Service Champion (Former Employee), Cypress, CAAugust 26, 2015
Pros: Awesome coworkers that are cashiers
Cons: No benefits, Poor pay, Hard to move up
I worked there for 3 and half years without a raise or given a managerial position. I worked as cashier and I helped as a line cook. It was difficult sometimes because customers believe their always entitled to be right. Working as cashier for a fast food restaurant definitely is mentally and physically tiring.

Just dont do it!
Assistant General Manager (Former Employee), Tempe, AZAugust 25, 2015
Pros: none
Cons: everything you can imagine
Worked at a corporate store. The corporate executives do not foster a fair, and fun working environment. Management works a minimum of 55 hour weeks and the pay is not fair. Also, be prepared to work midday shifts that will cause you to work literally all day. NO work life balance.

Don't work here
Shift Lead (Former Employee), Oakland, CAAugust 25, 2015
Very hard to move up, when you do, you give up any type of life you have outside of work. They set unrealistic expectations from managers and expect numbers to meet. If you work in an area, such as Oakland, it is almost impossible to get numbers for customer satisfaction because no matter what the employees do to "go out of their way" for the customer, it is never good enough. Some of the stores I have worked in are literally falling apart. One store that I worked in, the roof caved in and the District Manager wanted us to still keep the store opened. Sometimes that shift manager is the only one working when employees walk out, the general manager never comes in to help out. Most of the general managers are too young for the position and treat other employees like they are nothing and talk down to the older employees.

No it isn't the Mexican phone company, but a great place to work.
Training Manager and district Manager (Former Employee), Albuquerque, NMAugust 25, 2015
Pros: Free food, great fun with customers and Employees
Cons: Long hours
I managed the daily operation, to make sure that the high quality of food was coming in and going out, were the best products possible. I learned all about the fast food business and how to generate high profits, through total control of all aspects of the business. later I trained new managers and eventually, became the district manager for more that 10 stores, in the Albuquerque area I had great fun with my employees, as we tried harder and harder to make the customers experience fun and quick, with only the best of everything provided. Long hours was the hardest part of the job. But, I enjoyed my Customers and Employees.
