    Pros

    You get to learn exactly how decisions about your food are made and perhaps even where it comes from! There is a lot of parking

    Cons

    A very corporate office environment in which employees are not really valued. High turnover and struggle to meet investor expectations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in your people and trust in them and you will succeed. Also focus on the ethics of food procurement even if it comes at a high cost.

    I worked at Del Taco

    Pros

    Free and 50% off meals.

    Cons

    I worked there for 15 months, within that time. I was promoted from team member to shift manager then to general manager. I had HORRIBLE training, basically no training. This company hires illegals! 90% of the staff only spoke Spanish, which made my job and everyone else's job extremely difficult. My supervisor and the owner did not care. There theory was that it didn't matter because Mexicans work hard. They did indeed, but communication was very limited. Pay sucks! Worked 6-7 days a week. I mentioned I was a General Manager and I wasn't receiving any benefits. NONE! There was way too much drama between management and worse on team member levels. I've never worked for such a horrible company before. They also had no training implented, so all new hires were literally thrown into work with very little to no training. I would not recommend this place for employment, only if you're looking for a quick paycheck.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    *Implement a training program for new hires and promotions.
    *Hire people who either speak English or are bilingual.
    *If benefits come with a promotion, give it to them. Don't keep putting it on the back burner.
    *Implement a reward system, "thank you" is not enough these days. Especially for the hard work good employees put in.
    *Actually follow the "3 write-ups and your out" policy. ( I knew a manager with over 12 write-ups)
    *You should probably hire ONLY legals, this will catch up to you one day.
    *Great business starts with great upper management.

    Pros

    Good overall and on track for growth.

    Cons

    Favoritism and nepotism among the upper management. Recognition for favorites and criticism for the rest.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You know and yet don't seem to mind. You can do much much more if you give bonus and put a stop to the game players. Numbers mean nothing if it's all b.s.

    Free food and great co workers

    Too much responsibility for little money... General managers have no knowledge about what they are doing since they get hired and transferred from other fast food places.

    Pros

    Friendly co workers. We always laugh and have fun

    Cons

    Long hours with no breaks, sometimes managers abuse their power, and things are always breaking.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Update some of your equipment and you guys need to start considering your workers more, and not 100% on the customers all the time.
