THERE ARE PROS, but beware of the Cons. The culture is diverse and draws people of all sorts, but mainly (and thankfully), the vibe is non-judgmental. The effort expected is reasonable. They won't push you further than they need to, and you can grow at your own pace. They put up with my weaknesses for a long time before I became a pro at making food. Once I got LIGHTSPEED at making food after eight months, they wanted me to STAY there, bringing me to the Cons.
However, you want to elaborate on the concept. In the most cynical terms, I'd say they're efficient at taking any ole sucker, getting what they can out of them, and providing reasonable forgiveness. Whether I was not proactive enough or there weren't incentives to move around their management (my leading theory), they don't promote much because the administration isn't quitting or moving up. They'll replace managers or anyone they need in an instant EXTERNALLY, and it's a dead end.

The people you work with can make it hard to quit
There is a bonus structure but it is very hard to achieve and I worked in one of the best running stores. And we barely ever got it. Everyone above store level doesn’t care about you. I’ve been an assistant for 10 years and I’m one of the best and they paid me the same as an assistant that is just being promoted. Took me a YEAR to get $5000 more. It is really hard to get employees to care about their job. The 6 week training period for external hired managers is NOT long enough to learn anything. Not by a long shot. That is coming from myself in training and also training others that came to our store (we are a training store).

They have great benefits and upoer managment is acceptable. They do understand life happens. Bonuses every months for gm & bothe assistants
If your the GM you will puttingnin so mamy hours, especially if u take over a store that is not in good shape. You can bust you rear and if u dont meet the metrics the bonus u should get for metrics you wont get anything if your not meeting metrics but you will be there 60-70 hrs a week only get paid for 50 and if u get no bonus u basically bust ur butt for free

I worked here 3 years ago and remember this location as being a great work environment. I've worked in other fast food and didn't have nearly as comfortable an experience. They encourage growth and are very accommodating to the scheduling needs of employees. If you need work fast and don't mind WORKING this is a great workplace
Only the usual cons, you freeze when stuck on drive thru but they have coats you can borrow

Flexible on hours and needing to change schedules
Shift managers often have to cover other shifts at times when it may be inconvenient if someone calls off - this depends on location and how reliable other managers are.

I have no Pros I hated my Job at Taco Bell.
Drama at work, No Communication, Employees Lie to Boss, Stuck working multiple positions by my-self during rushes. Boss just does not care. Favoritism

Usually chill people working there, but you gotta have a good manager.
The angry customers are not worth the pay. Go to retail.

Kind management, felt more like family, incredibly lenient with my schedule, and supportive of my endeavors outside of work
None really, starting pay could always be higher
