    Pros

    paid pretty well for the industry and was a company that was growing. They really hit their stride when they were able to merge with Pilot Flying J.

    Cons

    Constant change of vision. There was no continuity in decision making. Three Presidents in three years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow your people to be of the solution. They are not the problem if you train them well enough and manage them properly.

    Stressful and unappreciated

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    Challenging and always changing. Customers are almost as entertaining as wal-Mart

    Cons

    Some of the facilities are in poor shape, most of the upper management don't have a clue what goes on in the store any longer. There is very little communication between corporate and people at store level . The people at the corporate office seem to think they are a little better did people that work in the field.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop letting marketing run the show they have no clue. Listen to your ad police the deal with the stores on a daily basis

    It's too bad the employees care more about the company than upper management does.

    Pros

    Great employees, mostly great customers, meeting new people everyday, being able to help my employees by scheduling them at the times they needed

    Cons

    Low pay for managers and staff, no free meals (Ever), constant threats of write ups. No concern for employees at all. Difficult upper management. Stressful at this location. Will not let you update equipment, and they expect you to do your own maintenance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Show employees a little loyalty. There are some awesome employees at this store, show them some thankfulness.

    Pros

    I can't really think of any pros for working at Road Ranger. Well, they do promote from within. I suppose that could be considered a good thing.

    Cons

    Minimum wage, insufficient training, working alone, ever-changing schedule, multiple robberies, poorly maintained.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your workers more...at least $10 an hour. Provide intense, specific training and make it longer than a few days. Never let employees work the store alone.

    Pros

    Mostly middle-aged to older employees. Nice people; close-by; can be fun; Hard working employees that take pride in their workplace.

    Cons

    Very stressful; You are the only person on third shift; Employees are treated like they should perform the work of two people for minimum wage. Employees have to pay an average of $22 for work shirts that advertise Road Ranger that must be worn while working.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees better. Provide your employees with some perks such as providing work shirts!
