    I have been working at Taco Bell full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    I have had the privilege of working with great people over my 9 years with Taco Bell. Taco Bell has helped me grow as a leader and as a person. Great Place to work!

    Cons

    Truly meant in the nicest way possible without sounding the way it's going to sound. Just as we can make or break our customers day, they can DEFINITELY do the same to us.

    I have been working at Taco Bell

    Pros

    Work-life balance is important to the company, the culture is one of a kind. Some very caring people that work for the company.

    Cons

    Advancement is seldom available and opportunities that are becoming available are not communicated to current employees unless you research yourself and even then they may not be accurate openings.

    I worked at Taco Bell full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Decent pay for Assistant Management. Should fall between 27,000-34,000 annually. Training is somewhat neglected, and instead you feel like a regular worker while training. In the end, the company will find a way to complete your training for Assistant Manager and you will be moved to your store. Entire training process takes about 6 weeks.

    Cons

    There are many people who are not happy with their career, so just smile a lot and stay positive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Really take a look at the training program, and ensure your staff are being fully trained.

    Pros

    Fairly easy responsibilities, nice co-workers, good managers, employee discount, easy to learn, they always teach you whenever there are new things

    Some rude customer, not enough hours, some co-workers were very lazy & immature, kind of far from home

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't constantly hire people when there are already limited hours for current workers, make sure all workers are doing there Jobs & not slacking off

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

    Pros

    Good atmosphere, great management, friendly workers. This is good to have in order to be productive during peak hours and weekends.

    Cons

    No room to advance even though submitted requests. Would like more positive reinforcement and accolades. Hoping minimum wage increases soon.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be nice to offer employees a way to advance in lieu of getting a degree, sometimes experience pays off with on the job training to those who qualify to take the next step.
