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

I applied through other source and the process took a day - interviewed at Taco Bell in April 2011.

Interview Details – I went to a career fair Taco Bell was holding for all management positions. It was a pretty decent turnout when I got there, and the place was packed. They told you to bring a resume, but when I arrived they had you sign in and fill out an application, then had probably 5 to 7 managers there from different stores reviewing everyone's application and doing 1:1 interviews with everybody. When the manager called my name we sat down and briefly went over my experience, then he told me that they didn't actually need anybody at any certain store but were pre-screening applications in case they needed anybody. Fairly easy interview, asked me a few questions about customer service and teamwork and then asked a simple what if question. Then proceeding to tell me that he would give my resume and application to the recorder and call me for an interview if they needed me.
