    Pros

    If you are a high school student, it's easy money if you have patience. If you are a people person, go for cashier. If you are not, go for line worker.

    Cons

    You will work with a lot of people who don't put in as much work as you. You will soon see them go though and you will nonone unnoticed.

    I worked at Taco Bell full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Pay, Benefits, People, and the flexibility of schedule as a DM.

    Cons

    Upper management, late hours, fast pace and rarely ever appreciated by employer or customers. Just want to get as many cars through each day as possible. Regardless of how you get there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take the time to really get to know what your customers want. And then make the job match those expectations without sacrificing the quality of life for each employee.

    Former Employee - Assistant General Manager in Searcy, AR

    I worked at Taco Bell full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    It is a very easy job. Very quick to catch on to. Definitely fast paced. The staff is most generally friendly.

    Cons

    Being around the same people all day, they tend to end up in relationships resulting in breaking policy. Working 40-50+hrs a week leaves no family time especially when you end up working 65-75+hrs in a single week.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communication is #1. If you can not communicate with your other managers then the store will fall through and the customers will suffer.
    Do not try to or get into a relationship with a co worker whether you're the one starting it or agreeing to it. It causes alot if drama and problems. Not only do you have problems outside of work but ot will wnd up affecting the work place as well. There is a policy for a reason. No one (crew, shift, assistant, or gm) should breal this policy, as well as others.

    I worked at Taco Bell

    Pros

    Hired on the spot
    Easy to move up in the company
    Easy to learn
    Flexible hours

    Cons

    Found most managers unprofessional.
    Manipulated younger people by making them feel obligated to stay past legal hours.
    Even with different Gms sometimes they would short employees a few hours on their checks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more responsible managers, lead by example.
