    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.

    Pros

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

    Hard to get raise
    hours are horrible
    Always had to stay longer or cover shifts

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize your best employees before they're gone
    You decide to give me a raise when I decide to quit?

    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.

    I worked at Del Taco part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I got to eat for free and it was a job so I had extra money in my pocket. Those were the only pros of the job.

    Cons

    They didn't want to work around my schedule for R. O. P. and I went from part time working two or three days a week to being on call and working once every two weeks. I was trained for two hours and then I was expected to know everything. Whenever I asked for help they would get upset and say things like "you should know this already" when I had only been there for two days. The manager sent me home crying my first week. She threatened to fire me because I didn't know everything. Other employees told me she was not nice and always yelling at people. I was there for five months and when I left 4 other employees quit and the GM was replaced.
