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

    Pros

    Free food for management great pay great people to work with meet new people and get to see how good is made

    Cons

    Upper management doesn't care bout anyone but them selves. Difficult place to work due to the constant change in upper management and they come in with a new style of approach on how to run the restaurant and changes everything then gets transferred or fired within 2 months. Company does not care bout customers at all it's all bout how we can save a dollar

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop being cheap listen to your managers and employees . Look to move someone up or pay more from within instead of hiring someone outside for more pay or higher job titles. Anyone can lie on a application

    I have been working at Taco Bueno part-time

    Pros

    Quick advancement opportunities. Friendly staff. Clean work environment.

    Cons

    Most of the employees dont speak English 100% makes it difficult to communicate while on the job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more english speaking employees. Better working conditions its way too hot to stand for more than 5hrs a shift. Better communication between a management and employees about staying extra hours. There have been many times where manager has asked me to stay and extra two hours right as im clocking out at the end of my shift.

    Pros

    They are flexible with your schedule & break you can free. I learned life and real world experience plus a good work ethic was instilled.

    Cons

    No raises unless the minimum pay wages is changed in the state of Texas and lack of leadership and professionalism. Sometimes your expected to multi-task and take orders through drive-trough, front register and collect money and hand out food in drive through

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reward the hard working employees

    Pros

    Used to be a great company to work for but, not anymore after taking over by Equity Firm

    Cons

    Do to the financial difficulty, almost no befits, frequently changing the bonus program during the year to making sure the majority of the manager don't make the bonus, labor cut, quality cut, higher prices and they removed the respect for people from their cornerstone

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    By taking care of your people and products you may be able to reverse the negative sales trends and save the company from bankruptcy.

    I have been working at Taco Bueno

    Pros

    Fast paced environment with a constant barrage of customers to keep you busy. Most of the customers were polite and level headed. Rude customers were very rare.

    Cons

    A very cut throat approach to scheudlign employees. Very poor training practices and then the employees are blamed when they don't know how to do something. Can be very potentially toxic.
