All in all, it wasn't bad for a fast food job.

Crew Member (Former Employee)
Vineland, NJ

I worked at Taco Bell full-time for more than a year

ProsNot all of the customers are bad.
Its clean and they actually follow food standards.
No drug testing.
You can become a manager whether you should be or not.

ConsSome of the managers are ignorant and play favorites.
The employees are childish.
You get stuck in the same spot everyday even tho they tell you it wont happen.

Advice to Senior ManagementScreen your managers better before pushing them through because a lot of them don't care about anything but themselves.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Great for students

Shift Leader (Former Employee)
Carrollton, GA

I worked at Taco Bell part-time for less than a year

ProsGood while in school. Flexible hours. Fast paced and is better with friends, makes time go by faster. Free food lol.

ConsBad pay. Called in to work on off days quite often. Poor management when it comes to speed and cleaning. Closing and opening the store is the most work by far!

Environment, People, and Benefits were Great but Some of the Work itself was Mundane

- Lots of free events and promotions
- Different groups in IT work very well together

Cons- Some of the work itself was mundane
