    Pros

    cashier/window order taker

    You get a discounted meal. The job is easy enough for a mentally challenged person with the right training. Not opened third shift even though it is opened late. Ok job to have for a first job.

    Cons

    The co-workers are more worried about the time in the window than the customers, which can make a customer feel rushed, unwelcomed, and makes us look unprofessional. It makes the orders come out sloppy. People don't get the order punched in correctly... And so on

    Advice to Management

    If your area is unusually busy, hire more people to come in or come in yourself. People don't need to wait in line 30 mins for a taco.

  3. It was a wonderful experience for my 3 daughters, they love Taco Bell!

    Pros

    Meeting new people, learning new things. The opportunity to advance my career!

    Cons

    Honestly, one of the worst cons of working fast food is dealing with the younger immature kids.

    Advice to Management

    I am very interested in management. I have little experience but am a fast learner and a very hard worker. I really don't have any advice for the management. I just hope to learn as much as possible from them so that one day I will be a great manager!

    Pros

    Chance to move up in management. Good staff to work with.Good Benefits. opportunities to branch out and run new operations.

    Cons

    LONG hours, a lot of menu items to manage, and with staff high turnover it makes it extra challenging. Other general managers with less experience were making more money.

    Advice to Management

    Consider work life balance of management employees.

    Pros

    This is a great company! As far as fast food restaurants, this one is by far the best. Amazing team member benefits, full time hours, management works closely with and helps team members. The work is not too hard. Nice,respectful co-workers and managers etc,.

    Cons

    "Too easy to love." Like every fast food restaurant, there will be lazy people.

    Advice to Management

    "Keep up the good work!"

    Pros

    The only pro of working for Taco Bell is that the hours are flexible, which is great when you are a college student.

    Cons

    The rules are always changing, breaks are not given, audits, pay is horrible, especially for what they expect of you, unprofessional, unrealistic expectations from staff working in the stores, constant cutting of labor.

    Advice to Management

    Upper Management has completely lost touch with those that work on the floor.

    Pros

    Flexible to meet ones scheduling needs, decent pay as a manager. Raises are given at least twice a year. Bonuses come once a month.

    Cons

    Crazy hours. Sometimes you will be required to work 5am to 4pm, other days its 3:30 pm to 2am. Your body will not be on any type of sleep schedule. Often employees like to gossip, but I believe that happens anywhere you work.

    Advice to Management

    Take the time to talk with each employee individually to express concerns.
