I worked at Taco Bell full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Flexibility, good place to gain experience, easy to move up, easy job, free soda! Lots of bonus perks if your store works well together and meets or exceeds corporate standards.

Cons

Food service is not usually a permanent place, moderate stress, low pay, hours can be at anytime.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Please make sure that while fast food and Taco Bell can be a fun, fast, and somewhat relaxed place to work, it is also a place that serves the public food and offers face to face interaction so proper training and shadowing in the first week or two is imperative especially with new workers ex. High Schoolers. Workers need to make sure that they have fun while still taking food handling and preparation seriously as if they were the customers.

    I have been working at Taco Bell full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    -Culture of food
    -Wear jeans everyday to work
    -Onsite Daycare/Spa/Gym/Car Wash
    -Summer hours give employees the chance to leave at 1 pm on Fridays in the summer
    -Big Name Brand to work for

    Cons

    -Constant stream of upper managers from different industries are being recruited into Taco Bell .Taco Bell should aggressively develop their analysts and associates within to maintain the fun Taco Bell culture
    -Management is neurotic and never remembers their past mistakes
    -The culture of promoting has started to become more cut throat. To move up you need to not be afraid to bruise people on your way to management.
    -Only some departments get to be creative and have fun. Management should structure the organization to leverage EVERYONE's creative energy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    For YUM Management: Stop influencing Taco Bell's distinct California culture and brand. Your YUM culture is cliche and you are merely acting as a holding company to provide power over suppliers for KFC/Pizza Hut/Taco Bell. Pizza Hut and KFC haven't been doing well for the past several years in the US.

    For Taco Bell management: Stop trying to get away from your core competency in selling cheap food. Management should focus on strategies that leverage Taco Bell's core competency and should invest in a separate skunk works team to drive revolutionary innovation.
