    Good Place

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsI am really sorry I left this wonderful place. Every one was really nice and the girls were smoking hot.

    ConsThe dress code was too restrictive. The break room had a camera in it.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTake the camera out of the break room

    Terrible Management Team

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsThey offer a good benefit package

    ConsThe store I worked had 3 managers in 18 months. The DM was unfriendly and condescending at times. The employee turnover was way too high partially because of the constant management turn over with resulting low morale!

    Advice to Senior ManagementFind new mid level managers.

    Overall Working for Speedy Stop is a positive experience . Although, there are many obstacles to triumph over.

    Assistant Manager (Former Employee)

    ProsThe best reason was the finances. It was fair pay for a fair amount of work.

    ConsEven though, Speedy Stop promises oppurtunity in employment and advancement in the company there isn't. There is a close knitted upper management group that underhandedly bullies and undermines ones assets that they provide for the company. " If you don't fit in you don't get in."

    Advice to Senior ManagementI am not in any form as experienced as the human resources department personnel is but may I ask ; for the future of the company, may be could you do more analyzing on the situations brought to attention? Do we follow a process of elimination and is it thorough? If Speedy Stop is a company with a promise of future for their employees then why isn't th ere a chancet to retrain or restart?

    – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    It was fun to work here.

    Customer Service Representative (Former Employee)
    Port Lavaca, TX

    ProsIn over all meeting the customers was the best part of this job. Made lots of friends that keep coming back day after day.

    ConsIt was a good job. But when u have coworkers who thought it was a play ground and didn't want to do work this job got to be a problem.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI did get along with my manager.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Decent job, but with draw backs

    Customer Service Representative (Current Employee)
    San Antonio, TX

    Pros-Above minimum wage pay for starting Customer Service Representative.
    -Potential to move up in the company
    -Decent benefits

    Cons-Pay is too low for the amount of work required. I make $8.50 an hour and I am basically on-call 24/7. I work graveyards 4+ nights a week, and have to work weekends and holidays. I am not compensated for any of these factors. You only receive extra pay for working Christmas day and Thanksgiving. And even then its only time and a half.
    -I get called in on days off to work at other locations, yet am punished if I hit overtime.
    -There is no fixed schedule, we normally find out what our week's work schedule is the day before a new week starts. This causes many problems. Additionally, the 2 people at my store that work the graveyard shift also work morning and day shifts. This week I've worked 10pm-6am, 6am-2pm, 2pm-11pm, and 10pm-8am. This obviously causes problems with sleeping, as I'm not able to develop any kind of regular sleep schedule.
    -No breaks at all, even during long shifts. I work 8, 9, and 10-hour shifts every week. I have worked 12, 13, 14, and 16 hour shifts before. Even during these long shifts, I get 0 breaks and am not allowed to sit down AT ALL. You can eat when there are no customers in the store, but you have to make it fast.
    -Many, many benefits were removed from the previous owner of the store I work at.
    -Management has shown itself to be somewhat incompetent, punishing employees when they can't figure out what happened.
    -If you work more than 32 hours a week on average, you're supposed to be considered full time. However, myself and a few of my coworkers work an average of 38-39.5 hours a week and are considered part time, and are therefore paid less and receive less benefits overall. However, this might be because we haven't quite been working there for 1 year yet.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPlease consider making things easier for the people working night shifts, maybe pay night shifts a flat amount extra per hour, as other companies do. A bit of schedule consistency would go a long way, as well.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
