    I worked at Kangaroo Express full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Cashiers start above minimum wage, promotions possible, fun atmosphere if you are in one of the newer stores, nice touchscreen registers

    Cons

    Also depends on location but likely very high customer volumes, store managers low salary, assistants about 10 hourly, swing hours

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Corporate needs to address the condition of some stores and focus less on marginal profits

    Pros

    It is a great well established company to work for which includes health care benefits

    Cons

    Asisstant managers do not have the same benefits as store managers, pay is a little low for a fortune 500 company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your store employees well and they will do wonders for you.
    District managers should remember what its like to work inside the store, never forget where you came from.

    I worked at Kangaroo Express part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Customers were pretty nice, gain retail experience. Beat's being out in the heat.

    Cons

    None for the most part, depends on your manager. Sometimes they can set goals that are nearly impossible to reach. Try taking care of sweeping the parking lot, stocking the cooler, baby oil the gas pumps and trash cans, machine maintenance, dusting all the shelves. replacing the bibs on the fountain drink dispenser on top of checking the bathrooms every thirty minutes and brewing coffee every 15 while dealing with a steady stream of customers and worrying about the roller grill. You can get most if not all of that done, however it can be tough. God forbid you do not make it to one random thing and have a bad manager though.. hope you like being chewed out!
