    Pros

    Good benefits, easy to learn all the things that go with the job, very small town kind of gas station, amazing pizza and good start pay.

    Cons

    I think the corporation itself doesn't have cons, however the store I work at has many. When things get broken they don't get fixed, we run out of cigarettes quickly.

    Advice to Management

    Keep working toward getting better management and this company truly could achieve a lot and advance quickly.

    I worked at Casey's General Stores

    Pros

    I enjoyed meeting people and working with the public. I was able to work a flexible schedule that fit my needs.

    Cons

    Retail is not for everyone and it takes a lot of patience. I hated cleaning bathrooms after rude people destroyed them.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees and do some better prescreening before hiring managers. There were a lot of lazy good for nothing employees working there.

    Pros

    Above minimum wage for an entry level company
    Decent health and retirement benefits
    An employee discount (of sorts)

    Cons

    Horribly inconsistent hours
    Very few full time positions
    Training was never followed
    More duties assigned than there was time or staff available to accomplish

    Advice to Management

    Allow your assistant managers to actually manage, instead of just being glorified clerks that happen to have keys and be on call

    Pros

    good company, a week paid vacation every 6 months

    Cons

    because it's a convenience store, the people who work there are typically very dramatic and/or have a rough home life

    Advice to Management

    show more appreciation

    Pros

    Fulfilling work
    Time goes by fast when working in the kitchen

    Cons

    Being on call
    Co workers who don't show up
    Lack of work/life balance

    Advice to Management

    Go a little easier on your assistant and 2nd assistant managers. We shoulder the brunt of issues from having to cover shifts at a moment's notice to feeling ultimately responsible for the day to day running of the store. There is no way to schedule anything around work and no set schedule. It is difficult to find a work/life balance and for 2nd assistants the pay simply isn't enough.

    Pros

    They work around your schedule, let you request off any day you need, coworkers are nice.

    Cons

    People like to ask for days off and make you cover for them last minute

    Advice to Management

    Do not make the schedule so far in advance

    Pros

    Flexible shift, raises from here and there. Some opportunity for advancement. Benefits offered to even part-time employees.

    Cons

    It is one of your basic, low-paying jobs. Also, experience is going to differ store-to-store. My store was amazing to work for, where others had terrible reputations.

    Advice to Management

    Given the growth the company is experiencing, I believe it would be be beneficial to everyone if there was a management training course, or some sort of educational opportunity available to employees.


  11. It was an overall good experience, with a few bumps along the way.
