    Team Member Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed 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 Questions
    • 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

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed 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.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Taco Bell in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was interviewed with typical interview questions such as goals, strengths and weaknesses etc. I was hired as a manager, even with no experience. The GM was late for the interview, after about a 15 minute wait he was able to see me. He was very positive during the interview and did not interrupt me. He asked me what I liked most about my current job and I said social interactions and what I liked the least and I said lack of resources and why I was leaving my current job (hours). I treat the interview as a chance to interview the boss and I ask what kind of boss he is and how he handles conflicts with customers and his coworkers.

    Taco Bell Team Member/Cashier Interview

    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.
