    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.

    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.

    Great to get on your feet if ur full time. Simple work great ppl. 24 hrs so room for extra shifts if your availability is open. They promote within the company. Room for growth.

    Cons

    too corporate. Expectations are high. No weekend rotation for managers makes juggling work n personal life difficult.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

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

    Pros

    Decent pay, and flexible hours.Racetrac also has great insurance and there were always plenty of hours available, I never had to struggle to pick up an extra shift.

    Cons

    It was very demanding and honestly management and corporate couldn't care less about lower level positions. I often came home exhausted and depressed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Realize that without lower level employees you wouldnt be where you are. recommend all management and corporate should work in a store at least once and see what its like.

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

    Pros

    Most of the Managers I worked with where good people and fare.

    Cons

    Operations supervisors often hamper the moral of the store as they pick on Managers and walk around on there cell phones which is suppose to be against company policy.Many times they would come into the store and disrupt the flow of the store Basically there are to many operations supervisors and not enough help on the floor.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pick your battles, disapline those who do not show up for work on time. and reward the people you have that are consistant and do a good job.Stop telling new hires they can reach Management when you know very few stores are opening every year in a given area.The truth is your turnover rate at RaceTrac is horrible. Favoritism is alive and well at Race Trac .

    Pros

    fast past environment with room to grow. Flexible schedule, decent pay, down to earth CEO, and strong projected growth.

    Cons

    Accountability is not consistent, depends on who you know and you get a slap on the wrist.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Political game is in full effect and it's becoming out of control.
