Other Employee Reviews for Kum & Go

  1. It's a solid company if you just need to pay your bills.

    Pros

    The company has good policies (and some silly ones like even the peons wear ties), there is easy camaraderie between the employees and management, they pay everyone decent wages. Most stores have an eatery of some kind, and most are 24/7 so it's easy to find a niche or try something else if you get bored. The usual benefits of gas station work apply; fast-paced without being murderous, you'll get lots of customer service experience, etc.

    Cons

    Absolutely no benefits for non-management positions. No "breaks" per se, since there are "dead periods" when you may rest. Of course that time is spent on side work, so it's not quite fair.

    Advice to Management

    Would a week of vacation for the cashiers really ruin the company?

    I have been working at Kum & Go full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, potentially a "low stress" job, good company values

    Cons

    Too much workload for managers, poor communication from the top, company values not practiced, smaller stores are not viewed as a priority by upper management. Depending on the specific store you work at, this could be the best place you ever worked or the worst.

    Advice to Management

    Don't rely on intimidation factor when visiting stores. Upper management visits should be a purely positive experience.
