Nice, but still wouldn't want to work there.

Taco Bell is upping the ante in its pay and benefits, offering some managers six-figure salaries and giving workers paid sick days for the first time.

Starting Jan. 1, Taco Bell began offering workers in all its corporate-owned restaurants at least 24 hours of paid sick time a year, the company announced Thursday.

Paid sick time was not offered before, and employees need to be on the job for 90 days to be eligible for the benefit.

Some Taco Bell managers will also get a raise later this year. Calling it a test, the fast-food chain says that it will pay general managers of some company-owned restaurants $100,000 annually. Typically those supervisors make from $50,000 to $80,000.

Wow, I wouldn't do it in a million years, but I'm sure I could w/ the right training. I've worked fast food & retail before. Drive-thru employees still can't do $H!t right in the drive-thrus, so that shows what the managers are showing them.

Yeah, they're paid $100K and are worked to death. You'll never have a life again.

This would be a good job for people released from prison.

Sick time is not a big deal, it's law in some states and cities, such as here, amount based on number of employees.

As for the 100k salary, that's about the only way to get someone to do that job in some high cost areas and not that much than the $90k being paid already.

So you get 100k/year but have to work probably 60+ hours per week. Not my idea of fun.

Exactly, what's the point of earning that great salary if you don't have free time to enjoy it until you retire?

But they were previously working those hours for 50 to 80k previously, right? This is a huge raise for them. I am not a customer, but good for Taco Bell. Someone has to manage those restaurants.

Managing a fast food restaurant is not a "fast food" job. Chipotle, IIRC, was paying close to $100K for store managers years ago. Think about it... you've got someone who's responsible for 20 or more jobs, a half a million or more in payroll, maybe a couple million in annual revenue. And that's in a business with thin margins, intense competition, high turnover, and low-skill employees who have higher rates of tardiness, theft, etc. Managing a business like that is serious business. The wrong person can easily dump an otherwise-profitable business into the red pretty quickly.

Are there lots of low stress, 40-hour work week, $100K jobs out there? That doesn't seem that bad, imo.


cd :O)
