    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Taco Bell (Hillsboro, OR) in January 2015.

    Interview

    I sat down with the manager and she asked me the standard questions (What's your education status? Do you have reliable transport? Can you work in a fast-paced environment? etc...) Then she had me fill out some tax paperwork and read the Taco Bell handbook and code of conduct. They were pretty short-staffed, so she wanted to hire me on the spot, and asked for my uniform measurements so she could order a uniform for me. Then we set a date for me to come in for training.

    Easy Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    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.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Taco Bell (Mesa, AZ) in December 2014.

    Interview

    I applied for several of the areas stores online and got a call from the Assistant Manager of one about a week later. He said he noticed that I had been applying, and informed me of the open interviews they were having later that day. I attended the interview, was one of the few they had that day. The interview was comfortable, they even offered me a drink before we sat down. It was the General Manager and Assistant General Manager, and one other person that I was interviewed by. The interview went very well and they told me they would contact me with the outcome. I got a (sort of vague) call later that same night, that basically meant I was hired. I went in the next day to verify employment, and then I just had to wait for them to get my uniforms.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Taco Bell (Santa Ana, CA) in November 2014.

    Interview

    Well, the interview wasn't as long as I thought it would be. I walked into the work place and went up to a woman working the cashier and asked for the manager to turn in my job application and as soon as I did, the man came up to me, shook my hand and we went to go sit down at one of the tables close by. I was very nervous but, he asked questions about any previous work experience that I had, why I wanted to apply for the job, when I would be available to work, etc. After that was over, he told me that it was a pleasure meeting me and said he would call for further notice if I got the job and we parted our separate ways.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Taco Bell (Concord, NC) in November 2014.

    Interview

    The process was simple, they asked simple basic questions and some math problems. I had to come in for 2 interviews. Everything they asked wasn't too difficult to come up with an answer, just find ways to ask questions and it was simple enough to answer through everything. It took about 20 minutes to get done with the interview because I was waiting for awhile, but I was interviewed by the assistant manager and she was nice and didn't give me a hard time. The experience was great, but I declined the offer because I was relocating.
