    Best Company I've Ever Worked For

    I worked at RaceTrac Petroleum full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The company really does hire from within. The managers always try to help you achieve your goals. They WANT you to be promoted as much as you yourself do. It's definitely a growing company, and all of the upper management I met were personable and friendly, never had their noses in the air.

    Cons

    I literally have no complaints.

    I worked at RaceTrac Petroleum full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    *RaceTrac has great benefits for its employees whether you're part-time or full-time
    *They willingly work around your school/second job schedule
    *You can move up very quickly (within a few months!)
    *Great place, great people, great energy
    * The people you meet want the best for you and it is very much a "team" environment, you all do great together and help each other out

    Cons

    *Getting promoted can be a struggle with the time frame, there's no specific length of time that the entire process will be done
    *You can only be promoted in a certain order so that may mean sacrificing a great schedule for something a little less appealing

    I worked at RaceTrac Petroleum full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Pay and benefits are above average... that's about it.
    Opportunity to meet some great people who are passionate about their work and genuinely care about the well-being of others.

    Cons

    A mere gas station that takes itself too seriously. If you are not one of the saints or divine in nature, DO NOT waste your time applying for this three-ring circus. One mistake and you are out the door. Nepotism and favoritism abound all the way to the top. If you're not a favorite, you will not last long. You have been warned! LOOK ELSEWHERE...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your 'Core Values' are a joke and to tout that Racetrac offers careers adds insult to injury. How many months and how many associates did you lose do to a crystal clear violation of your honesty core value? The Affordable Health Care Act is the law and you hired many people without informing them that they would only receive 10-15 hours per week (withholding information is a form of dishonesty). It took MONTHS for a greedy owner to reverse that decision, accounting for untold frustration and headaches. Perhaps you can add 'sincerity' to your 'core values', this may help in eliminating the many hypocrites you employ.

    Pros

    Paid weekly, if you show your reliable they get you the hours, or move you from part time to full fairly quickly

    Cons

    with a 20 word minimum...i wouldnt be able to list EVERYTHING wrong with this company

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Well since you, the reader is probably wondering.... yeah i got some advice to management...DO YOUR JOB. the amount of stress and pressure and regular associate is put under day in and day out is surly enough to push you towards a psychiatrist. Unreliable co workers..theres someone always calling in, weather it be the managers themselfs. or those schelduled for 16 hours a week, yeah the call in all the time. but then complain about the hours they want and arent getting! Ive herd alot of people state that racetrac is very "family" orianted but ive witnessed the opposite, when your not being lied to or manipulated, someones probably stabbing you in the back, I can think of a handful of times that my store was so short handed, and nobody cared nor bothered to answer their phone, that i was forced to stand along side a co worker and run the enitre store! Management thats a laughable title in this company. other than being lazy, 2 faced, and just overall vidictivly nasty towards those they dont like, there filled with empty promises and false hope to make you think that your an asset there! please dont forget your disposable to them. Money goes missing all the time and is never accounted for! but still some how thing are always over looked. the romises of a raise and that the store will change. are made on the daily, also not to mention the ciggerette counts and lotto counts are always messed up. the blame willl be pointed at you reguardless what you do. no respect i hate this place. i would highly recommend not workin here! oh and also your co workers arnt your friends!
