I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed 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 Question – 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

I applied online and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Taco Bell in July 2011.

Interview Details – I was called in almost a month after filling out the application. I had a total of two interviews, one with the assistant manager and then another several days later with the general manager. The interview was pretty straightforward and highly regulated. Corporate supplies question cards and the interviewer just flips through. I ended up getting hired because I'm capable, and moreover because they thought I was a nice guy.

Interview Question – Don't remember.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – "We pretty much pay minimum wage." "Alright."

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Taco Bell in October 2011.

Interview Details – I had a job interview at Taco Bell/KFC. I applied online and I got a response back like two weeks later. I went in for my interview and they talked about the position more than anything. They talked about how I had to do more than make food like cleaning. After discussing everything about the job, the manager said I got the job and that she will call me for training since I didn't have any experience. Long story short... she never called me back.

Interview Question – they were all easy.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – there was no negotiation.

I applied in-person and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Taco Bell in June 2009.

Interview Details – Even though it was four years ago, I remember the process quite well. After giving my application, I was called back a week later with a date for the interview. Casual clothes, sitting in the lobby of the store. It was a 1:1 interview with the manager, asking about my personality and such. After that, a group of newly hired employees and myself watched a video and answered a verbal questionnaire.

Interview Question – There were no surprising or unexpected questions. As long as you keep in mind that working at Taco Bell requires a good personality, a great smile, and easy listening skills.   Answer Question

I applied online and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Taco Bell in July 2013.

Interview Details – I walked in and told the cashier that I was here for an interview. He handed me a cup and said I could go get a soda while I waited. I got my drink and sat down. I looked around and saw the interviewer interviewing someone and I could hear everything. I also saw 3 other people waiting to be interviewed, all listening to the interview. It was unprofessional. Next was me and everyone listened as I was interviewed. The District Manager basically told me about all there policies and what they do to be unique. She asked me two questions. What is your favorite ice cream flavor? and What do you hope to gain from working here? I was hired on the spot.
Honestly she was very friendly and it was like talking with a friend. Make sure you smile because they want a friendly person.

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Taco Bell in May 2013.

Interview Details – I applied online and received a call a couple weeks later telling me I had an interview tomorrow. I arrived about 10 minutes early. The manager came over and interviewed me at one of the tables. He asked me some simple questions about my experience, my availability, how I would get there, what tasks I'd be willing to do, how friendly I am, etc. He then brought over a written application which I filled out and returned to him. He told me to get some non-slip shoes and call him in a few days to see when I could start.

Interview Question – There were no difficult or unexpected questions   Answer Question

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Taco Bell in November 2009.

Interview Details – I had 3 separate interviews because the manager was always so busy so I had to interview with the assistant manager first. The interview was easy. Just a few scenario case questions and that was pretty much it. I came back for orientation about 2 weeks later and then just had to wait for my uniforms to come in which took a little longer than expected due to bad weather.
