Team Member Career Opportunities

Shift Manager

A Shift Manager (SM) provides shift leadership and supervision of team members to support the management team in achieving restaurant goals. Shift Managers are self-sufficient while running a shift and often act as “manager in charge” (MIC) of the restaurant. Key areas of focus include:

  • Helps maintain SOS goals, guest relations and product quality
  • Monitors labor and other costs to ensure they are in acceptable variances and maintains all business standards
  • Coaches and supports team members to ensure a great guest experience

Shift Managers perform hands-on operational work to train employees, respond to customer service needs, ensures proper cash control, and role-model appropriate skills and behaviors in the restaurant.

Team Member/Team Trainer

Taco Bell’s team members are probably the most important employees in the restaurant because their actions and behaviors directly impact whether or not our guests have a good or bad experience!  Team members are responsible for taking orders, preparing food, maintaining food-safety standards, performing cleaning tasks, providing great guest service and hospitality, and ensuring overall guest satisfaction. In essence, they are the “face” of Taco Bell to our valued customers.

A Team Trainer performs the same roles as a Team Member, with an emphasis on Training.
