    Pros

    Open work environment, flex hours depending on your team/department, amazing values. They like to look for workers within their company, so they like to promote within and even allow people to switch departments to try something new. Management is involved and friendly. RaceTrac is truly a great place to work.

    Cons

    There are no cons.

    Pros

    Getting a management position can be a great way to turn your current job into a career. Many managers go on to become general managers or district managers, overseeing multiple stores. As an added bonus, your management experience can be used anywhere. Even if you decide, for instance, to go from the food service industry to the retail world, you'll be valued for your ability to lead a team.

    Cons

    Not only will you have your manager breathing down your neck about cutting store costs, you'll have your employees demanding everything from a bigger paycheck to more vacation time. You'll be the one held responsible every time something goes wrong. For instance, did the toilet overflow? You need to figure out how to fix it. Did three people call out for the same shift? Then you've got to replace them right now. The more responsibility you get, the more pressure you'll face.
