    Interview Details

    It was a long hiring procedure. There wasn't a necessary interview just a phone cal with a couple of questions. Then you go to training for a couple of days a week and don't get paid the full time. Also uniforms are not the right size.

    Applied online and I got a call a couple of days later. When I went in for the interview, there were people being interviewed already so I had to wait. The interview was really easy, I just had to fill out a background check form and and asked me a couple of questions.

    Taco Bell Team Member/Cashier Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Blaine, MN
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Blaine, MN
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a weekinterviewed at Taco Bell in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    The day I went to turn in my application, the assistant manager gave me an interview on the spot. It was very quick and simple. She said she would like to give me the job and she said to come to an orientation the next day at 7pm. An hour after the interview, she called me and said "Oh yeah, you have a follow up interview tomorrow at 4:50pm". So the next day I went to the interview with another assistant manager. It once again went very smoothly and I asked if I still had the orientation that night and she said it had been moved to the following Tuesday at 7pm. So I returned the following Tuesday and it turns out, it was ANOTHER interview with the store manager. This once again went very smoothly. So after THREE interviews for an entry level job at Taco Bell, I waited for a call. One week, two weeks, three. I gave up on the position. All of my interviews went very well and the manager even said that I was going to be called by him or another local manager at another store within a couple days. Nothing. I would not recommend applying at Taco Bell. 3 interviews for a position like this? That's a joke.

    Customer Service Interview

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Taco Bell.

    Interview Details

    The process was simple but took awhile. The managers took forever to respond with an interview date, but my start date was quick. The questions were basic. If you have previous fast food experience, you can start out at a higher pay. The employees kept talking to the manager as the interview was occurring, which made the interview take longer then expected. After it was finished, paperwork was completed and the manager disappeared for about an hour before they came back to show me around the store. You were required to wear a specific set of clothing, yet it took almost 3 weeks to receive the clothing. The clothing was a basic size and required modification of them at the employees expense.

    Taco Bell Assistant Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at Taco Bell in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    My first interview with the General Manager or "GM" was quite positive. I arrived at the date and time stated on a poster for recruitment. I had previously filled out their website application for Shift Lead and Assistant Manager.
    The GM brought out a suitcase and took out cards of different colors with pictures of the food items on the backs of them. He shuffled them, and ask me to pull out a few. One their backs were standard questions, each of which I answered as positively as possible.
    After this brief interview he determined that due to my maturity, I would be an excellent Assistant Manager. He then informed me that I would have to take a second interview with their Regional Manager. We made the appointment for the following week, at 9:30am.

    Next week I arrived and was told the Regional Manager was out sick. So we made another appointment for the next week. Next week, no manager of any kind arrived. I was told that the GM was at a meeting in another state. At that point, I gave up. I started writing to Yum! Brands Human Resources and asked them to find someone else to interview me.

    Three weeks later I got a call asking me to arrive immediately because a new Area Manager was in town, for only a few minutes. I arrived and we met, and I was grilled. Turned over hot coals. Questions like: "Why should we hire you?" and "Can you lead people confidently?" were fired at me at point-blank range. The Area Manager was abrasive. He offered me the Shift Lead position at $10 per hour, which is well below my usual salary rate. I told him I'd decided to go for Assistant Manager, to which he took down a new sign that had an email address on the bottom, and asked me to submit my "application" to the email. What he and the other manager meant was to submit my resume and a cover letter to this person via email. I did so, and two days later I was asked to meet at a Taco Bell in a neighboring county, over 50 miles away.

    I met with the Yum! Brands Recruiter and the Area Manager there, and right away I could tell that they were not pleased to be conducting an interview so early in the morning. Never-mind that I have to be up a 5am to meet them! Their interview was long, and asked questions like, "What would you do with an employee who failed to live up to expectations?" I answered that I'd take them aside and talk to them, and if they didn't improve, I'd fire them if need be.

    It didn't seem to go over well. They seemed to be impressed but did not like my resume. I got the feeling that they wanted a man in the position, not a woman. I think they thought I'd let the employees run rampant. I thought I'd proved it, but not to their expectations. Still, I left with a reasonably positive felling about the interview.

    Crew Member Interview

    Interview Details

    Went to Taco Bell one day and asked for an application from a crew member, they said they really needed staff and that I should come in the next day before a certain time, which I did, for an interview with the manager and that I had a high chance of being hired since staff was limited, I went home and filled out the application and at about 12 pm the next day I went back and asked to speak to the manager but he wasn't there. The assistant manager took my application and said the manager would call me soon. About 6 hours later I called the specific location to see if the manager received my application but no one answered. I'm still waiting for an interview or a call back at least, but with these results I have very little hope. So far my process hasn't been too enjoyable since I feel clueless. Hopefully I will get a call, interview, and job soon.
