They work their employees for up to 8 and a half hours with giving any form of breaks, only after a 9 hour or longer shift do you get a break. And then sometimes you don't even get that if they forget to give it, which happens a bit. Then, they allow their asst. managers to bring personal matters into work and literally abuse the employees physically. My wife was one of these employees, and she would come home with black and blue marks from where she had been hit by her asst. manager or where the asst. manager had thrown something at her. All because she had outside issues with my wife. When my wife talked to the main manager about this and explained that she didn't feel safe working with this new asst. manager, she was told to stick it out. Not liking this answer my wife gave them two weeks notice, so she could seek employment elsewhere. Her manager told her don't bother coming back then. Now keep in mind that this is the ONLY taco bell here in town that does this, at least to my knowledge. So my wife contacted a friend of hers who works and manages one of the other taco bells, and he wants to hire her. But her old manager still has her in the computer and refuses to release her status. Therefore her friend can't hire her while she is still in the court street taco bell's computer, so she is basically black-balled.
She called her old manager back, to ask why she was doing this. And she wouldn't get on the phone to talk to her, she gave the following info to other employees to tell my wife. She said that the reason she was black balling her was because I(not my wife) had reported her to corporate for the things that I have listed above. I found this to be very childish, and unprofessional.........especially for a General Manager's behavior. So that is the story, and I just wanted to let people know that this is obviously condoned by the CORPORATE Offices of Taco Bell because they refuse to do anything about it. And yes the Taco Bell in question, is a corporate owned one. That said, I know they will never see my business again. And as far as I am concerned, they themselves can head for the border.
