    Pros

    fun people
    good pizza
    nothing else really.

    Cons

    purposely schedule you under 8 hours, anything under 8 hours you get one fifteen minute break. You get a 1/2 off food discount when you're working but you can't bring anything even outside the building that you bought with the discount! Can't even eat expired food, they would rather have you THROW IT IN THE GARBAGE than actually eat it, talk about a waste. Don't work with your schedule, high turnover rates, don't train anyone properly and give workers terrible hours. One week you might work fifty hours, the next week you might work twelve. Plays favorites....I could go on forever

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    CARE ABOUT YOUR EMPLOYEES. Stop being so stingy, you make alot of money, how about caring about the people that work for you.

    Pros

    Great people to work with. A lot of respect for the management team. A lot of mobility if you're willing.

    Cons

    Pay is pretty low. Little incentive to be an assistant manager because the change is pay is too minimal.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase the pay so that you can attract better employees and retention.

    I worked at Casey's General Stores full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The cashier job itself was easy and pretty pleasant because i love being social, i LOVE caseys pizza so half off pizza with employee discount was great, and the pizza girls were cool to talk to, but thats about it for the pros.

    Cons

    I would have dine fine here but i was absolutely NOT properly trained, and my assistant manager had an attitude problem. I was there for three days before i was told i need to restock the drinks (that ones pretty obvious but if it isnt brought to your attention u might not even think about it) i just clicked out for the night when i was finally told i have to restock before i leave, so i had to stay an extra 40 min. Me and 2 other new employees were left to close one night and we had to call the manager because none of us were left a key to lock the doors and when the assistant manager showed up she chewed us out because "she told us how to close up and she should not have had to come in" when she's the one who didn't leave us a key. I have plenty examples of the horrible lack of training but this is long enough so i'm done now. Other casey's may be better but the one in grant city, Missouri is not too great.

    Pros

    Casey's General Store has nice staff, and the hours are pretty flexible.

    Cons

    Pay is minimum wage and you do a lot of work for the money. It is a lot more work than you would expect.

    Pros

    This company has the potential to be a great place to work,

    Cons

    HOWEVER the store manager doesn't give the employees the time of day and employee morale is at rock bottom. The pay scale at this store is 20% below stores just a 15 minute drive down the road.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This store is in a small town with no competition. That is no excuse for taking advantage of employees with less than a living wage. Have ya thought you could get more permanent employees by being wage competitive?

    Pros

    Customers are the best part of the job, coworkers are generally easy to get along with and work together.

    Cons

    Corporate job so upper management doesn't understand the individual problems of a specific store and bases their decisions on how well other stores are doing. Leads to being overworked, working unscheduled days and unnecessary write-ups for under performing as a result of stress and pressure.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More employees on the clock makes for an easier day and better customer service.

    Pros

    I work in a smaller town and I love that I know everyone and everyone knows me. The employees are like family. Our manager is really good at working with us when we need her to.

    Cons

    Corporate just sits in there big fancy pants offices and make all of these rules and regulations that make our jobs 100% more difficult rather than improving our efficiency and their revenue.
