    I have been working at The Pantry full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Really good people at the Corporate Headquarters. A laid back environment with not a lot of stress. Yearly bonuses with some years really good and some just okay. Yearly salary reviews and always at least some kind of raise. Quality, high integrity people and company.

    Cons

    Upper level management has had a lot of instability. Sometimes lack of direction and leadership. It seems that upper management does not have a clear strategy or the strategy is always changing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to be more competitive in fuel prices to increase volume and get customers inside the store. Get rid of the layers of mid to higher level management and some of the dead weight employees to become more efficient and profitable. Stop rewarding those who contribute less and reward those who contribute more.

    Pros

    Challanging, active, and thought provocking. Nice to have some independance as well as suppoort.

    Cons

    low pay, restricted hours, sometimes dealing with stressed folks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    adopt better ordering process to satisfy customers and employees, and all phone numbers for occasional occurances should be combined in a book somewhere, to spare unnecessary management calls and save time. Consider ideas and input from even the lowest on the todumpole.
