undefinedTaco Bell Founder, Glen Bell, had more than just a vision for serving great food. He also believed in giving back to his community and investing in young people as highlighted in 2 of the recipes for Success from The Glen Bell Story, Taco Titan. Recipe for Success #55 The greater your hands-on participation in giving, the more rewarding the experience; Success #56 -Support organizations that encourage initiative in children.

    I worked at Taco Bell part-time for more than 3 years


    Easy to learn. Flexible schedules. Surprisingly easy to advance. All in all a decent job for anyone who likes a fast paced environment.


    Smelling like taco bell every night. Closing the store at 4 am. Compensation pretty low but it's not rocket science. Very busy pretty much all of the time.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 days - interviewed at Taco Bell in June 2013.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and got a phone call for an interview a few days later. Asked very basic questions like when are you available to work and if I was still in school. The manager made a couple of calls and told me to go to another interview at a different location because they needed team members. I went the next day and the manager of the store greeted me and we sat down and she just asked when could I start and told me how much I would be getting paid and I pretty much was hired.
