I worked at Love's Country Stores

Pros

There are many nice stores in the Love's company. Not every location has as many issues at the store I was hired on to work for.

Cons

Management up the ladder all the way to the regional level was turning over very quickly. The General Manager at my store was stealing and there were major problems with the other managers that followed. Within a year there were 5 different General Managers and the cashier turnover was 300% and climbing. Employees had drug issues and staffing was a problem. Truck stops across the highway were paying $1 more an hour and would quickly recruit any positive addition to the team.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Truck stops are exhausting to manage because of the round the clock attention the store needs as well as the volume of product sold. Employee turnover and the quality of people being hired can also make management difficult. General Managers and Assistant Managers need better training, schedules, and pay.

    Pros

    The Love family takes very good care of their employees. Generous benefits, including profit sharing for a great many employees in "difference making" positions within the company. Very fast growth over the past 5 years and no signs of slowing anytime soon.

    Cons

    Salary is perhaps a bit low for comparable positions in the region, but I consider that to be at least partially offset by the strong benefits package.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you're not doing so already, start looking into ways to deliver compressed natural gas and other alternative fuels at the company's many outlets around the country right away. When petroleum fuel prices skyrocket again I don't want my job and the company to be at risk.
