The managers were really great, they were supportive, the crew was close because of the small size. We all worked a lot and though it became repetitive, at least there was someone to talk to about it.

Taking Charge
Shift Supervisor (Former Employee), Cody, WYJuly 25, 2015
As a shift supervisor I was in charge of making sure that everything ran smoothly on the nights that the night manager was not there. I made sure everyone knew where they were to be for the night and what all tasks needed to be accomplished. Working here I was able to hone my skills as a leader.

Lead Crew (Former Employee), Sioux Falls, SDJuly 15, 2015
Pros: 50% discount, employee of the month
Cons: constant change to recipes and policies
You at some point through out the day got to do it all from cooking, to taking orders, prepping food, and frying, which meant that you were never really bored. We had a lot of co-workers come and go for various reasons but you get to meet and enjoy a lot of different people.

Pros: Discounted Food

A day at work involved cleaning, prepping food, store, money, etc. I learned how to work in a more timely fashion. I worked hard to make my way to management and keep my team on track. My co-workers and I had a fun relationship. The hardest part of the job was dealing with dishonest customers. I enjoyed the down time between rushes.

Taco Johns was a great first job.
Cashier/Cook (Former Employee), Havre, MTMarch 26, 2015
A typical day at Taco Johns usually consisted of taking orders, preparing them, cleaning, and duties such as opening and closing out the tills.

Taco Johns was my first job so I defiantly learned a lot here. I learned basic skills such as working with tills and have expanded my knowledge of counting money.

I loved working with my co-workers there but the management could have been better. There was only one full time store manager that actually worked in the store and did all the scheduling so of course that would lead to a lot of stress on one person. But other than that it was all – more... great.

The hardest part of the job was just the fact that I was working during school and they didn't have enough employees to cover both stores at all times so I was often called in on days when I had a lot of school work to do. Or I was going to high school full time and working 35+ hours a week due to lack of employees. But the management did a great job at fixing that problem so the kids in high school didn't have to choose between getting school work done and working long hours.

The most enjoyable part of the job was defiantly working with the people I did. We really did work as a team and got stuff done quick with great quality. I also got a chance to be a shift leader which taught me a lot and i enjoyed the challenge. – less

Shift Manager (Former Employee), Pierre, SDMarch 21, 2015
Pros: free meals
Cons: short breaks
Loved working at taco john's. The pay was good, and the employees were competent. The only problem I had was the lack of communication between shifts and managers, and the lack of any form of punishments, write-ups were meaningless and laughed upon.
