    Pros

    I get along with almost everyone. They encourage you to help each other instead of one man for itself. It really is all about teamwork.

    Cons

    Sometimes you get people who don't want to pull their weight, but that's everywhere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I don't currently have any.

    I worked at Taco Bell full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    If you get them to pay you more than minimum wage, you'll definitely get enough hours to make a good check.
    The customers are awesome. Especially the drunk/high ones.
    Every once in a while someone can make your day better if its bad, be it by a gift, or kind words.
    Some of the people you work with can be cool.
    You may develop lasting friendships.

    Cons

    Be prepared to work more hours than expected.
    You may be forced to work at other locations.
    Management will guilt you into coming in on your off days.
    You either get paid on a card, or direct deposit, unless you have a bank account.
    NO MATTER WHAT YOU WERE HIRED FOR, MAKING FOOD OR SELLING IT, YOU WILL BE DOING EVERYTHING!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When you hire an employee for one location, don't guilt them into going to another location for that location's lack of scheduling.
    Plan the holiday schedules an extra week in advance, to avoid multiple call-ins.
    Extra- I was fired because I got sick, a Shift Leader and a Team Trainer came to my house to get me to work, when they could see that I was sick. I was told to call them when I was ready to work. A few days later I did just that, only to be told I was fired.

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

    Pros

    You will meet some amazing people who you will grow close to and learn to love they will teach you everything until your the one teaching them new things. My management team were the hardest workers ever and would bend over backwards for me at my request to improve my store.

    Cons

    Taco Bell and some franchises affiliated with YUM Brands are view as money hungry animals that only care about profit and not customers nor the stress they put on the entire crew when they work them like cattle with no breaks and impossible expectations..

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cooperate check who you have as your ARLs for it seems they are only worried about their bonuses and not the fact that they are making stores making $377 an hour with just two people on staff.... ridiculous

    Pros

    Many of the managers are willing to work with you to help you improve your performance. Show that you are dependable and you get an increase of hours.

    Cons

    Sometimes the shifts are short members, whether from being scheduled that way or other workers don't come.
