    Interview

    Ask you questions to make sure you are not completely retarded.

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing really unexpected, they may ask why you want to work for them.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    If you try hard you might be able to get them to start you out at 7.50... Tell them you want to be a crew trainer and I have seen people start at 8.50. This is the ONLY chance you will have to increase your pay by a decent amount. Your yearly increase will be around $.05 cents.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Taco Bell (Laie, HI) in September 2013.

    Interview

    Very relaxed interview process. Interviewed with the general manager and then the district manager. Both were one on one and involved questions about my ability to have a flexible schedule and why my experience qualified me to start as a manager rather than as a tea member. It seemed they were looking more for competency, conversation ability, and personality more than anything else.

    Interview Questions

    • If I would be willing to work up towards a higher position.   1 Answer

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Taco Bell (Manhattan, KS).

    Interview

    Typical interview process. Turn in an application, and hope to get an interview. Most quick service restaurants (in my experience) look for availability as a filter. Make sure you have an availability on your application that meets what the job is looking for, but be honest so as not to lead on the interviewer. Do not call to check on applications during busy times (lunch rush between 11am and 1:30 pm, dinner rush between 5:30 and 7:30pm) as most times the hiring manager will put your application in the no pile. Get the application and turn it in in person. Don't use the drive through, and don't have your friend turn it in. If you have a basic ability to follow instructions, any experience,act professionally and have sidestepped most of these pitfalls I mentioned above, you are likely to get an interview, which is a basic "tell me about yourself, a time you did something good/bad and how you fixed it/what did you learn" interview.
