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

    Pros

    Promotion fully from within and hard work pays off. Excellent benefits--everything from monthly bonuses to healthcare is the best of any place I've ever worked. The company is truly caring and shows immense appreciation for all of their employees--a lot of the time directly from the CEO himself. Open door policy is encouraged and believed in.

    Cons

    Once you start dipping into management overtime becomes mandatory (although you are of course fairly compensated at a 1.5x amount), ranging from around two to six hours a week depending on rank.

    I have been working at QuikTrip part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    You can receive very large bonuses even for part time after 6 months. You can take a leave with almost no question and they will still let you start work. Potential to learn from several different management styles and work with many different team member personalities and work ethic.

    Cons

    Managers often do not give clerks the freedom to eat food if they are working in a busy store during an 8 hour shift.
    Pay is by the hour and only based on how many years you have been with the company unless you get promoted. I can work harder or not harder than my team members, but pay is still based on years with the company which creates little incentive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to look for ways to encourage and train employees in your store as there are many new employees being hired because of the kitchens. Either come up with a game plan during your shift or allow your clerks to create. Do not just let the clerks run around aimlessly with out direction. Make and effort to ensure clerks are able to eat during their shift.

    Everyone is nice, work goes by fast. You feel apart of a team.

    I worked at QuikTrip part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good pay, good benefits, good atmosphere most of the time (though some stores are just terrible), lots of managerial jobs.

    Cons

    They like to play favorites with their employees. They will promote people who don't deserve it in the least, while leaving more qualified personnel on the back burner. Some of the managers are really just rude and lazy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay more attention to who you are promoting and don't be afraid to demote people. Just because someone has been a manager for a long time doesn't mean they still should be/ever have been.

    I worked at QuikTrip

    Pros

    Promotions are actually attainable and there are always opportunities for growth or to try something else. They encourage education and are very family supportive.

    Cons

    The entry level involves working at least 2 overnights. If you're not a night owl it can be a deterrent, but this schedule does not last long.

    I have been working at QuikTrip

    Pros

    I came from working a minimum wage job and I believe QuikTrip is definitely a step up. Granted its a LOT of work, and any given shift, you'll be on your feet in communication with people from 6-9+ hours with no breaks. But that way, you get to keep all your money, aside from taxes (no non-paid breaks). A lot of people try to make it seem like its completely miserable not to have breaks, but you get a few minutes in your down time to munch and take a sip here and there. They generally give you as many hours as you can get, when you're part time. (I'm part time, I get about 37 hours a week) and they seem to care more than a normal job would, about your success with the company. Granted, it still is a company, but with nice occasional bonuses and tuition reimbursement, you really can't complain much.

    Cons

    They say that there isn't seniority, but most managers just stand around and tell you to do things that they could do themselves. Also, people who've worked there longer than you, will generally be treated better than you. But I've had two jobs prior to this one, and that seems to be the case for anyone who is upper level, or has some tenure.

    I have been working at QuikTrip

    Pros

    QT has some really great benefits with 401k matching and a couple of different health care options. They pay well for a job that doesn't require a college degree.

    Cons

    Sometimes it can be understaffed and you're pretty much left to deal with it, but this mostly occurs on holidays that managers don't expect to be busy or when there is a staffing shortage and no one wants to work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I wish more managers would give more feedback on when a job is well done that when something went wrong. Kind of balance the good and bad together, that way the employee isn't left feeling like they haven't done well at all.
