    Pros

    This is a place to get a quick paycheck, but don't expect to be treated with respect. If you like a fast paced environment where your superiors will treat you like garbage, this company is for you.

    Cons

    Constantly short staffed. You will be written up for doing your job. They will send you home and write you up for things like being "out of it" and reprimand you for not being overly happy and smiling. They will offer you a promotion, then revoke your promotion when you aren't meeting expectations because they refuse to train you in your new position.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to hire general managers that actually know what it's like to work in the food industry, not someone who took classes in business management. Actually listen to your workers; without them, your business will fail. Quit making hardworking people leave their jobs because of erroneous write-ups and rampant favoritism.

    I have been working at Del Taco

    Pros

    It is relaxed with great people. You do get half off food which is nice.

    Cons

    You only get half off which isnt great. Employees are treated bad. 10 minute break for 5 hours. Half hour for anything more? that is sad

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Longer breaks (15 for under 5 hours, 30 minutes for 5-7 hours, 45 minutes for eight or more hours.

    Pros

    General Manager is very fair. Treats everyone fair and is very focused on doing everything the correct Del Taco Way.

    Cons

    Must start at the bottom and prove yourself worthy of a higher position.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promotional windows are too short. Stop changing the promotions every 4-5 weeks. Give them a chance to live.
    Also, too much administrative direction is coming from the corporate office. Overkill.

    I worked at Del Taco

    Pros

    Del Taco runs a lean organizational structure which allows it's employees to become involved in multiple facets of the business and grow their skill set.

    Cons

    Del Taco could be better at planning promotional cycles and getting ahead of project lead times. This would allow for better execution and a seamless transition.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put more time and effort into employee's job performance reviews and keep the timeline of when they are conducted consistent. Create a culture of developing employees and hiring from within.

    They'll hire without experience, but which fast food doesn't?
