This was my first job & it used to be so much fun. Cool management & co workers. Free food during shift & was also able to bring food home for free for family. Only way to get more hours though was to be friends with the manager & if you weren't, you barely got any hours. Sometimes would work 8-9 hours without a break.
Free food during shift & were able to take free food home, fun atmosphere
Inconsistent hours, drunk customers during late night shift
Team Member/Cashier (Former Employee) – Farmington, MO – August 25, 2016
Most of the time while working here the other employees and I stayed pretty busy. Most of my co workers were friendly and most took their job pretty seriously, although sometimes most everyone slacked off and hung around the drive thru window when business was slow, which I found inappropriate. The managers did a good job with keeping the restaurant clean and making sure all customers were given great service and food. The part I liked most about working at Taco Bell was being around people and knowing that I was a big part in helping the customers receive great service and great food. The hardest part of the job was whenever Taco Bell was busy and keeping the restaurant nice and clean at those busy times.
Not a bad place to work, hard to move up and sometimes a very slow job.
Cashier (Former Employee) – Pueblo, CO – September 30, 2016
I didn't mind working at Taco Bell, but it seemed that asked to much of you for such a low level job. They were not always the most friendly they were more controlling than anything. It is a job that teens in highschool would be good for if they need cash, but not a job for people in there 20's trying to start a living.

a typical day at work usually goes great for me. i learn alot about my jobs and it helps me to strive to be better at my job. I usually get along great with my co workers and there are no issues. the most enjoyable part of the day is being there and learning all that i can. the hardest part of the job is if i dont get how to do something and it take me a while to understand.
General Manager (GM) (Current Employee) – Essexville, MI – August 18, 2016
Taco bell is growing at a very swift pace. Leadership has a solid vision for the future. Sales growth YOY has remained consistent. Taco bell values their team. In the past few years education benefits have increased making any level of education affordable for every level of the team. My first and only job. I love the environment that I get to work in each and every day.
Shift Manager (Former Employee) – San Antonio, TX – September 17, 2016
MY typical day at work is different. You're not doing the same place all the time. I learned how manage people and do reports, count money, and deposit money. My co-workers are different it depends. The hardest part of this job when your short of staff. The fun thing of this job work and laugh , smile to your customers.
making up food cause they made them wrong way or forgot to put in the bag.
Typical Entry-Level job with little to no employee appreciation
Shift Leader (Current Employee) – Keizer, OR – August 19, 2016
The people at these places are liek the food, cheap, low-quality and always coming and going. However, that makes for a great place for young adults to get a job as they learn the basics of the working world and so they can find a better job while making some money
50% off food for crew and $5.00 free food for management
Team Trainer/Cashier (Former Employee) – Columbus, OH – October 5, 2016
my experience at taco bell was bad because i was at an unprofessional store. I was working at the 1 on e. Dublin Granville rd. the customers out there were crazy, the management was bad, managers didn't do anything while everyone slaved to help the store from getting shut down at least. Dirty, failed a lot of audits, it was insane. I don't think want to work at fast food again!
Cashier/Team Member (Current Employee) – Norfolk, VA – August 1, 2016
A typical day at work would include taking orders, cleaning the dining room and assisting other team members. I learned how to work as a team and take on different challenges and responsibilities. The management is pretty cool but when its time to handle business they get right on the job. The hardest part of the job is multi-tasking when it get busy. The most enjoyable part of the job is working as a team with different types of people.
Shift Manager (Former Employee) – Cicero, IL – July 28, 2016
train employees on register and also on the food table.i learned how to make the product at a quick pace but made sure each time everything was done correctly.My co-workers were very friendly and by me being the manager we got all are work done quick but it was always done right.the hardest part was learning how to deal with rude customers but it got easy the longer i worked there.the most enjoyable part was getting the customers their food and watch them be very happy they it didnt take long.
Typical day at work includes cleaning the store (inside and out) and working on the food line or fryers when needed. I learned a lot sbout what goes into Taco Bell and what it takes to work at a food service such as itself. The management was very easy going and laid-back. They were very kind and understanding. I recomed almost anyone working with them. Co-workers were very calm and collective. Not a hostile work environment at all. Hardest part of my job was changing and desposing hot grease from the fryers. The most enjoyablepart of my job was cleaning the sidewalks and parking lot. My employment at Taco Bell was very enlightening and enjoyable.
easy short and effective hours, paid same amount as bojangle's (biweekly pay), food discount
less pay then previous job (7.35), biweekly pay, changing hot grease
cook (Current Employee) – Bronx, NY – September 12, 2016
well a typical work day for me consist of a couple of rushes throughout the day. Rushes are wen a group of customers come into the store for a variety of hours non stop but we have to constantly provide food for them, restock our lines for the food to be made and clean up all together. What i learned is how to work under pressure, being a team player, and learning to be patient with co-workers and customers with all attitudes. The management in my job take there job seriously when customers walk in and are always making sure crew members are on point. The hardest part about my job would have to be restocking when we have truck nights and the most enjoyable part of my job is the experiences i'v learned.
discounts on food
half hour breaks, customers with bad attitudes, weren't flexible wit schedule
It can be slow at times and other days can get pretty hectic; there is always someone there to help you out. I've learned that the advancement for the management position is there you must grab it if you want it, The management looks out for each other all the time, wow they are bunch of characters in that place very enjoyable group to work with. The hardest part of the job maybe the testing as well as remembering what goes in what; and the most enjoyable thing is making the different types of food.
Crew Member (Former Employee) – DeWitt, NY – August 6, 2016
Very easy to maintain work station on the steam line as it is small. I learned communication skills as the restaurant was always busy during the day and I always stayed in contact with costumers. Management acted always as part of the team and were always a good help keeping the workplace a clean and safe environment. Co workers were friendly and easy to get along with. Also the co workers were great building relationships with. The hardest part of the job was doing nothing, which is practically impossible at any job. The most enjoyable part was that it was great to have worked the steam line at Taco Bell and have fun doing it with great co workers and managers right by my side as a team.
Crew member (Former Employee) – Cornelia, GA – September 12, 2016
Typical work day started off with was me clocking in and taking orders. The work day also included cleaning my work area and preparing food. I learned great consumer service skills, communication skills, and the ability to maintain a clean working area. Hardest part of the job was dealing rude customers. The most enjoyable part of the job was the relationships I built with customers.
Cashier/Customer Service (Former Employee) – Greensboro, NC – September 14, 2016
A typical day at work was peaceful , everyone knew what they were doing and the managers were very effective at leading as well as being hands on and making sure we did what was needed. My co workers were amazing very friendly as easy to get along with. The most enjoyable part of the job was interacting with my crew members.
Overall working for Taco Bell has been a good experience
Cashier (Current Employee) – Hercules, CA – July 26, 2016
A typical day at taco bell as a closer there is seeing a numerous amount of cars and cleaning up at the end. What I learned there is how to work in the restaurant industry. Taco bell being a decently fast paced job taught me how to keep it moving and multitask more efficiently. While working there the manager at Taco Bell is really friendly I have no complaints about them. I do like the co-workers they are really friendly and nice. When working at Taco Bell as a cashier the hardest thing to deal with is the customers but that is also the most enjoyable thing seeing as you have some really nice customers.
Service champion (Former Employee) – Kansas City Missouri – July 26, 2016
A typical day at work would have a least 4 to 5 rushes that day. I learned superb communication skills and learned to multitask very well. Management was no good in the first 6 months of working there, then new management came and things got a lot better. The co-workers were for the most part decent. The hardest part of the job was when someone would call in while we were in the middle of a rush. The most enjoyable part of the job to me was interacting with the customers, I learned a lot from them as well.
The hardest part of the job would probably be multi tasking and having the ability to move at a very fast pace if you don't have those skills then it would be hard for someone to work in a job like that.
manager discounted food, getting to meet and work with new people it teaches you good people skills
short breaks, if you dont get enough hours then your pay check will not be that good.
Fast paved work environment with high standards for costumer service
Crew Member (Former Employee) – Columbus, GA – September 21, 2016
Working at taco bell was a overall pleasant experience. The only problems I had were scheduling conflicts due to other employees either now showing up, or showing up late. However, my managers always worked with us to make sure we had the best schedule possible
