    An extremely unpleasant experience. Good while you look for something better.

    I worked at Kwik Trip full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Profit sharing, not much more.

    Cons

    Management, supervisors, flexibility, does not take federal ADA laws seriously.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Set realistic goals for sales, realize people lie on the surveys and are not as happy as you think, take mental health seriously, stop having supervisors build people up only to tear them down later. Train your leaders in compassion and empathy. Do a better job with job reviews for employees.

    Good employee benefit program but need to watch the little stores to be sure those employees get equal opportunities

    I worked at Kwik Trip part-time

    Pros

    They did offer a great profit sharing program. The management worked hard to work with me to help balance work and family.

    Cons

    I lost my vacation time as it had to be used and I worked extra hours to help the store and as I would have been over 40 hours they would not pay me my 8 hours vacation. I was not offered any chance to advance my career. Shift leaders would just yell when things did not go her way. Store manager lived by the motto if she got in trouble all the co workers under her would also get in trouble.

    Pros

    Excellent direction and growth opportunity.

    Cons

    The stigma against the convenience store doesn't go quietly

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the great work. Connections between ownership/upper management and co-workers is excellent. It really is one big family.

    I worked at Kwik Trip full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    One location I worked at gave me the same schedule that rotated every two weeks. I knew what days I worked ALL the time, thus could plan ahead. How nice this store leader was. Don't expect that anywhere else in this company.

    Cons

    Uh, no discounts at this job--none. I also literally threw out "expired food while I couldn't feed myself and family. I was very disheartening. The least this "family owned" company could have done was donate this food to a local food bank--but they didn't.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A chain is only as strong as its weakest link. Work with your team to make your store a cohesive unit. These "store leaders" apparently are not trained this way.

    Pros

    The salary and benefits are much above average, this company believes that if their employees are happy and cared for then their customers are much better off. Senior management is excellent. The company is very community-oriented and giving. This is a recommended company to work for.

    Cons

    There tends to be kind of short breaks but they pay you more so you are expected to work, which necessarily isn't a bad thing.

    Pros

    -Above average pay
    -Good benefits
    -PTO
    -8 hour shifts, with paid breaks
    -Chances to earn extra money through position ascension
    -Chances to earn extra money through passing periodic performance checks
    -Chances to get a share after 5 years of working fulltime
    -Can transfer from one store to the next at your convenience
    -40% profit sharing, your year end bonus!

    Cons

    -Can be very difficult to find replacement worker should you ever experience an emergency that would make it hard to impossible for you to work your own shift.
    -ALOT is expected out of you, so if you're not willing to work for that year-end bonus check, don't consider this employer.
    -There is room for coworkers to ascend in their shift position, but that can also lead to some people who might not be the best for that job.
