It was a job

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Speedway LLC

ProsI worked there for 4 years at various locations under various managers. It was fast passed and never a dull moment. I did love the versatility of my day everyday. Most of the managers I worked for at most of the stores I worked at were good. I actually miss this job, just could not sustain life on the pay.

ConsHard to move up without having to work 2nd and 3rd shift. I moved up to an assistant manager after 6 months but had to get bumped back down do to scheduling issues. I still continued to do most of the assistants job with out the extra pay.

Advice to Senior ManagementI'm not sure exactly what would be good advice. I was treated fairly, it was a minimum wage job. I worked hard and got above minimum wage quickly. I just couldn't do the schedule that was needed for even more pay. I would say they need a better training program, most of what I learned was through trial and error and every manager has you do it differently.

It started out great, then a toxic store environment cost me a job

Co-Manager (Former Employee)
Kentwood, MI

I worked at Speedway LLC full-time for more than a year

ProsThe people you typically work with are great. Most seasoned employees know what they're doing and are good to work with. Corporate management is visible. Corporate programs are spelled out in black & white. Compensation is not in line with stress level but can be good if your store bonuses.

ConsConstant turnover. Bad managers doing poor jobs. Little communication much of the time. Regional hiring department SUCKS--hires bad candidates for the wrong positions & takes it out of your hands. No employee discounts. Few to no employee breaks. Constantly changing programs and procedures. Training program is faulty. CMT program is laughably designed--hires people without any position to place them in. Store bonuses are nill & pass/fail rate for store shops is extraordinarily BAD. Co-Managers in busy stores have ZERO work/life balance. This does not make the little pay worth it--pay they over-inflate at time of hiring.

Advice to Senior ManagementFix the store shops process to reflect realistic expectations. Stop hiring CMTs when there is nowhere to place them. Hire more intelligently at the store level and be better prepared for turnover. Make the work/life balance better for management.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Good & Bad

ProsFriendly co-workers, weekly paychecks, great accesible locations

ConsBonus based on entire store, if you're lacking in one area you fail almost everytime. Lazy manager, he was fired for stealing from the safe, rude & ignorant customers sometimes. Under-age kids trying to buy tobacco. No free meals or discounts. I was training to be shift lead but classes were never set up for me in Springboro

Advice to Senior ManagementWork hard like your employees & don't steal(management) because you will get caught
