    I have been working at Kwik Trip full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Kwik Trip takes very good care of their employees including sharing 40% of their profits with employees. There are no better owners than the ZIetlow family.

    Cons

    There are not always opportunities for advancement if you are looking for management positions. Very low turnover in management, which is good, but bad for being promoted.

    Advice to Management

    For a large corporation we have expensive health insurance. Much better options out there based on other self funded plans.

    I have been working at Kwik Trip part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good pay, get yearly bonuses. Company likes to keep you in the loop. Many stores open yearly with many positions with high up word mobility.

    Cons

    Worked very hard, often without breaks. Company is all about profit and works hard to make sure you have little help in the form of coworkers.

    Advice to Management

    We are not slaves, even if we are paid well.

    Pros

    Very positive environment Decent compensation for type of work Benefits offered to all, regardless whether PT or FT employed

    All employees are required to buy their own uniforms. Promotions aren't that rewarding - tons more responsibility, itty bitty pay increases.

    Pros

    Absoultly great to their employees! flexible schedules and so much room to move up in the company

    Cons

    There are not alot of full time positions if you go to a smaller store. The big Kwik Stars have lots of full time.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work! I valued you as a great management system to work under.

    Pros

    Kwik Trip is the kind of company you can be proud to work for. They take excellent care of their employees and have quality products that you can feel good about selling. The family that owns the company treats their employees like family. Thoroughly impressed.

    Cons

    Some of the employees in smaller towns run things their way when management isn't looking, instead of the way the actual corporate expects. Corporate has an excellent structure, so it is unfortunate when it isn't followed.

    Advice to Management

    Uniform training and expectations for new employees and current would benefit the company greatly. This may have been a staffing issue more than company issue however.

    Pros

    Time goes by fast, great customers, great co workers, profit sharing, solid values/ethics, and a structured but yet easy going work environment.

    Cons

    Most of the time you're either in the clique or you're not as far as upper management goes, weird hours for part time employees, short breaks

    Advice to Management

    Don't delegate all of your job duties to co-workers and shift leaders
