    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 have been working at Taco Bell

    Pros

    Great work place. The work is challenging enough but not overwhelmingly difficult. It can be fast paced and there is always something new to learn. The help desk desk is a great job for most students

    Cons

    The customers can be quite a challenge to deal with even though the customers are generally all part of the company.
    For the work done, the pay could be better

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some of the experimental training methods at times means leaving others out of the training and can affect personal growth and motivation.

    I worked at Taco Bell

    Pros

    benefits, pay rate, vacation time

    Cons

    Excellent company who really does value their employees however the immediate higher management was not trust worthy and and was very shady in meeting the corporate results. I was very nervous working in that environment and knew I had to leave. I requested a transfer to another district and was denied. Had I been given that transfer I would still be working for the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I lost faith in my immediate supervisor and in doing so it migrated to the area HR and upper leaders. Taco Bell is great for growth but really needs new outside blood to keep the long term employees honest. Poor training for new managers and not enough HR follow up for this role.

    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.

    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.
