    Pros

    Weekly paycheck, customer loyalty, employment

    Cons

    This company will never have the back of an employee. I was A store Manager for 6 years and was terminated because of a customer. I did nithing to this customer and it was seen on video but because the customer called corporate , I was terminated. I had never been written up or disaplined prior to this incident. The turn over is horrible because I could'nt schedule associates or 28 hours, so of course they quit when they get full time. There is no help from upper management.

    Advice to Management

    The fact that you are losing money because Quick tip is killing you all in sales, maybe you should step up your loyalty to employees as much as there is for customers.

    Customers are the best! I enjoyed getting to know my customers and their families.

    Moved managers too much. After the merger started with Circle K, District manager started to not care anymore and it showed in their participation at the store level.

    Advice to Management

    We are all on the same team. A little support goes a long way among your peers.
