Team Member Interview

Anonymous Employee
Akron, OH

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Taco Bell in April 2014.

Interview Details – The interview was really simple. The manager just asked me things like what my best qualities are, why I wanted to work there, the longest I've ever worked at one place, and what shifts I was available. It felt very relaxed and comfortable and only took maybe 15 minutes. Probably one of the best interviews I've ever had.

Interview Question – The only thing they asked that kind of threw me off was what I thought teamwork meant, specifically in a job at taco bell. I said something about it being important to have a positive attitude, but I guess the "correct" answer is "working together to achieve a common goal."   Answer Question

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Taco Bell in June 2011.

Interview Details – Depending on your district or franchise you can have as many as 3 interviews. One with the assistant store manager, second with the store manager, and third with the district manager. If not you will probably do an interview with just the store manager. Interview questions were basic, they would ask what is your availability, why do you want to work for this company, tell me about yourself, past work experience.

Interview Question – Why do you want to work for us?   Answer Question

Taco Bell Team Member/Cashier Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Blaine, MN

I applied in-person and the process took 1 week - interviewed 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.

Difficult Interview

Shift Lead Interview

Anonymous Employee

I applied online and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Taco Bell.

Interview Details – My hiring interview was at a local taco bell store. I was being interviewed by the district manager, she was 30 minutes late to the interview. I was dressing in black slacks, a navy polo and a jacket. She was dressed in a track suit. On first glance, she commented that my attire does not make it seem like I was even interested in the job. She then proceeded to ask me scenario questions, when dispute questions arose, I answered, "That would have to depend on my training as to how the company would like me to handle that situation." That was not an acceptable answer and I was told to choose something different. After the interview, I was offered a job 10 cents lower that what I was asking, and then told my training store was a 45 minute drive.

Interview Question – If a customer came in to the store, said they were just in the drive thru and then threw a burrito at your face, what would you do.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There was no negotiation
