Great place to work!

Part Time Clerk Extra Relief Personnel (Current Employee)
Blue Springs, MO

I have been working at QuikTrip part-time for more than a year

ProsThey treat their employees respectfully and give every person in the company a chance to rise within the ranks. They promote from within almost exclusively. Great pay, very friendly people to work with. It's a great job whether you want a 40 hour per week schedule or just a few shifts each week to work around your schooling.

ConsCan become monotonous. If you are just a regular clerk, expect to lose some hours in the winter. Customers can sometimes be a pain.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

QuikTrip Corporation

Store Manager (Current Employee)
Kansas City, MO

I have been working at QuikTrip full-time for more than 10 years

ProsBenefits are awesome. They treat employees well.

ConsSchedules are long and horrible. Standing on your feet for 10 hours a day, without breaks, hurts. Store managers start at 5am everyday.

Healthy food has no place in QT. They wont sell it. They almost refuse. They are feeding obese people and dont care. I once asked when we were going to start selling healthier options to our customers. The respose was "When we can make money on it, we will sell it." Such a self serving answer.

QT has expanded so much in the last few years that it has changed the outlook in the company. Everyone is so driven to make more money...

Advice to Senior ManagementCare about what you are providing and not so much about the money that it brings in. There is a niche for healthy people; we could be a part of it.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Decent pay, no life outside work

Night Assistant (Current Employee)
Kansas City, MO

I have been working at QuikTrip full-time for more than 5 years

ProsAwesome benefits if you've worked there for over five years
Decent pay and bonuses
Part-time schedule flexibility
Most employees have fun, outgoing personalities

ConsFull time schedules are terrible. If you work here say goodbye to sleep or your social life. You can't have both.
Employees working in stores in bad areas will have a hard time not becoming extremely cynical.
Promotion process needs reworking. The best person for the job might not always get it

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Not a ideal Career choice.

Bakery (Former Employee)
Belton, MO

I worked at QuikTrip full-time for more than 3 years

ProsCompetitive. Friendly. Forty hour work weeks.

ConsAdvancement isn't easy unless you know someone in the company. The wrong people get put in the wrong higher positions. Seems like the company cares more about the quality of the products instead of the way the employees feel.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Hard work pays off

Overnight Clerk (Current Employee)
Kansas City, MO

I have been working at QuikTrip full-time for more than 3 years

Pros- in fortune 100's top companies
- not a public company so the only share holders and QT employees
- 95% of managment and corporate positions are held by people that started as clerks
- payed weekly (direct deposit)
- many, many benefits
- almost all of the managers are very down to earth, and the chain of command is laid out well enough to solve most store team problems

ConsDepending on where your store is you might encounter a few less than nice people but hey, thats how sales go.

Great company to work for, especially if it is first your first job!

Clerk (Current Employee)
Kansas City, MO

I have been working at QuikTrip part-time for more than 8 years

ProsGood pay, good benefits, good structure

ConsPromotion system is a little flawed. Assistant managers are often young and too immature for authority given to them.

Advice to Senior ManagementSpecial promotions should be allowed for employees with degrees. The upper tiers of the company and some of the outside help employed need more input from clerks at the stores in developing policies and design of the stores.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Putting employee compensation ahead of profit and bottom line, this company was built by loyalty.

Commissary P1 (Current Employee)
Belton, MO

I have been working at QuikTrip part-time for less than a year

ProsFree coffee, drinks, donuts and sweet discount on sandwiches. Very structured process, very patience with employee development. You can also make alot of money there to!

ConsThey start you off part-time until you get promoted to full-time, which means you probably need a second job.

Advice to Senior ManagementTry to go global in case the US economy fails. Don't ever change the values and practices that built this company.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
