The quick-serve company will hold its” fourth annual Hiring Parties” event on April 21. The one-day job fair will feature on-the-spot interview opportunities  at almost 2,000 participating company and franchise-owned U.S. locations across the U.S. The goal is to hire at least 5,000 employees asTaco Bell looks ahead to more restaurant reopenings, remodels and new builds throughout 2021.

Adhering to COVID-19 safety precautions,  the hiring parties will be held outside, in creative locations that include patio areas — some candidates may even be able to participate in drive-up interviews without needing to leave their car. Among other protocols, all participants and interview spots will be at least six feet apart and masks are mandatory.

 

Taco Bell, which more than 7,000 restaurans in approximately 30 countries, has set a goal of having 10,000 locations open globally this decade,
