I have been working at Del Taco full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Meet great people flexible hours and great discounts! (where i meet my husband!!)

Cons

Difficult customers and the management does not see the hard work put in by the employees. If higher management doesnt personally like you, you will have no oppertunity to advance no matter how hard and good you work and how you do your job...

Advice to Management

appriciate staff without them you would be in their shoes...look into the hard work people give and even a 10 cent raise would do time to time enouragement and trainging leading by example and not taking advantage of people!!!

    Pros

    Fast paced environment.

    Friendly people.

    Flexible hours.

    Cons

    Very cheap. Del Taco Corporation gives bonuses to managers who have the fastest drive times. Which means you are basically a robot making food as fast as possible every second of every shift. Managers often have you do work while you are on your break, usually because there is hardly anyone working because manager schedules less workers so they get their "low labor bonus."

    General Manager also gets bonuses from Corporate if their labor is very low. (Which means the Hours get cut and you tend to only get about 7 or 7.5 hours per shift instead of full 8)

    Food is often uncooked because "cooking the food all the way through takes too long which increases drive times."

    Store is often too cheap to provide sufficient cleaning materials because it costs money to buy degreaser or dishwashing soap.

    Also manager gets bonuses if they do not have anyone working overtime. Often the managers will require workers to work off the clock.

    Bottom line : if you enjoy being a slave, working in a dirty environment and getting nowhere in life, then working at a Del Taco Restaurant is the job for you.

    Advice to Management

    None, managers do a very good job for the most part.

    Too bad they only get paid a couple quarters more than the guy scrubbing toilets or the person working their ass off on grill.

    Also think about being a manager somewhere else. Many Del taco stores make $5000 a day profit per store. Only about $1500 or so from that 5000 goes to the purchasing of foods bills and paying employees salaries. The rest goes to corporate and the workers get next to nothing. You are earning the corporate office people their money and you are left with .50cents above minimum wage.
