Taco Bell’s answer to tight labor pool: Throw 600 hiring parties

Following a successful pilot program last year, Taco Bell is throwing 600 hiring parties later this month to attract more applicants amid a challenging labor market, the company said Thursday.

The parties, scheduled April 22 to 27, will include free food, trivia games, Instagram photo ops and Taco Bell swag. Qualified job candidates will be interviewed — and possibly hired on the spot.

The parties are taking place in 450 cities across the country for positions ranging from drive-thru workers to management. To seal the deal, Taco Bell will explain to applicants the perks associated with working for the Irvine, Calif.-based brand such as scholarship opportunities, tuition assistance and educational counseling.

“At Taco Bell, we believe that creating a different sort of work place starts with a hiring process as unique as we are,” chief people officer Frank Tucker said in a statement. “People are an integral part of the brand and Hiring Parties provide job candidates with an insider’s look at what makes Taco Bell restaurants a place to want to work and grow.”
