    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

    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.
