    I have been working at Kwik Trip full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Shifts go by quickly, competitive pay for the industry.

    Job security, as long as you're working hard enough.

    Profit sharing up to 9.6% of your annual salary

    Cons

    Management to employee experience differs on who you are and who your managers are.

    There is a lot of finger pointing at this job, no one is afraid to throw you under the bus. This, however, varies by store.

    Lots of room for mistakes, they preach integrity but you don't really hear much about your work unless it's a complaint or something you messed up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Calm down

    Pros

    Family owned, you're not a number, great bonuses for all employees.

    Cons

    ALOT OF DRAMA! Management will pick favorites, large income gap between management and employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Watch your retail leaders a bit better. I could list several occurances in which I watched a member of the management stray from the core values. I would say that is your biggest enemy at this point, you have built a great company with a spotless reputation. It would be a shame to watch people continue to drag it through the mud.

    Pros

    Friendly coworkers, flexible, ability to pick up more hours as needed, Great pay, Benefits

    Cons

    Always asking to cover more shifts, limited break times, rude customers, not enough help when busy, open all day every day

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Kwik Trip was a great place to work. There really isn't anything to improve on except maybe schedule extra help during busy times and less when it is not busy like mid afternoon.
