I worked at Love's Country Stores full-time (more than a year)Pros
It's a growing - profitable company.
You get a paycheck - might get lucky and get a bonus but it's tough!!Cons
You work every weekend - either 2 weekend days and 2 nights or 4 nights - you might get 3 days off if your store is staffed and meeting expectations - so be prepared to work more than your General Manager!
You will receive no training - everything you learn is up to you to learn as you go!! You are required to not only work the Travel Center but also the Restaurant and Tire Care Facility - so as you clean bathrooms or showers or change a tire be prepared to work with food as well!
The DM has no people skills what so ever and since he has no life he likes to watch stores on his laptop 7 days a week!!!! Turnover for all positions are over 225% and climbing.
Most important though - it's all about who you know and how much rear end you like to kiss to get anywhere in this company.Advice to ManagementAdvice
Update your facilities with proper equipment - get out of the 80's and use technology - better staffing with greatly improved training!!!!
You should end your Business Reviews - Corporate flies in, you pick them up in a van at the airport and you listen to them grip about numbers & performance all the way back to the store. The VP will tour the Tire Shop with that GM while the rest of the crew walks the store with the Division Manager and District Manager - the Divisional just points out things to fix so he can so he made a list of things to correct but never get corrected since nobody follows up and with turnover so high it's just the GM & DM that catch the grief but blame those who left!!!!
You need to take a serious look at your Middle Managers!!! Some of them need to go but because your stuck doing everything by paper you can't see where your problems exists and things are smoothed over since it's the good old boys club!!!
Female managers only exists in the Restaurants with very few in the Travel Center with no chance to advance!!!Doesn't RecommendNeutral OutlookNo opinion of CEO
