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

    Pros

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

    Cons

    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.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer raises to employees a little more frequently. Worked there for 3 years and only received 1.

    I have been working at Taco Bell

    Pros

    Great work place with an exceptional corporate office. Really enjoy how upper management interact with their employees and tries to encourage them to be the best at what they do in anything in life.

    Cons

    No reviews for 90 days employees to receive a raise even if it is .25.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keeping doing what you are doing interact with your employees and see if they are happy and what would make the job more comfortable and good working environment. Place a survey box in the store for the employees to give you feedback, only corporate can get in the box.
    Happy employees make happy management and more revenue at the end of the day. You want people that want to stay with the company and with the right incentives that can be accomplished.

    Pros

    Nothing about working at Taco Bell is amazing and worth bragging about but my work was made bearable by my awesome coworkers. We always had a blast. I was able to get lots of hours too.

    Cons

    Very little training. More of a learn as you go environment. Annoying customers too, of course.

    Pros

    Benefits, free food, good training program, corporate is better than franchise especially where pay is concerned. Great people. very family friendly atmosphere

    Cons

    I really dont have any cons to list about this job other than the occasional bad micromanaging market manager. People make a company but one bad egg shouldnt be blamed on the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Monitor your market managers more closely.
