Great environment, friendly collaborative crew to make rushes easy. Teaches how to handle fast-paced work. All food is made fresh and to order. Management is very laid back and cooperative with time off requests and scheduling.
Asst. Manager (Former Employee) – Bremerton, WA – February 15, 2018
The food is really great and some of the people there are top notch. The pay is better than average.
That said... There are WAY to many "leaders" compared to regular crew, which results in severely cut hours for regular crew members. There also is a severe discrepancy in how to perform tasks, no clear or consistent training in daily tasks, the result being an employee unsure on the correct way to perform said tasks.
Extremely "clique-ish". Gossip and office politics seem to matter more than a good work ethic and the desire to actually accomplish a successful shift or set up the next shift for success. Some basic but highly necessary shift tasks are shirked with the idea of "I don't want to do this so I'll drag my feet and the next shift can take care of it".
These points make for a very frustrating and overly stressful work environment, much more than it should be.
employee discount on food, better than average wages for this type of resturant
shorted breaks, biased treatment of emloyees, favoratism.

Some old shift leaders were really nice and the AGM is an absolute angel, but the upper management was awful. Our GM only cared about the needs of the customers, and would ignore employee complaints and needs. I finally left because of harassment from a manager. The raises are barely anything unless the GM really likes you, and there have been threats of losing pay over discussing wages. There were some customers and workers who always brought a smile to my face, but most of them have quit or left. The food is good and the discount is nice, but the stress isn't worth it.

Taco Time Northwest, especially now since corporate took over all franchise locations is a fast food restaurant so the culture and guests that you will be interacting with is in itself the same as any other fast food restaurant. As like any fast food job there is a high turnover and management will generally have not a lot of education. Though there is plenty of opportunity to move up in management, especially if you are willing to move to the new and appropriated locations. As management do not expect to not work as a crewmember.
Food discount, very little frozen and "heated" foods

Work days are very stressful and can be crazy, I learned better customer service and many food handling techniques. Not a big fan on the environment but not a bad place to work and management is fabulous.
Cashier (Current Employee) – Silverdale, WA – February 22, 2017
Good company to work for, I have really enjoyed my time there and plan to continue for a long time. Possibly a career. I have a typical day of customer service and a specific menu. Good management, and the whole job can be hard, but it always gives satisfaction which makes it the most enjoyable.
Shift Leader (Current Employee) – Port Angeles, WA – February 18, 2017
Working at Taco Time is like working with friends and family. When there's issues, we sort them out. When there's stressful situations, we use teamwork. Following checklists to make sure everything this done and caught up. Although there are some things thatseem unfair or over looked, but no work place is perfect, and tomorrow is a new day.
Pto, long term benefits, good hours
Short breaks, repetitive tasks, customers attitude
Cook/Cashier (Current Employee) – Spokane wa – September 29, 2016
I've work at taco time on north division for almost 2 years and have been through 9 different managers. It's a good job for a first time, but not if you want a stready schedule every week with flexible hours taco time isn't for you.
Crew Member (Former Employee) – Stanwood, WA – July 19, 2016
Taco time was a fast paced fun work environment. I opened and closed. Opening consisted of mopping, prepping food, cleaning the kitchen and dishes. Closing we threw select foods away, cleaned the kitchen, dining room, and bathrooms, swept everything, and mopped the kitchen. During a shift I was either a cashier or I was making food. We had to serve the food to the guests out in the dining room.

Great place to work! Its been my most favorite job yet. The restaurant is always staffed with very friendly people. You gain experience that you can apply to any other restaurant or customer service position. There is plenty of room for advancement. Management is mostly promoted from within the store! Helps build great team working skills also. Great temporary or long term job. All food is made fresh! Delicious :)
