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

    Pros

    Always something to do. Fun place to work. Good benefits and discounts from other companies

    Cons

    No breaks, solicitors at some stores & paranoia of possibly being robbed overnight

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Show a little more appreciation to the associates & make sure you're aware of ALL outs before making orders. It's annoying working with limited or no supplies

    I worked at RaceTrac Petroleum full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    It was a job not a career goal for me.

    Cons

    Put in a schedule change almost a month before school started and did not get it obligated. Seems impossible to to receive a schedule change if you want to switch or have less overnight shifts. Basically, I felt trapped working overnight and extra tired during school days.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire more DS/DM and promote within, get better people to do the hiring

    Pros

    There is a lot to learn at RaceTrac, and they help enable you with the tools to grow.

    Cons

    It's a slow moving corporation and the turnover is extremely high. It doesn't lend to a place where you'd like to spend more than a few years.

    I have been working at RaceTrac Petroleum full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Started out as a part timer as a second job and was able to work my way up to management. If you give high effort, take time to help your team improve, take on as much responsibilities as you can and are consistently reliable you will move up.

    Cons

    Some of our staff has locked themselves into positions..."lifers" won't move up due to their inaction but are too comfortable to leave.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Dedicate more resources to training associates and lower management.
