    I worked at Love's Travel Stops & Country Stores full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good pay, generous benefits package, generous yearly bonus (depending on your department and/or management), free fruit for all employees, free soda, coffee, and tea in break rooms, volunteer and community involvement, huge yearly holiday party for corporate employees, sports and event ticket giveaways, wellness incentives and activities, corporate on-site gym and cafe, great coworkers.

    Cons

    Don't be dazzled by the fancy corporate offices, shiny facade, and cute heart logo, this place has serious problems that run deep. After all, it was formed and is still run by an owner who started the company by buying a little gas station in Watonga, OK in the 60's, but forgetting to buy a permit to buy gas. This is unfortunately the same manner in which this multi billion dollar company is run today. The place is overrun by worthless middle management, project managers, and business analysts who are nothing but a bunch of snakes. Watch out for the PM's and BA's- they will use you for their needs, be your best friend, and then throw you right under the bus. There is no room for advancement for the average Joe or Jane, no matter how hard you work your. You can advance if you are part of the "club" or a cute girl in a tight skirt. Communication with management is non-existent. Emails go completely ignored. Countless meetings are held at all times, yet nothing is ever achieved. By the time a new system is implemented and barely running, it is outmoded and another is being purchased to replace it. It is extremely hard to communicate with other departments. Absolutely no praise for individual achievement is given. Do not expect any praise or encouragement of any sort. You will work your tail off and may make decent money, but you will pay for it with the effects of stress on your health. The HR department is a joke. Don't ever expect to get anywhere with a complaint. Racism and sexism run rampant. Personally witnessed two black coworkers being racially discriminated against numerous times. Sexual harassment is commonplace. Salaried employees see themselves as far superior to hourly employees. I witnessed HR talk down on hourly employees stating that they aren't the "difference makers" in the company.

    Advice to Management

    Can all middle management, BA's, PM's, and start fresh. Do something about the discrimination. Remember to "buy the permit", i.e. cut all the crap and fat and run it like the multi-billion dollar business that it is.
