A fast food chain of more than 300 locations across the United States, TacoTime conducts a simple and to-the-point interview process. Generally, the company evaluates a candidate with a single one-on-one interview. Some positions may require applicants to participate in several rounds of interviews. During the interview process, hiring managers seek out applicants with previous fast food industry experience, customer service skills, ability to work in a team, and open availability. After an interview, a hiring manager may ask an applicant to submit to a drug screen and agree to a criminal background check, though additional screenings typically stand reserved for workers assuming managerial and corporate roles.
What to Expect During the Hiring Process
TacoTime needs upbeat, diligent workers. Most job settings posit employees in fast-paced and sometimes hectic work environments. During interviews, show a strong work ethic and a positive, customer-focused attitude. Answer all questions honestly and carefully, paying special attention to experiences in the fast food industry or in a customer service position, if possible. Specific interview questions often include: "Do you enjoy working with others?" and "What are some of your personal interests?" At the end of each interview, many prospective employees receive a final determination on hiring status. If not, the quick-service restaurant chain generally contacts eligible workers about possible jobs within a week or so.
