I loved working at Casey's!

I worked at Casey's General Stores part-time (more than an year)

Pros

I thought the compensation was competative. I loved most of the people I worked with, and my managers were always very positive and helpful. I had been working a fair amount of overtime (more than 10 hours in one day), and my manager fought for me to be paid fairly for those hours, even though he was under pressure to reduce overtime costs.
The interaction with the locals in a small community was so fun!

Cons

It's hard to get all of the closing duties done with customers constantly walking through the door. That leads to either staying later, or not getting the work done.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Allowing even one free food item per shift might make your employees a little happier.
I realize that allowing employees to eat staled food might make you worry that kitchen workers will over produce. As long as the books are well-kept, that shouldn't be a problem. Plus, understanding the cost to the company, employees may eat the staled food as their one free item anyway. Then you have less waste and happier workers.

    I have been working at Casey's General Stores full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Co-workers are usually easy going,
    the work isn't all that difficult,
    1 1/2 pay for holidays,
    advancement is possible within a short time provided you can do the work

    Cons

    Hours can be hectic and sometimes newer part-timers take priority over full-timers that have been there for years,
    higher-ups can often set unreasonable daily shift tasks that require sacrifices to customer service,
    hours are not always effectively given/spread among employees/shifts

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees, we understand the more specific aspects of our respective stores just as much, if not more, because we deal with it on a day-to day basis; and don't cut stores hours to drastic levels then blame the employees because they have to sacrifice customer service to meet your upkeep demands.
