  2. RaceTrac overall is a pretty decent company to work for, with flexible hours and a desire to promote from within.

    Pros

    They prefer to promote from within, so if you work hard enough for it, you can easily get promoted.

    Cons

    It's a lot of work in a very frustrating, fast paced environment. A lot of the members of this company are only out to cover their own behinds, which doesn't help.

    I have been working at RaceTrac Petroleum part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Good Pay
    Mostly Cool Customers or "Guests"

    Cons

    You get stuck on shifts you didn't list in your availability
    Unfair treatment
    Store Managers don't get out schedules on time (mostly the day before they're needed when you're told at orientation that they are provided three weeks ahead of time)
    Overnight work is tedious, boring, detailed, and is never appreciated even when you arrive to work and there's a list waiting for you.
    They have great values.... which are never followed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to your associates. We make the store work. We make you look good.

    Pros

    Weekly pay, fun people to work with.

    Cons

    No work life balance low pay for night mangers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Higher pay for night mangers. Work on work life balance for your other managers and not just your Store mangers.

    I have been working at RaceTrac Petroleum

    Pros

    Great benefits and weekly paychecks

    Cons

    Its impossible to get fired, so if you're a slacker with no ambition you will have a job forever. Very militant on dress code and guest relations

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Respect your associates! They are the reason managers get their almighty bonuses. Focus a little more on them and not your self-entitled customers and your store morale might just boost itself. What a concept!

    Pros

    Free soda and slurpees weekly paycheck

    Cons

    DS and OS care about the DS and the OS.
    Core values: management talks the talk, but does not walk the walk. No integrity above the SM level. Even that is questionable as SM's are only powerless puppets.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Care about your employees. Do the right thing. Strive for excellence......change your core values as they are perceived as meaningless by the majority of your employees here in the greater Tampa area.

    Pros

    Great place to start your career, Competitive goals, liberal perception, and clean environment.

    Cons

    Very conservative company in which limits career growth. The illusion of large profits is not long term. Lots of capital waste on the wrong technical devices to propagate data...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take the time to evaluate and compensate your talent. Conservatives and Liberalists need to have a meeting of the minds on a common goal of creating an edge over competitors. If an individual have more education than the next it is disregarded as textbook. The sad thing is this company is attempting to scale based on trial and error instead of knowledge.

    Easy work a lot of customer service and cleaning.

    Cons

    Corporate doesn't care at all, I've been asking to get off of nights for over a year now, and they told me it'll be atleast another year before I'll be able to get off of working nights

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate with your employees more, take consideration to what they need

    I have been working at RaceTrac Petroleum

    Pros

    Working for Racetrac has been a blast. I've met all kinds of people, worked with the best and worst. Management at my location has been pretty phenomenal. We have a great group of people at my store. Always meeting new people. The job itself is quite easy. If you've every worked in food or retail, it's a slight combination of both, but leaning toward more retail, similar to a small grocer. It can get busy, but that's when this job is at its best.

    Cons

    A few cons: somewhat higher-than-normal turnover, other co-workers constantly changing their availability, and I was part of a terrible orientation group. Just shocking at how insignificant the orientation was to my actual job outside of the TABC trainings.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When we hire new hires, better ways of connecting to both current associates and new hires during orientation. I didn't feel like I was joining a team environment at orientation. Nevertheless, I have a great management team, and I believe my field trainer was pretty awesome.
