    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

    Cons

    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

    Former Employee - Service Champion in Arvada, CO

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

    Pros

    This job as a service champion really teaches a person about customer service and how to handle money. You deal with customers and meeting there needs everyday. Taking orders, you use your own cash draw and are responsible for it from when you open it to closing it.

    Cons

    Pay raises aren't that good at all. The GM had $1 to split between everyone in our building so most people didn't even get a raise and I only got a 15 cent raise. Management isn't the best but you can't expect to much from a fast food joint.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Making sure that each level of management manages what they're responsible for and no more. Lower managers, like shift leaders would do things that only the assistant manager or GM has authority to do and they were stepping out of line. Otherwise for the mot part, it was good and everything was run really well with a good system.

    I worked at Taco Bell

    Pros

    Very easy to get a job with. Easy to learn. Easy to excel in with the given competition.

    Cons

    Kind of dead end. Really hard to get past a manager position. Lower level management usually doesn't care much for the employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Use less generic training videos and a little bit more one on one.
