    I have been working at Taco Bell full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Lots of hard work for sure...but after you adjust to knowing what you are trained to do it becomes second nature! I'm now a General Manager and worked myself up the career ladder in just a few years. The Taco Bell headquarters are just up the street from my store in Orange County....and the support I get is wonderful. My employees must like me, and enjoy my managerial style, as shown by the low turnover of employees. Taco Bell encourages promotions and also giving vacation time and time off when needed...so the stress levels are minimal to my co-workers and overall everyone is happy here. That also makes my job easier...and word of mouth from my employee partners brings in their friends to work here too.

    Overall I intend to stay with Taco Bell and work my way up the Corporate ladder to further my success. I've worked for some pretty big name restaurant chains during my 20 plus restaurant career...but actually found a home here at Taco Bell!

    Cons

    You have to focus on customer satisfaction, and have a "do it right" the first time mind set. Most importantly is to take care of your customers...and that means staying focused and stay on top of your game.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I hve to thank Taco Bell's training and company culture that allows such a potentially high stress job to be very tolerable and dare I say...even a fun and rewarding work enviornment. Keep up the great work Taco Bell!

    Pros

    The team was great. They were fun and enjoyable to work around. The management at my location was pretty great as well. Promoted within 6 months.

    Cons

    Customers aren't always the best and really treat you poorly. The customer service aspect can be stressful, but it's worth it in the end.

    I worked at Taco Bell

    Pros

    Training and the management was good. I got the training that I needed to allow me to do my job well.

    Cons

    The work was hard, and tiring. I understand it was an entry level fast food position, but a lot was expected for little pay.

    It's an ok job. The people you work with in your shift is what really makes the experience enjoyable or not so enjoyable.

    Pros

    Better management salaries than most of their competitors as well as friendlier attitudes. Room for advancement and education. Far less turn over rate than other fast food companies because they work with their employees.

    Cons

    Even with the perks, it is still fast food. Managing teenagers to early twenties for the most part. Not much flexibility as it is a chain restaurant.
