    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Taco Bell in March 2015.

    Interview Details

    It took about a week. I applied online then the hiring manager called me and set up an interview time. I arrived 15 minutes early. They handed me a cup so i could get a drink while i waited. I didn't have to wait long. The manager asked me pretty simple questions about school, transportation, and availability. It was very easy and relaxing.

    I applied online. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Taco Bell in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    I applied 3 days ago after seeing an ad freshly posted on Craigslist. A day ago I got a call to come in for an interview. Missed the initial call and called back around 15 minutes later and scheduled an interview for earlier tonight (2/28/2015). Walked there, was scheduled for 7:45 pm and I got there around 7:30 and the manager wasn't busy so we started early, I was done and walking home by 7:55. She had a chunk of resumes she came out and looked through with me to find mine and it wasn't there so she just asked for the resume I brought.

    I brought with me a folder with my resume and my little notepad I write my interview notes in. We sat down at a nearby table and she started by looking at my resume and saying "So tell me about yourself." Typical stuff, explained I graduated recently, went to school nearby, great with people, looking for a career, planning on going back to college, etc. She asked a couple more questions as she looked over my resume like what happened with my last job, etc. After that she brought out a set of cards. This was the part I dreaded as I had read people both had these cards and didn't and it makes it a bit more complicated.

    She had me pick cards, she read them and it was typical things like dealing with customers, stressful situations, etc. Pretty sure they had keywords or answers of some sort on them as well since she was reading it as I was talking. Afterward she asked about my availability and transportation, explained I'm completely available and a 30 minute walk away. After that she said I did a really great job at the interview. She basically had no reason not to hire me right there so I was hired on the spot.

    The moral of this story is, do your research. I spent a couple hours reading interview reviews on here and writing down and answering the questions people were asked on my notepad. I wasn't asked the strengths and weaknesses question but it's important to be prepared for all the primary questions like that. The questions people are asked on here are typically company questions that all Taco Bells will have, like the cards I had to answer. I also memorized who the founder was, when it was founded, who the franchise company is, what their key to success is (C.H.A.M.P.S), and who the CEO is. Ultimately I never talked about any of that but if it came up I was prepared. Also could have brought it up for more success but didn't need to.

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Taco Bell.

    Interview Details

    You submit and application and show up for your RGM's "interview day" if he/she stays long enough to do it. You should probably call ahead and let him/her know that you are coming for an interview so you don't drive up there and miss the RGM. It will also let them feel like you have a high concern for punctuality; making you more likely to get the job.

    I applied online – interviewed at Taco Bell.

    Interview Details

    I applied online through indeed and the hiring manger called me in for an interview about 4 days later. The employees were being really quiet but friendly, the hiring manager asked me basic interview questions like was I in school, why did I want to work for taco bell, how many hours did I want, and basically told me I got the job on the spot.. Which was cool, but everything was not like it had cracked up to be.

    Taco Bell Team Member Interview

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Taco Bell in December 2014.

    Interview Details

    The hiring process took three days. Visited a store, filled out and submitted my application on Saturday, got a call on Sunday, interview on Monday. I suggest visiting the store you wanted to apply as I applied online a week before and did not get a call. I arrived 10 minutes early and the manager was still not there. It was not a problem, because I decided to go early to make a good impression. The interview started with basic questions like my name, mode of transportation, hours available. Then he asked if multitasking would be okay for me and of course I said yes. The manager also asked what did I do when I was faced with a difficult task. He then just told me that they needed a team member that would smile to the customers, and he said it seems like I don't have a problem with that since I was smiling confidently the whole time I was being interviewed. I was told that he still has a few more interviews but would love to have me on board. I got hired on the spot, 9$ per hour (minimum wage in CA). I did not negotiate because I thought I do not have the right to because I do not have previous job experiences at all. Got asked for my shirt size, and told me to come on Wednesday for my training.

I filled out the application, which included past work experience and references. I then answered some simple questions with the manager. She wanted to know how I would fit in at the Taco Bell.
